Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or is it supposed to be (2/sq.rt.(3))/3 ??? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's the same thing...just a bit more convoluted

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would just go with dw:1361913060716:dw

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

Best 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??? ;/

jim_thompson5910

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Consider 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?

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is 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_thompson5910

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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you sure it's not labeled?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah 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? :)

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay... :) 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 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sin(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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a^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

jim_thompson5910

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what should i write it out as??

iheartfood

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

jim_thompson5910

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

iheartfood

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

jim_thompson5910

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

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay... 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??

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes both are correct
