    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?

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

    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?

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

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

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

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

    wait a minute when the example put it like that

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    they are using proportions.
