Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try to find sin A you won't find b there at all :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1443988627702:dw remember \[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\] if you want to find hypotenuse then you should use sin A =opposite/hyp

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your not solving for b properly you have to multiply both sides by b then divide by tan(82) bot sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1443988722622:dw given is opposite side of angle A and we want to find b which ration equal to opposite over adjacent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan 82 = 5/b b*tan 82 = 5 b = 5/tan 82

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the length of c I believe you would set up cos90=5/c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you mean cos 8 = 5/c ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1she is using right angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if its 5/c its cos 8 or sin 82

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 is the angle of B in degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but lets use sin 82 because 82 is a given information
