Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"altitude" is the height of the triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyway, sin(22) = opposite/hypotenuse = x/15 solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, we know that sin(22) = x/15, so what is x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um how do i do that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hint: a = b/c b = c*a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do i use a calculator

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now look at what I wrote before: sin(22) = x/15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do i put into the calculator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm trying to help you figure it out on your own let's try an easier problem: 2 = x/4, what is x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk i never learned sin and that stuff because i was new to the school and they already tought that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let's ignore the sin stuff for now, just solve this problem: 2 = x/4 if x divided by 4 is 2, then what is x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what number gives you 2 when you divide it by 4?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is 8 divided by 4?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! so, what number gives you 2 when you divide it by 4?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0excellent! so, if 2 = x/4, then x = 8, because 8 divided by 4 is 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in order to find x, we multiplied 2*4

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, back to the sin stuff if sin(22) = x/15, we can find x by multiplying sin(22) and 15 so what is x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would i do something like that to get my awncer to the first question

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yup! so, if sin(22) = x/15, what is x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what two numbers do you need to multiply to get x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not quite what is on the left side of the equation?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! so, what do you multiply to get x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, please think again

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes! so, what do you multiply to get x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need to multiply TWO things, what's the other number?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0YES!, sin(22) and 15!
