# Sine Rule Question

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Hey I am doing work on Sine Rule and have come across a question I am stuck on, I have re-arranged the formula to 10Sin43/6 = SinX

When I put this into my calculator I get an error. I guess this is because there are two answers to the question?? How do I find out the answer?? THANKS

No. You got an error because 10sin(43/6) is greater than 1. SinX can only take up values between (and including) -1 and 1. Post the question and let's see otherwise, check it again.

Must be a false question.
5. I must be really confused because I rearranged this too sin43/6 x 10? this results in a number larger than one again

Does the book have any answers at the back concerning that? Let me know if it does.

Can't be. I've just checked x=77 and used the cosine rule to verify the sides. While keeping the 10 side the same, my answer of the other side is 6.963... rather than 6. Answers are wrong by verification. Move onto other questions.
