Question:

Given a vector <-3,-4>, find its unit vector.

Jas A.
Answer:

A Unit Vector maintains direction of the original vector, with a magnitude of 1. Begin by solving for the magnitude of the vector given: We are given the vector <-3,-4> magnitude = $​$ \sqrt{(-3)^{2}+(-4)^{2}} $​$ =$​$ \sqrt{9+16} $​$ =$​$ \sqrt{25} $​$ =5 To find the unit vector, make the magnitude of the given vector 1. To do this, we divide the magnitude by itself $​$ \frac{5}{5} $​$=1 Now we must also divide each of the components of the given vector by 5. Answer: <$​$ \frac{-3}{5} $​$,$​$ \frac{-4}{5} $​$>

Question:

Given a triangle ABC, where angle A=62*, angle B=31*, and side length c=4cm, complete the triangle. Summarize your answer in one place at the end. Round your answers to the nearest hundredth.

Jas A.
Answer:

We want to complete the triangle, meaning we want to solve for all missing lengths and angles. Begin by finding the last angle of the triangle: 180*-62*-31*= 87*. Angle C=87*. Using the Law of Sines, set up your proportion to find the remaining side lengths. We will solve for side length a first: $​$ \frac{4cm}{sin(87*)} $​$ = $​$ \frac{a}{sin(62*)} $​$ Multiply both sides by sin(62*) to get a by itself: a = $​$ \frac{4sin(62*)}{sin(87*)} $​$ a = 3.54 cm Repeat these steps using the Law of Sines to solve for side length b. Angle A=62* Angle B=31* Angle C=87* side a=3.54 cm side b=2.06 cm side c=4 cm
