Briefly; there is no such triangle if the angle marked as 60 degrees is that,Originally Posted by classicstrings
and the parallel lines are, and the lengths are as indicated, then your angle
marked as 50 degrees will in fact be more like 40 degrees, ie the data you
have been given is inconsistent, so of course you get different answers
depending on how you calculate things.
