Figure 1 shows the triangle ABC, with AB=6cm, BC=4cm and CA=5cm

a) show that cosA=3/4

b) hence, or otherwise, find the exact value of sinA

thx!

thx! - April 6th 2008, 08:45 AMMathstud28here is how I would do this
imput correct values and solve for ...and for the second one use the law of sines which says that where caps are angles and lower case are sides
