# HELP Maths Questions!! watch

1. These questions are so confusing anyone can guide me through them.

If your talking about the triangle say Question 1
If your talking about the other one say Question 2

2. question 1:

use pythagorous theorem to find length AD
use cosine rule to fine angle DBA
now you know angle BAC and ABC and ACB and a side (13cm) you can use sine rule

Mate it's right angles, you can get by without the cosine rule.

Okay. Label angle as

We know that as CB is the hypoteneuse and 13 is the adjacent side to the angle theta.

Means that

How do we find theta? Use trigonometry inside the smaller triangle to find it.

what do you mean by label cba as 0?

what do you mean by label cba as 0?
The angle made by the lines CB (DB works too) and BA. Label it and attempt to find what it is using the smaller triangle.

If you don't understand what's being explained to you, then you don't properly understand the topic.
