    How do I solve this?

    A triangle has an angle R whose sine is equal to (1/3)√2.
    The angle is larger than 50 degrees in measure. Find the exact measure in degrees of the angle R.

    Wow...where do I even begin?

    I was thinking of writing down: Sine R = (1/3)√2
    R = sine^-1 ((1/3)√2))

    but it doesn't work..

    Or is it \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} ?

    This would give an exact value of \frac{\pi}{3}
