1. zordoloom

Use the Pythagorean theorem to find x.

2. zordoloom

24^2+10^2=x^2

3. zordoloom

Then use the law of sines to find one of the missing angles.

@coolaidd did u get that?????????

5. Dido525

You don't use to use the law of sines...

6. Dido525

It's a right angled triangle. Just use SOH CAH TOA.

7. coolaidd

not really :/

8. Aperogalics

@coolaidd lets go step by step first we have to find the value of x do u know Pythagorean theorem?????????

9. Dido525

You know the pythagorean theorem right? C^2=A^2+B^2

10. Dido525

We know two sides, so we can easily find the third side. C is the Hypotenuse of the triangle which we are attempting to find.

11. Aperogalics

@Dido525 i know u can solve it but wait for her plz:)

12. Dido525

I am not solving it!! ahaha :P .

13. Dido525

Just telling her the formulas :) .

14. Xero1999

Dido is awesome!

15. Aperogalics

@coolaidd can u tell about Pythagoras theorem??????

16. coolaidd

what is A and B?

17. privetek

1) x^2 = 10^2 + 24^2

18. Hares333

x=26cm

19. Hares333

x^2 = 10^2 + 24^2=26

20. Hares333

ok @coolaidd

21. privetek

1) x = 26 2) m<B = tan(10/24) = tan(5/12) 3) m<A = tan(24/10) = tan(12/5)

I hope this picture helps you see what the pothagorian therom is doing. |dw:1352884449352:dw|

23. rob1525

Notice that the area of the hypotonus is the sum of the areas of the sides. Do see....
