    no it wasn't because 56 was corresponding, then its angles on a straight line..
    I got 55

    I don't think so because the angle has to be between the two sides (7 &8) for the formula of triangle area to work and x was another angle so you had to do cosine to find another side and then sine rule too before you could get x. Not sure though. xx
    What? I got 80.4 but used cousins twice. Is that all right?

    Wasn't the last question like 1/2 * 7 * 8 Sin(X) = 18


    56Sin(x) = 36

    Sin^-1(36/56) = X

    x = 40

    ???

    I think I did it wrong then.
    I got the same and I thought it's right but apparently not since everyone else got 80.4 or 80.1

    This is correct. I forgot to do the inverse but i shall at least get 3/4marks i think
    This is correct for the angle at B, but the question asked for the angle at A.

    last question-
    find angle bac

    first find angle abc
    18=0.5x7x8xsinabc
    18=28sinabc
    18/28= sinabc =0.642...
    sin-1(0.642...)=abc=40.0052...

    then find length AC
    ac^2=7^2+8^2-3x7x8cos40.00
    ac^2=27.209...
    ac=5.216...

    then find angle bac
    18=0.5 x5.216...x7xsinbac
    18/18.25...=sinbac=0.985...
    sin-1(0.98...)=bac=80.3755...
    =80.4

    you had to find the area, then use the cosine rule then the sine rule to get 80.4
