I totally don't understand part c of question 6
finding AC

i think that we can use sine rule here like that
9/sin2.04 =ac/sin 0.7 { ( 0.7 + pi/2 )-pi=0.7 radian} ( is that right way)
and i got 3.09.....

but in mark scheme, they use tan 0.7=ac/9

is my method is valid

OA is perpendicular to AC - there's a 90° angle. Hence you only need to use sin/cos/tan, not sine or cosine rule (you use this when there isn't a 90° angle).

What seems to be your problem?

Do you not understand Pythagoras?

It's a right angled triangle... you don't need to use the sine rule...... you only need to use basic trigonometry...

BUT if you insist on doing so, then to find length you need to do which gives

Where's the confusion? The text says only use sin/cos/tan if there's a 90 degree angle.

For the question in OP, , rearrange for opposite. This is a GCSE topic buddy.

What you have highlighted does not refer to the sine rule which is

nor the cosine rule which is

i am just try to clear my confusion.the markscheme said that you can't use sine and cosine in right angle triangle when 90 degree angle is present.............while book says its better
You're confusing sine/cosine/tangent, which are functions, with the "sine rule" and "cosine rule", which are equations. They're not the same at all.

OK I understand

one thing still confuses me that why you use pi/2 -0.7

why we don't use pi -( pi/2 +0.7 )
