could someone please assist me with this problem (number 16) ...when I put sin^-1 (1.504) i get an error on my calculator...I don't know what I am doing wrong...
there is really wrong with it.. take note that $\displaystyle -1 \leq sin \theta \leq 1$, and you got sin B = 1.504 which is out of range..
now, i noticed that angle $\displaystyle A = 110^o > 90^o$, which means that the side opposite A must be longer that any other sides.. maybe, there is something wrong with the given.., or else, no triangle is formed..
Hello, aikenfan!
You're doing nothing wrong.
The problem is a trick question . . .
$\displaystyle A = 110^o,\;a = 125,\;b = 200$
Try to sketch the triangle . . .Code:B * * * * * * * a = 125 * * * * * 110° * * * * * * * * * A b = 200 C
We can see that side $\displaystyle a$ is too short.
. . There is no triangle.
