Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misty1212 oooh okay okay i see you so we just need to figure out the side leghts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right you notice the answer choices all have \(X=53^\circ\) so that was kind of a no brainer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misty1212 omg youre right haha well i got down to it and i'm at \[\frac{ \sin88 }{ 70 }=\frac{ \sin53 }{ x }\] i just put x for no reason

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a) we should the x for sure because there is an x there b) it is silly to put the variable in the denominator !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{x}{\sin(53)}=\frac{70}{\sin(88)}\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \[x=\frac{70\sin(53)}{\sin(88)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misty1212 so now \[\frac{ 70 }{ \sin88 } = \frac{ z }{ \sin39 }???\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misty1212 yeah i wanna keep going but i know i should stop because i keep getting really frustrated and feel like crying but thanks a lot misty i've never been so lost in a unit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1law of sines and cosines not as bad as a lot of trig for sure identities are much worse and solving equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misty1212 math usually just makes me feel really really dumb and usually feel liek giving up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1once you get the hang of it, you will think it is easy, trust me it is frustrating learning for sure, and i get the impression this is an on line class so it is kind of diy but don't give up plus you can always ask here seems like you are doing ok to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1maybe you got stuck on the proofs, the mechanics of solving triangles gets routine though law of sines, law of cosines, that is all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If two angles were given and one side I would immediately think of law of sine. When two sides are given with an angle makes sense to use law of cosine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's all about practice to master the concept! No need to get frustrated as learning new concepts take some time to sink in. Just keep practicing
