Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You calculate the values for sine and then you solve for the missing item. In this case, it is only a simple multiplication.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, there is not 87 or 37. You must first calculate the sine of those angle measures.
