    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.

    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.
