## Geometry: Common Core (15th Edition)

$8.9$
In this exercise, we are asked to find the sine of $34^{\circ}$ in the form of a ratio. sin $34^{\circ}$ = $\frac{5}{x}$ Multiply both sides by $x$: sin $34^{\circ}(x)$ = $5$ Divide both sides by sin $34^{\circ}(x)$: $x = \frac{5}{sin 34^{\circ}}$ Evaluate to solve for $x$: $x \approx 8.9$
