    \[\sin 36=\frac{ 10 }{ x }\] \[(x*)\sin36=\frac{ 10 }{ x }(* X)\]

    \( (x*)\sin36=\frac{ 10 }{ \cancel{x} }(* \cancel{X}) \)

    so \[x=\frac{ 10 }{ \sin 36 }\]

    you got to Xsin36=10 if the problem was x*2 = 10 you would know what to do: divide both sides by 2 the reason you are unsure of what to do is you are forgetting that sin36 is just a fancy way to write down a number. You can always divide both sides by a number.
