the 15 is on the long side and the 22 is where you put the x
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont know how to do that

the 22 is where you put the x
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
nope, "base angle" means the angle on the bottom
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
"altitude" is the height of the triangle
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
anyway, sin(22) = opposite/hypotenuse = x/15 solve for x
anonymous
  • anonymous
f 13.9 g 9.0 h 5.6 j 6.1 these are the awncer choices
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
alright, we know that sin(22) = x/15, so what is x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
um how do i do that ?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
hint: a = b/c b = c*a
anonymous
  • anonymous
so do i use a calculator
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
now look at what I wrote before: sin(22) = x/15
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do i put into the calculator
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
I'm trying to help you figure it out on your own let's try an easier problem: 2 = x/4, what is x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk i never learned sin and that stuff because i was new to the school and they already tought that
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
let'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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
no, please try again
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
what number gives you 2 when you divide it by 4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
what is 8 divided by 4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
great! so, what number gives you 2 when you divide it by 4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
excellent! so, if 2 = x/4, then x = 8, because 8 divided by 4 is 2
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
in order to find x, we multiplied 2*4
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
so, back to the sin stuff if sin(22) = x/15, we can find x by multiplying sin(22) and 15 so what is x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
so would i do something like that to get my awncer to the first question
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yup! so, if sin(22) = x/15, what is x?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
what two numbers do you need to multiply to get x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
15 and 22 ?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
not quite what is on the left side of the equation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
22
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
no, the whole thing
anonymous
  • anonymous
sin(22)
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
great! so, what do you multiply to get x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
22
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
no, please think again
anonymous
  • anonymous
sin(22)
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yes! so, what do you multiply to get x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sin(22)
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
you need to multiply TWO things, what's the other number?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
sin(22), and....?
anonymous
  • anonymous
15
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
YES!, sin(22) and 15!
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
x = sin(22) times 15
anonymous
  • anonymous
and that gives me 5.6
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
excellent work, you're done
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you so much !!!!!
