\[\frac{ a }{ \sin A }=\frac{ b }{ \sin B }=\frac{ c }{ \sin C }\]where a,b,c are sides and A,B,C are the angles opposite the corresponding sides

You don't have any right angles. "hypotenuse" doesn't mean anything for this triangle.

ohk so i get rid of the 37 first right?.... by multiplying?

You calculate the values for sine and then you solve for the missing item. In this case, it is only a simple multiplication.

i multiply 21 and 87?
 one year ago

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