Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if π/6 is an angle in a right angled triangle then is it the smallest angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh it is not a right angled triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@satellite73 is the angle given in radian then the angle would be 30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Unkle it does say "not drawn to scale though"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then later when you are asked to "solve" a triangle it is impossible, because no one can draw the damn thing would the same moron who gave this problem draw a rectangle and label as follows dw:1349963756626:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not drawn to scale is no excuse you cannot make \(\frac{\pi}{6}\) larger than \(\frac{\pi}{3}\) it just doesn't make sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it still says triangles not drawn to scale...which is plural and i only see one >.>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, u mean to say not enough information given in the figure to say it is a right angled triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i mean the question is designed to confuse. the long side of the triangle is shorter than the short side. it is insane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah..... So, I said the given angle must be greater than pi/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to test this kind of knowledge, and for some reason don't want a visual clue then simply ask " if the side adjacent to an angle of \(\frac{\pi}{6}\) in a right triangle is 5 units long, find the lenght of the other sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's not mentioned that the triangle is a rightangled. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Advice to teachers: "Make sure that students appreciate that diagrams can be misleading etc etc.." Duh....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0advice to teachers: since it is clear that \(3<6\) you would think your students rather simple if they drew a rectangle and labelled the short side 6 and the long side 3, because that is just stupid by the same token, don't prove yourself just as stupid by making an angle of 30 degrees twice the side of an angle of 60 degrees, and then be amazed when a) they cannot solve your problem b) they cannot solve a right (or general) triangle because they are unable to draw a decent picture first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, excellent. I am of the opinion that diagrams, if treated with the same care as anything else in mathematics, add value.
