The Question: Consider a right triangle with a side of length x opposite angle A, a side of length y opposite angle B, and a hypotenuse of length z opposite the right angle. If sinB= 1/√3 and x=4, find the length of the other side (y) and the length of the hypotenuse (z).
This is how I sketched the problem right triangle diagram
It seems to me that the question has already gave us the value of y and z because sinB = opposite/hypotenuse = 1/√3 = y/z
When I enter 1 as the value for y and √3 as the value for z, I get the answer wrong.
What's the correct way to solve this problem? What am I not getting?
