I missed some school due to the flu, so I missed the concept completely.

My question:

In the equation sinΘ=0.85 (In degrees, 0≤Θ≤360), how do I solve for theta?

Are you allowed to use a calculator? If so, there's a sin-1 function. You'd just sin-1(.85) and get your result. Make sure you're in degrees mode on the calculator.

If you're not supposed to use a calculator, I'm sorry, I don't know. - Oct 22nd 2009, 01:21 AMThe Second Solution
