    Not so fast. So we know that \(a=50\) degrees. \(\cos a=\frac BC\). \(C\) we know is \(90\). So yes, to solve for B, you would use \(B=90\cos a\).

    Alright, do you know what an operation is? \(\sin x\) and \(\cos x\) are like machines into which you put a number \(x\) and retrieve a value. So do \(\cos50\) first.

    No, even more importantly, \(\sin x\) is an operation performed on \(x\). You're used to operations like \(+,-,\times,\div\), but \(\sin x\) is an operation like that. You can't just move the \(\sin\) around.
