need help with checking answers and #10 and 12 https://ibb.co/gLvnHx

Shadow:

#10 is a 30-60-90 Triangle Sides Opposite to Angles 90 - 2a 60 - a sqrt 3 30 - a They give the hypotenuse, which is 2x You can solve for y, the side opposite to angle 30 You can do this by dividing (4 sqrt 3) by 2. From 2a -> a \[\frac{ 4 \sqrt 3 }{ 2 } = y\]

Shadow:

y = a as per the 30 60 90 rule The side opposite to the angle 60 is a sqrt 3 So we can do the following, \[a \sqrt 3\] \[a = \frac{ 4 \sqrt 3}{ 2 }\] \[(\frac{ 4 \sqrt 3 }{ 2}) \sqrt 3\] Basically substituting a in. Then we simplify \[\frac{ 4(3) }{2 } = \frac{ 12 }{ 2 } = 6\]

Remember that \[\sqrt x \times \sqrt x = x\]

Shadow:

It seems that your main error though for 10 was putting the wrong values for the sides. You had x for the hypotenuse, 2x for the angle opposite to 60, and x sqrt 3for the angle opposite to 30.

In actuality it's hypotenuse - 2x 60 - x sqrt 3 30 - x

Juila12001:

so for 10 is th e answer 6 or (4 square root 3 over 2) square rooted by 3

Shadow:

Correct, for x. \[y = \frac{ 4 \sqrt 3 }{ 2 }\]

Juila12001:

then where did the 6 come from

6 months ago
Shadow:

\[6 = (\frac{ 4 \sqrt 3 }{ 2 }) \sqrt 3\]

Shadow:

Do you understand?

6 months ago
Juila12001:

oh yea i was just confused bc i thought u meant 6 was the answer

6 months ago
Juila12001:

wait so the answer is 6= (4 square 3 over 2) square ?

6 months ago
Shadow:

\[x = (\frac{ 4 \sqrt 3 }{ 2 }) \sqrt 3\] \[y = \frac{ 4 \sqrt 3 }{ 2 }\]

Shadow:

x also equals 6

6 months ago
Shadow:

6 is better though, since it's simplified.

6 months ago
Juila12001:

so x is 6?

6 months ago
Shadow:

yus

Juila12001:

so u don't have to write 6= (4 square 3 over 2) square ?

6 months ago
Shadow:

nope

Shadow:

All good?

Or is there another one you need help with?

can check if 8 is correct

Shadow:

This means: |dw:1521605198277:dw|

Shadow:

So we can do \[7 = x \sqrt 3\] \[\frac{ 7 }{ \sqrt 3} = x\] \[\frac{ \sqrt 3 }{ \sqrt 3 } \times (\frac{ 7 }{ \sqrt 3 }) = x\] \[\frac{ 7 \sqrt 3 }{ 3} = x\]

6 months ago
Shadow:

\[x = b = \frac{ 7 \sqrt 3 }{ 3 }\]

6 months ago
Shadow:

\[2x = a = 2(\frac{ 7 \sqrt 3 }{ 3 })\]

6 months ago
Shadow:

\[a = \frac{ 14 \sqrt 3 }{ 3}\]

thank you

Shadow:

No problem. All done?

6 months ago
Juila12001:

yes

6 months ago
Shadow:

Haha, it seems you already had those answers. But you wrote the values wrong for each side. Don't know how that happened xD

Juila12001:

no

|dw:1521605615941:dw| That's what you had on your paper
