This has a real world application!! .. You did not specify whether the 8 ft side was opposite or adjacent to the 22 deg angle, so you have two different solutions. .. side opposite 22 deg angle=8 ft other acute angle=90-22=68 deg let x=other leg opposite the 68 deg angle let h=hypotenuse (third side) sin 22/8=sin 68/x x=8 sin 68/sin 22=19.8 8/h=sin 22 h=8/sin 22=21.36 ans: sides are 8 ft,19.8 ft and 21.36 ft .. side opposite 68 deg angle=8 ft other acute angle=90-68=22 deg let x=other leg opposite the 22 deg angle let h=hypotenuse (third side) sin 22/x=sin 68/8 x=8 sin 22/sin 68=3.23 8/h=sin 68 h=8/sin68=8.62 ans: sides are 8 ft,3.23 ft and 8.62 ft ..
