Homework help: Find the exact values of r and x given A = 21 degrees, B = 69 degrees, and y = 6.?
r = ?
x = ?
(also, why is r not equal to 16.74 and x equal to 15.63, I don't quite understand what I am doing wrong)

exact value of r= 6/sin21°
exact value of x= 6tan69°

Value of x: 6/tan(21) = 15.63053439 or 15.63 rounded to two decimal places
Value of r: 15.63053439/sin(69) = 16.74256921 or 16.74 rounded to two decimal places.
Alternatively once two sides are known the third side can be found by using Pythagoras' theorem for a right angle triangle.
