Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Guys you cant use the law of sines on a triangle that's not 90 degrees angle, right????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looks to me like\[c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2}  2bc CosA\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nd no its not a right angle

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Law of sines is not only for right triangles.

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You cant use law of cosines, and I think if you were to try @ScottB05 's setup is incorrect.

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, you still cant use the law of cosines.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how do i start in this problem

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would say since the angles in a triangle must add to 180 degrees. Find your missing angle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now u think its solved by the law of cosines

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No, I think law of sines

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, since you know two angles..can you find the third one? Hint: all angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Great, so now your triangle looks like: dw:1355440610624:dw

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I may still be wrong but I believe this to be correct. Right until proven wrong =)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do u think brittni

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hm, this is interesting. The picture must be drawn incorrectly, two angles are equal so it has to be an isosceles triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1355445651964:dwHmm... Wait actually... Haha I just saw something cause u drew it like that

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Umm, cosine would be adjacent over hypotenuse, not hypotenuse over adjacent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm, and for the original triangle..xsin54 = 8sin63, x= 8.81

ScottB05

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So looks like we found a solution, x = 8.81; after about 2 hours? :)

Brittni0605
