YW it clearly the longest right?

hero (hero):

Can you find the missing angle first?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and the other angle is \[90-51=39\] so the side opposite the smallest angle is the smallest

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so what is it then ?

hero (hero):

Basically, The side opposite the smallest angle is the smallest side. The side opposite the median angle is the median side. The side opposite the largest angle is the largest side.

hero (hero):

Do you think you can figure it out from here?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

hero (hero):

Delete what you wrote.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

go for it , doesnt bother me any (: hahahahahahahaha

hero (hero):

I don't see how you are not able to understand this.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

just like all the other questions .. i am unable to understand them , and that is why i post them . if i understood this , i wouldnt be posting any questions at all .

hero (hero):

Do you ever try to understand any of them?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes i do but its pretty hard to understand it when its over the internet & teachers wont help me out because they never have the time . they always come up with some excuse .

hero (hero):

I can help you, but I'm almost afraid to. I'm one of those people who like for students to understand things the first time.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well i am one of those people whom it takes a long time to understand so you dont have to help me , i just want someone to help me out and wont get mad that i dont understand it the first time , or second time or third time and so on . but i cant seem to do that on here now huh . i dont hate any of you or have anything against it , its just people EXPECT me to know this , and i know i should , but i struggle with it and like i said , if i knew this stuff , i wouldnt be wasting my time posting questions and i could be done with the assignments i have by now . but i dont get this stuff . so i am sorry .

hero (hero):

I see. Since you put it that way, I notice you are on here a lot. My only question is, "Do you really want to understand this stuff?".

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes , i do want to understand this stuff . more than anything . i know i dont show it , its because im in a rush to get this stuff done because i am so behind with it so i feel that i dont have the time to work it all through . but trust me , i would love to understand this stuff cuz then i would be done with everything by now .

hero (hero):

Hmmm. Well, maybe we can go over some of this stuff in vyew.

hero (hero):

But not today though because I'm busy.

OpenStudy (anonymous):
