@jim_thompson5910 :) what do u think?? :D

From there you can rationalize the denominator dw:1361912794736:dw

or is it supposed to be (2/sq.rt.(3))/3 ??? :/
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but what you have is more or less correct

that's the same thing...just a bit more convoluted

I would just go with dw:1361913060716:dw
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay, so my steps are all right?? but the answer is just 2 sw.rt. 3 / 3 instead of 2/sq.rt. 3??

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and thats the final answer?? @jim_thompson5910 ?? :/

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
@jim_thompson5910 so the final answer would just be what you drew above? and the steps i did earlier are correct??? ;/
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes the final answer is dw:1361941352439:dw and your steps are correct

Consider the right triangle ABC that is attached... a. What is the length of the hypotenuse of triangle ABC? b. What is the length of the shorter leg of triangle ABC?

where are the letters A, B, C?

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it doesn't say :/ thats what i was thinking also... cuz aren't they usually labeled? :/

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
there are 3 triangles so I have no idea which triangle they're referring to
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is there any way you can assume where A, B, C are labeled?? cuz its a 306090 triangle right?? one of the special triangles? :/ ***tho i don't quite remember the rule it has... :/

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah but where do they go and which point is left out?

are you sure it's not labeled?
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah its not labeled.. :/ its kinda weird... then can we do this then?? ill ask my teacher tomorrow about it and then i will reply back over here ?? would that work? :)
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
**reply back here after i find out the labels?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sure that will work
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay hahaa :) thanks!! i will be back sometime tomorrow then!!! **if i can get online tomorrow night!!!*** hehe thankssss :)
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay... :) so i just asked my teacher and she said that the entire big triangle is ABC and she gave me a hint also!! :) she said that you will be finding the hypotenuse and the length of the leg by the angles given.. :/ but yeah! The HUGE triangle is triangle ABC :)

sin(30) = opp/hyp sin(30) = 15/x 1/2 = 15/x 1*x = 2*15 x = 30

sin(60) = opp/hyp sin(60) = 15/y sqrt(3)/2 = 15/y sqrt(3)*y = 2*15 sqrt(3)*y = 30 y = 30/sqrt(3) y = 30*sqrt(3)/3 y = 10*sqrt(3)

a^2 + b^2 = c^2 30^2 + (10*sqrt(3))^2 = z^2 900 + 100*3 = z^2 900 + 300 = z^2 keep going to find z
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that's the approximate answer, the exact answer is z = 20*sqrt(3)

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so what should i write it out as??
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and i show all the work that u drew /wrote above right??? those are the steps?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah that's one way to get the hypotenuse
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so that is the first part of the question right? what about the second part?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the shorter leg is 10*sqrt(3) units and I showed how to get that above as well
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay... so i for a the answer is z = 20*sqrt(3) which = 34.64 ?? and b is 10*sqrt(3) which equals 17.32 ?? is that right??? and it is all based on the steps u wrote above??
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes both are correct
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
