2. rizwan_uet

use sine theta to find x

3. dedderick

still not making sense

4. rizwan_uet

ok in this triangle are you seeing the longer and shorter leg

5. dedderick

yes

6. rizwan_uet

now i have denote the longer leg by x now to find x i use the following formula

7. rizwan_uet

|dw:1359552413610:dw|

8. rizwan_uet

now calculate x

9. dedderick

so divide the sin30 into the 8/sqrt of 3

10. rizwan_uet

yes but sin30 = 1/2 now solve it

11. dedderick

how would you type that in the calculator

12. rizwan_uet

have you scientific calculator???

13. dedderick

yes

14. rizwan_uet

press 8 then press / or divide button and then press 3 then = button

15. dedderick

ok i got 2.66

16. rizwan_uet

ok now clear your calculator's display

17. dedderick

k

18. rizwan_uet

ok now type 2.66 then press / and type 0.5 and press =

19. dedderick

ok i got 5.35

20. rizwan_uet

21. dedderick

thnx

22. rizwan_uet

welcome
