Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I solved for both a and b and got a= 20.48 b= 14.34

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok and I guess you rounded to the nearest hundredth a is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so to set up the problem it would be sin(55)=14.34/25 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1didn't you already solve the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also how could sin(55) be 14.34/25 when it was sin(55)=a/25 and you got a to be 20.48?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess I am confused. Because I found a and b and then it is asking me to find sin55.. but i tested ratios of sides and everthing comes out false

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you solved sin(55)=a/25 for a correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and you got a to be 20.48?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh gotcha! that makes way more sense so the ratio was just that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes replace a with what it equals not what b equals :p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sin(35)=\frac{b}{25} \\ \text{ so you could say } \sin(35)=\frac{14.34}{25}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just if they asked you to do sin(35)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1notice I replaced b with 14.34 since that is what you found b to be
