# Thread: How do I solve this?

1. ## 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 $\frac{\pi}{3}$
