# Thread: Manipulation of trig functions.

1. ## Manipulation of trig functions.

Hey team,
No doubt you'll find this an easy question to resolve, but I'm stuck.
I have a function as such:
5.67=(x)sin60
Of course, I'm trying to isolate (x), but the 60 it is really throwing me off course.
I believe the answer is somewhere around 9.
Thanks in advance.

2. ## hi

divide the whole equation by sin60

3. I assume the 60 is in degrees (not radians). Draw a 30, 60, 90 triangle and remember that sine is opposite over hypotenuse. Then solve for x.
