The picture below shows a box sliding down a ramp: A right triangle ABC has measure of angle ABC equal to 90 degrees and measure of angle ACB equal to 68 degrees. The length of AB is 14 feet. What is the distance, in feet, that the box has to travel to move from point A to point C?

    sin 68 = 14 / AC now you need to solve for AC

    @RJAY56 yes you do! instead of calling it AC call it x. so you have sin 68=14/x. Start by flipping the equation so x is the numerator instead of the denominator. So 1/sin 68=x/14.
