hint ...we have an angle....and we have sides opposite to that angle...and the hypotenuse correct? what trig function uses opposite and hypotenuse?

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you can use the trig function sin.

exactly as @Hope_nicole has said....sin is opposite/hypotenus correct? so we have sin(x) = 11/17 we dont know x right? so we need to use the inverse sin to find this answer \[\sin^{1} 11/17\] this will give you your x...just do 11/17...then inverse sin...of that answer

do you understand the method behind that @Emily778 ?

How do I inverse the sin?

you have a calculator correct? instead of just hitting sin...hit "2nd" (probably a blue or yellow button in the top left hand side" then hit sin...that should be sin^1

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you hit the second button your calculator and then hit the sin button.

*****************remember to have your calculator in DEGREES mode and not RADIANS mode*********** :) that's a VERY common mistake

^i do that so much!

I don't know how to get it in degrees and I can't find the 2nd button
 one year ago

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the second button is going to be in the very top on the left.

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
there's shift, const, eng, mode, copy, and off at the top. No 2nd

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
then it would be shift, right @johnweldon1993
 one year ago

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah shift would be correct
 one year ago

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so shift...then sin...you should see \[\sin^{1} \] pop up
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay, shift sin and then 11/17?

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
um, I got 5.29 and then 10 ?

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
.....do 11/17 first thennnn do "shift" "sin" and then put the answer from 11/17 in there

Is this some kind of joke? I'm not getting any answer..._

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
do 11/17 and then hit shift sin
 one year ago

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
my calculator does it that way
 one year ago

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
....what calculator do you have? lol okay...well for me \[\sin^{1} 11/17\] comes out to 40 degrees...if you can figure out your calculators method to doing this lol....then awesome haha
 one year ago

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
try @Hope_nicole 's method
 one year ago

Hope_nicoleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes, try doing 11/17, hitting the equal button and then hitting shift sin

Thanks, @johnweldon1993 and I have a online graphing calculator.

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
:) did you figure out that calculator though? if not...i HIGHLY recommend getting a calculator...as you can see...they will come in handy
