Sine rule help! + pics
Hi everyone, new user on here!
I have an assignment in tomorrow which i have been trying to do for months! I will give you the question and hopefully some of you might be able to help me, i will also include a picture i drew :)
"In the diagram below (Fig 1)AB is the inclined jib of a crane and is 10m long. AC is 4m long. Using the sine rule, calculate the inclination of the jib to the vertical and the length of tie CB. "
Sorry its soo big. I hope someone can help me!
If the angle at C (the one on top of the upper slanty line) is 120 degrees, then the angle below is 60 degrees.
You have a side with length 10 and the measure of the angle opposite. You have a side with length 4 and you need the measure of the angle opposite.
Plug this information into the Law of Sines, and solve for the needed angle measure. (Wink)
Thanks i think i have nearly got it!
