Correct answer: 27 . 6845 cm. Explanation: Basic Concepts: The Law of Cosines states c 2 = a 2 + b 2- 2 ab cos C The Law of Sines states sin A a = sin C c Solution a c b A C We are looking for the side opposite the given angle so c = p a 2 + b 2- 2 ab cos C 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points b) What is angle opposite the side 11 . 2 cm? Correct answer: 20 . 9286 . Explanation: sin A a = sin C c A = arcsin a sin C c keywords: 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A high fountain of water is located at the center of a circular pool as in the figure. A student walks around the pool and estimates its circumference to be 69 . 4 m.
