i don't understand one thing, in the answer part it shows how it's worked out, but where does the "2" come from?

Ok, so which part of the problem confused you?

- Mindblast3r

not sure where the heck that 2 comes from

- anonymous

I saw that. But which SPECIFIC part do you not understand? Did you understand everything up until the 2?

- Mindblast3r

yes, i have no idea why the 2 was put there or where it came from

- anonymous

Well as you saw before it, they divided \[\large \frac{1}{\frac{1}{2}}\] If you divide a fraction, it's the same as multiplying by the inverse. \[\large 1 \div \frac{1}{2}~=~1 \times \frac{2}{1}\] is this what confused you?

- Mindblast3r

wait, so in that whole equation all of those are equal??

- Mindblast3r

or is the 1 \[1 \times \frac{ 2 }{ 1 }\]

- Mindblast3r

1 divided by .5 = to 2, but not equal to the first part. Do you understand what i'm asking?

- anonymous

Tbh, not really. Are you asking about the properties of a 30-60-90 triangle or the properties of fractions?

- Mindblast3r

wait a minute when the example put it like that

- anonymous

Their explanation really was off-focus. They were comparing the problem they gave you to the example triangle, and I think that's what caused the confusion.

- Mindblast3r

\[\frac{ x }{ 2\sqrt{3}} =\frac{ 1 }{ \frac{ 1 }{ 2} }=2\]

- Mindblast3r

isn't it when they put it like that, it makes it equal?

- Mindblast3r

like everything.

- anonymous

Right. The \(\large \frac{x}{2\sqrt{3}}\) is from your triangle and the \(\large \frac{1}{\frac{1}{2}}\) was from the example triangle.

- anonymous

They were comparing the ratios, although the "=" wasn't the best way to do it.

- Mindblast3r

they are using proportions.

- Mindblast3r

you got that though?

- anonymous

Got what, exactly?

- Mindblast3r

bleh nevermind i don't even get what i was saying.

- Mindblast3r

i understand everything now! (I hope), i've been stcuk on that for such a long time thank you very much. <3
