Can somebody please help with the steps to doing this ??
Part 1: Make up an angle measure for angle C and a length for one of the sides (AB, BC, or CA). Part 2: Use a trigonometric ratio (sine, cosine, or tangent) to solve for one of the other side lengths.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If m<C = 45, then m<A = 45, and m<B = 90. You have a 454590 triangle. In a 454590 traingle, the two legs are congruent (they have the same length). The hypotenuse is sqrt(2) times longer than the 2 legs.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since C is 45, then so is A. So, this will be an isosceles triangle and the measure of AB will equal the measure of BC. The sine of C = AB/AC. sine 45 = AB/AC (AC) sine 45 = AB = BC

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1btw the sine 45 = [sqrt(2)] / 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its supposed to be a right triangle.. i just added the angle measures on my own

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. All the above that I wrote bore that in mind.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, AB = (5)(sqrt 2) / 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For the length of AB, that's the answer. If you multiplied it out, you would get AB = 3.53553 etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's good that this is going well for you. Remember, sine = opposite over hypotenuse.
