x - √x = 0
how do you solve x - the square root of x = 0 i really need some help with this one.
Oh, of course. Sorry, it's just that I don't hear 'radical' being used to mean square root very often, so I forgot about that definition temporarily.
I suppose your right.
The law of cosines would give this:
Good catch Mathsyperson, I should not rely so heavily on the law of sines. Perhaps an expansion of the law of cosines would be more appropriate? I am wondering if the radical sign would produce two simultaneous solutions like we needed here.
There is a second possible triangle.
I am a little lost. If everything you typed in a) is what you wished type then there is only one triangle possible. Unless there is an equal sign somewhere that shouldn't be there;
Hi...I have a problem that really needs to be solved for my study for the exam please.(it is grade 11 problem.)
