I need help figuring out how to solve for x on certain triangles. I can solve it easily if it has two sides or two angles already stated, but I don't know what to do if it only has one angle and one side. I'll give a couple examples in the comments.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sum of all the angles of a triangle is 180 so your one angle is given 20 and the other one is 90 as it is a rt angled triangle so the other angle is 180 (90+20)=70

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok. So would I use Pythagorean triples to solve for x?

madhu.mukherjee.946

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but one side is x and the other is 19 but you need to have data of another side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just don't think there is cuz there's other problems like this one but this one looked the simplest so I posted it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I found something in my book. If I mark the other unknown side as x, too, then I could do 2x squared = 19 squared and then find the square root

madhu.mukherjee.946

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2why will you mark the other side as x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, that's all it said besides the fact that it's not drawn to scale.

madhu.mukherjee.946

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then your sin 20=19/x sin 20 value is 0.34 so x=19/0.34=55.8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just in a calculater try the value of sin 20

Kailee1423

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok. Why is it the sin of 20 instead of 19?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sin 20 = 19/x\]\[0.342=19/x\]\[0.342x=19\]\[19/0.342=x\]
