Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get confused with this, when the shapes do not have all the info. sine and tan i get all confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so we know that both triangles are similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would assume that 6/(x9) = x/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright sine , but im always confused on which numbers or variables to use

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sin = opp/hyp Cos = adj/hyp Tan = opp/adj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sine rule = sin(A)/a = sin(B)/b = sin(C)/c 1st triangle we have sin(90)/9= 2nd triangle we have sin(90)/6=

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we use the angle that is at A ?? it said shape ABC and find X and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you use the 90 degrees the whole time right ?? just making sure. I thought you would have to use the other angle

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it can change depends on situation

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we have to find x and y , so whats the situation call for ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, I just want to know how to tell which angle to use, I thought i would have to use the other one since it can reach both x and y but I guess im wrong. Im just super confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what type of triangle is this ?? 30 60 90 ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did you take both shapes from the original model for the question ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i split them out

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can see all the triangles

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if thats the case this is easy

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which one ?? im confused

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk i just put in the numbers, the largest triangle isnt 45/45/90

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so the one with the 6 ~

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or the lonesome 6 i mean

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok ? try what ?? the sine equation ?? on which numbers ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i vaguely remember 45 45 90 ~

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for 45/45/90 the its 6^2+6^2 = ??? (Pythagoras theorem)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait I got it wrong or did you round it down ?? The ^ did the mean multiply or ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{6^2+6^2}=8.48528\]

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh ~ should have put that earlier, I thought you meant multiply

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the adjacent side is 8.4 ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for a 45/45/90 triangle, length of opposite=length of adjacent

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought the hypotenuse was 6 already. ~ we are focusing on the smaller shape right??

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then its like this\[6^2 = 2a^2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1438398529080:dw are we doing this shape ? you confused me soo much.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but he hypotenuse is 6 already,

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol guess i look at the wrong stuff earler

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh hahah ~ i do that to~

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you see the placement of that lone 6 triangle, the adjacent + 9 is x

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait where did the 9 come from ?? the original one had only 6 the one I first posted

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you look at the big one

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but we never found the adjacent side ?? what was it ? and can you show me the step by step equation till you got the answer so im not as confused you keep appearing with answers

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ands its confusing me

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[6^2=2a^2\]\[36=2a^2\]\[18=a^2\]\[\sqrt{18}=a\]\[a=\sqrt{18}=4.2426\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1438399124678:dwyou know pythagoras is \[a^2+b^2=c^2\]for a 45/45/90 triangle a=b

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea I have seen that , soo the side oppisite of 6 on the smaller shape is 4.2 ?? i would add that to 9 to get x since x is the line BC~

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now use pythagoras to find y

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok then ~~ can you piece the equation together so i can try to work it out

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[c^2a^2=b^2\]\[13.24^26^2=y^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the opposite side of 6 is = ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the stuff i show you earlier

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the theorom ? yeaa i know how to solve that , but iM just saying where did the 6 . the side was never defined and the 9 was suppose to be in here i thought

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you look at the big triangle you see the 6 is at the bottom

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the x is the whole line segment, since you split it up you would have to use the nine i thought.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you mean abc?? without the diagonal cutting it off in the middle ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ! should have said that this whole time i thought you took two shapes cut off by the diagonal since they make two different shapes.
