Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean by "that is the length of the altitude to side AD" in the first place?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if i remember right your going to use cosine to find the distance from line BC to line AD, giving you your answer (its either cosine or sine, i dont remember them that well)
