 Question 279149: Two streets meet at an angle of 52 degrees. If a triangular lot has frontages of 60 m and 65 m on the two streets, what is the perimeter of the lot? Click here to see answer by Theo(3504)

 Question 279377: What is the exact value of sin^2 pi/6 -2 sin pi/6 cos pi/6 + cos^2 (-pi/6)? The answer I got is 2 + sqrt3/2. Did I do it right. This question is driving me crazy the other answer I got was 2 - sqrt3?? Help please cause I'm obviously doing something wrong. Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 279481: 9 cos^2 theta + 3 cos theta =0, where 90 degrees < theta < 180 degrees, what is the value of theta, correct to the nearest tenth? This is what I did but my answer is wrong cause it's suppose to be in degrees.9 cos^2 theta + 3 cos theta =0 Then I subtracted 3 cos theta from both sides so 9 cos^2 theta= -3 cos theta Then I divided both sides by cos 3 theta so cos theta = -1/3. I don't think I understand how to do the question since it's not in degrees. Any ideas?? Thanks Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 279675: I am extremely confused about a problem I'm working on. I can't seem to get the right answer. A kite flier wondered how high her kite was flying. She used a protractor to measure an angle of 45 degrees from level ground to the kite string. If she used a full 105 yard spool of string, how high, in feet, was the kite? Round the answer to 3 decimal places. (Disregard the string sag and the height of the string reel above the ground.) I know the correct answer is 222.739 ft, but I don't know how that's possible. Every time I try to solve it I get 24.789ft. Please help! Click here to see answer by nerdybill(7011)

 Question 281505: I need to find the exact value of this expression using fundamental identities or the Complementary Angle Theorem. I thought maybe the Complementary Angle Theorem would help but I am not sure how. Thank you for any help. :) By the way, both cosines are squared but when I preview, it does not look like they show up. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57984)

 Question 281579: a stone is thrown vertically upwards at a speed of 24 m/s. its height h meters after t seconds is given approximately by the formula h=24t-5t squared.

 Question 281690: Find all points [r, theta] of intersection r=1 and r= 2sin(theta) Multiple choice: a)[1/2, pi/3] & [1/2, 5pi/3] b) [1/2, pi/6] and [1/2, 5pi/6] c) [1, pi/3] & [1,5pi/3] d) [1, pi/6] and [1,5pi/6] e) None of these I want to eliminate A & B because their r-values are 1/2 instead of 1. If I graph these in Polar mode (in radian mode too), the two graphs form two ellipses. If I trace, I can find intersections at theta = .5236 (pi/6) and 2.618 (5pi/6). So I'm leading toward D as my answer. First, is it okay to use the graphical approach to solving this problem? Second, what is the algebraic approach to solving this problem?
