3.Quilt squares are cut on the diagonal to form triangular quilt pieces. The hypotenuse of the resulting triangles is 34 inches long. What is the side length of each piece? a. 34 sqrt2 inches b. 17 sqrt3 inches c. 17 sqrt2 inches d. 13 inches

So since it is cut out of a square...we have the same 45 45 90 triangle thing... now we know the hypotenuse is 34 So that means the other 2 legs...would be a number times √2 that would = 34 \[\large x√2 = 34\] \[\large x = \frac{34}{√2}\] \[\large x = 17√2\]

Good idea :) But how would you put what in the calculator? There is a function key for square roots and everything on there (or at least should be)

yay thank you :) lol 4. Find the missing value to the nearest hundredth. sin___= 7/12
 4 months ago

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well for that we have \[\large sin(x) = \frac{7}{12}\]so\[\large x = \sin^{1}(\frac{7}{12})\]

And yes on a calculator that would be (2nd)(sin) also known as "arcsin"

You are more than likely in "radians" measure..you want to be in degrees :)

Google works just as well as a calculator :D

Alright so first do (7/12)

sin(7/12)?
 4 months ago

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Nope...just 7/12 to start

DrPepperx3 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
kk 7/12=.583

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
And since you are on a computer...copy that answer... And then hit (2nd)(sin) and paste the answer you got and hit enter
 4 months ago

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and if there is no (2nd) button...just look for a \(\sin^{1}\) button or an \(\text{arcsin}\) button
 4 months ago

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ahh you ARE in radian mode.... Look for a button that says \(\large \text{rad}\) or \(\large \text{deg}\) you want to be in deg "degree" mode
 4 months ago

DrPepperx3 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
there isn't a rad or deg on the calculator :c

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
O.o well that's terrible... Hmm try this http://www.metacalculator.com/online/ click on the green scientific calculator button
 4 months ago

johnweldon1993 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now you see there is a "units" thing with radians and degrees next to it....click degrees And do the calculation over again...go over and hit the \(\large \sin^{1}\) button and put in 7/12 :)
