    find the other angle. (It is a 30º-60º-90º triangle)

    Find y first using sine rule: sin 90/16sqrt(3) = sin y/30 then use pythagoras to find x

    Such a triangle (30º-60º-90º) goes by the following rule. |dw:1435593829269:dw|

    then you have to find the other angle since the top one has a small square it means its a right angle and that equals 90 degrees

    @Raymaa... I understand what your saying but with what @SolomonZelman @Jack1 @BPDlkeme234 are saying it confuses me. But I'm sure it all goes together somehow its just my lack of understanding. So, with that I understand the 30-60-90 with the triangle but I don't understand how to apply it to figure my answer out. Like I don't understand how to figure out what X is and the P (s) just confused me...

    so if ur ratio is 1 : 2 : sqrt 3 and you increase one of these numbers by 16 times then to keep the same ratio, you muse increase the others by 16 times 1 : 2 : sqrt 3 16 : 32 : 16 (sqrt 3) does this make sense @emmaleelooney ?
