SinB = sin^-1(38/63)
I end up with 37.1, but the answers said I wanted 52.9!
So I switched the sin^-1 for a cos^-1, and I ended up with 52.9. ):
Now my question is, why do I want to use cos instead of sin?
I really don't get it! I can't see why it's wrong to use sine since since is Opposite/Hypothenuse.
Thanks in advance!
