Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whaleee, the height of the triangles sides are both 6.71m I believe. The link I put has the picture of it if you need to refer to it. ππ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2SOH: \(\sin \theta = \dfrac{opp}{hyp} \) CAH: \(\cos \theta = \dfrac{adj}{hyp} \) TOA: \(\tan \theta = \dfrac{opp}{adj} \) The initials S (sine), C (cosine), T (tangent), O (opposite leg), A (adjacent leg), and H (hypotenuse) are used in the mnemonic above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You are asked for the sine. Looking above, or remembering the SOH part of SOHCAHTOA, you see that \(\sin \theta = \dfrac{opp}{hyp} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now look at angle D. For angle D, which side is the opposite leg? Which side is the hypotenuse?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And @bdavis07 uhhh, the base? i think since one side is 3 the other must be 3 so its 6 and @mathstudent55 ok, hold up let me think.....ok 6/6.71 would be sin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no no no. base is three and the height is 6 so b/h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The 3 m base of the small triangle to the left, or the 6 m base of the entire triangle, is not used in this problem. All we need here is the opposite leg and the hypotenuse since the sine ratio is the ratio of the opposite leg to the hypotenuse.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OKKKKK oh my goodness thank you so much!!! Honestly, I didn't even read it....I was just trying to get the answer fast....maybe I'm to honest...aha...lol thanks. I'm in summer school so this stuff is pretty overwhelming because i've forgotten a lot and i'm not that good at geometry..Thankyou both very much. π
