@Directrix I'm sorry I thought I understood what I was doing but if you could just explain how to solve for w please, and @Zelda if you can help i would appreciate it

First, you have to know what the 30-60-90 theorem says. It is written above in both symbols and words. Next, you have to know the names of the parts of the 30-60-90 triangle. I am marking them on a drawing. |dw:1360705600824:dw|
Directrix
  • Directrix
Do you understand that so far?
Directrix
  • Directrix
We will go step by step so that you understand. That is why I am asking.

yes

  • Directrix
If one angle of a right triangle is 30, then the other acute angle is 60. So, we have a 60 leg. Then, there is the hypotenuse. |dw:1360705782032:dw|
Directrix
  • Directrix
Does that make sense? If so, we're about to break out the theorem. :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes so far.
Directrix
  • Directrix
That's good news. So far, so good.
Directrix
  • Directrix
We want the length of w which is the hypotenuse. But, all we are given is the 60 leg.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes
Directrix
  • Directrix
When fooling with the 30-60-90 theorem, get the 30-leg first. I know we are not asked for the 30-leg but the 30-leg is the key to finding w, the hypotenuse.
Directrix
  • Directrix
Theorem Time; The 60-leg is sqrt(3) times the 30-leg. Agree?

Whoa, can you draw that??

Questions? (We have one more step. We are not yet finished.)

I understand
Directrix
  • Directrix
Note that in the latest posted picture, the 60 leg shows up as sqrt(3) times the 30-leg.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, I am aware of that.
Directrix
  • Directrix
The second part of the 30-60-90 theorem states that the hypotenuse is two times the 30-leg.

Ok...
Directrix
  • Directrix
So, w = 14. I can write it out. |dw:1360706716509:dw|

You can see the pattern in the diagram. That was what Zelda was talking about.
