Answer by stanbon(60772)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I really need to answer these trigonometry problems. 1. The measure of two of the angles of a triangle are 50 degrees and 55 degrees. If its longest side measures 17 cm, find the perimeter of the triangle. ---- The measure of the third angle is 180-(50+55) = 75 degrees ---- Find the length of the side opposite the 50 degree angle. Use the Law of Sines: a/sin(50) = 17/sin(75) --- a = sin(50)[17/sin(75)] ---- a = 13.48 ================== Find the length of the side opposite the 55 degree angle. Use the Law of Sines: b/sin(55) = [17/sin(75)] b = sin(55)[17/sin(75)] b = 14.42 ======================= Perimeter: 17 + 13.48 + 14.42 =================================== 2. The vertex angle of an isosceles triangle is 72 degrees and each of the equal sides is 10 cm. Find the perimeter and area of the triangle. --- Use the Law of Sines as in problem #1. =================================== 3. The diameter of a circle C is 34 cm. Two radii AC and BC form the angle of 96 degrees. Find the length of the cord AB. --- Perimeter = (pi)d = 34pi --- arc = (96/360)(34pi) = 28.48...cm Cheers, Stan H.
