what do you mean by "that is the length of the altitude to side AD" in the first place?
i don't know what that exactly means... or else i wouldn't have asked this question :\
dont you mean like how high above ground level is the parallelogram?
or something like that?
maybe ( or are you referencing the height)?
altitude is a reference to how high above or how low below ground/sea level
great, i just figured it out and i hate it
are you in trig rn?
@calculusxy i think i figured it out if you werent paying attention
no i don't know trig very well, but i can work with sine, cosine, tangent (only the basics)
thats what this is
line BC is going to be ground level for this
i don't quite understand what you mean
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?
thx show off
basically multiply the sine of 60 degrees by 12 to get your answer
h is altitude |dw:1442980656562:dw|
\[\sin 60=\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\]
i just said everything he put up there in a nice sentence without any complication
and how do i evaluate that @surjithayer
\[h=12 \sin 60=12*\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }=6\sqrt{3}\]
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 -_-
oh okay ! but is there any simper way of doing it?
and the perfect example is the one above
That's about the easiest way to do it with the given information.
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 >:(
i seriously think that letting someone finish there answer and explanation should be on the CoC
