Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2its alright....any idea on how to get the height? hint: tan(60deg.)=SQRT(3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wat is tan(60) equal to in the triangle that I added to ur picture?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry  tan is not the right function to use here! we need to use sin function instead. sin(60) = SQRT(3) / 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do I figure out what the height is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2compare the triangle i drew above n the one in ur drawing...also use this: sin(60) = SQRT(3) / 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I got that the base is 8 I just meant for the triangle it self.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you take bh to get the answer but first I need to figure out the height of the figure, correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2correct n u use the triangle n sin function to figure out h :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@moyer OK when u come back, apply sin(60) = SQRT(3) / 2 and u will get the ans. Good luck!
