Referring to the figure, find the sine of angle R.
Reduce the answer to the lowest terms.
Okay so i have literally no idea how to do this so if someone could just explain it to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and the hypotenuse is RS the hypotenuse is always the longest side of a right triangle it is always opposite the right angle dw:1440467770507:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now use SOH CAH TOA the SOH refers to S = sine O = opposite H = hypotenuse basically sine(angle) = opposite/hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so sin(R) = opposite/hypotenuse = TS/RS = 8/10 = 4/5
