#### Answer

$8.9$

#### Work Step by Step

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 $x$:
$x \approx 8.9$
