what do you mean by "that is the length of the altitude to side AD" in the first place?
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
i don't know what that exactly means... or else i wouldn't have asked this question :\
anonymous
  • anonymous
dont you mean like how high above ground level is the parallelogram?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or something like that?
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
maybe ( or are you referencing the height)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
altitude is a reference to how high above or how low below ground/sea level
anonymous
  • anonymous
great, i just figured it out and i hate it
anonymous
  • anonymous
are you in trig rn?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@calculusxy i think i figured it out if you werent paying attention
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
no i don't know trig very well, but i can work with sine, cosine, tangent (only the basics)
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats what this is
anonymous
  • anonymous
line BC is going to be ground level for this
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
i don't quite understand what you mean
anonymous
  • anonymous
if 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)

@surjithayer Can you plz explain this to me more?
anonymous
  • anonymous
thx show off
anonymous
  • anonymous
basically multiply the sine of 60 degrees by 12 to get your answer

h is altitude |dw:1442980656562:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\sin 60=\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just said everything he put up there in a nice sentence without any complication
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
and how do i evaluate that @surjithayer
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[h=12 \sin 60=12*\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }=6\sqrt{3}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
i like how i always start it then someone else comes in and takes all the fricken credit that i actually did before they did -_-

  • calculusxy
oh okay ! but is there any simper way of doing it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the perfect example is the one above

  • Jhannybean
That's about the easiest way to do it with the given information.
anonymous
  • anonymous
thx for saying i had no idea what im doing and that a person that does the exact same thing makes complete sense, can someone explain that one to me >:(
anonymous
  • anonymous
i seriously think that letting someone finish there answer and explanation should be on the CoC
