How do you do part b of question 1? I used the sine rule and got 6.36cm (3sf), is that correct?

Any help will be appreciated
2. I'm also doing GCSE and I'm not the best at Maths so I may also be wrong, but I also got 6.36cm.

Hi please could you explain this question to me I really don't get it! Do you use trig or the sine rule?
Thank you!
6. Here's a clue: What does bisect mean? It uses that word in the question.

I got 6.35cm. Obviously I have made a minor calculation error, but our methods must have been similar.

I did tan-1(18/6) to get x. Then bc it's bisecting DBC=45. I then added x and 45 and subtracted it from 180 to get BDC. Used the sine rule to get line BD hope that helps not really good at explanations
