The bigger triangle is a 3:4:5 triangle, but it could be sitting at any angle relative to the (0.2 and x) triangle, so x could be large or small.
But it's a mechanics problem.
Well, if you don't have the hypotenuse, then it can't be solved as it is, because to use trigonometry you need 3 pieces of information and you've only got 1 side and 1 angle.
That's the problem, man! The answer should be 0.75, but I can't see it. I need to know if I can solve it,
I'm probably reading your drawing wrong, but couldn't you use Pythagoras?
