The question :

__e __= __54.0 __

sin 50 degrees sin 44 degrees

than it goes

e= __54.0 sin 50 degrees __

sin 44 degress

than it equals out to

e=59.6 (there's a little dot over the = sign)

and i am so confused... because no where does it tell you how to get rid of these signs.... PLEASE someone help...
