    Finding area and angles with sine ratio

    The area of acute-angled isosceles triangle PQR is 8cm squared. PQ = QR = 6cm. Find angle PQR to 2 decimal places.

    I tried it and got 4/9, but its not right. Please help.
    Thankyou

    You just didn't finish.

    Area = \frac{1}{2}a^{2}sin{\theta}=8

    18sin{\theta}=8

    sin{\theta}=\frac{4}{9}

    {\theta}=sin^{-1}(\frac{4}{9})
