|dw:1438783098376:dw| i think first you need to find hypotenuse side of right triangle by using \[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\]

use sin function \[\rm sin 60= \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }\]

are you studying trigonometry (using sin and cos) or are you supposed to be using "special triangles" in this case, 30-60-90 triangles?

@phi Im studying trig

in that case, use nnesha's picture notice in the red triangle, \[\tan 60 = \frac{200\sqrt{3}}{x} \] tan 60 is one of those values you should memorize. it is sqr(3) thus \[ \sqrt{3}= \frac{200\sqrt{3}}{x} \\ x= 200\] now for the large triangle \[ \tan 30 = \frac{200\sqrt{3}}{x} \] tan 30 = 1/sqrt(3) so you have \[ \frac{1}{\sqrt{3} }= \frac{200\sqrt{3}}{x} \] hopefully you find x= 600 thus the bottom of the big triangle is 600 the distance from G to zoo is 200 the difference is the distance from the zoo and library.
