Question of The Day12-08-2021

In △ ABC, ∠A = 60⁰, ∠B = 75⁰ and AB =$$2 \sqrt 6$$ cm. Find the length of side BC.

Correct Answer : c ) 6 cm

Explanation :

According to the question

In △ ABC, ∠A = 60⁰ , ∠B = 75⁰ and AB = $$2 \sqrt 6$$ cm

In △ ABC (using angle sum property of the triangle)

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180⁰

60⁰ + 75 + ∠C = 180⁰

⇒ ∠C = 45⁰

We know that, Using Lami’s theorem

$${sin \ A \over a}={sin \ B \over b}={sin \ C \over c}$$

Substitute the values

$${sin \ 60⁰ \over BC}={sin \ 45⁰ \over 2 \sqrt 6}$$

$$BC={2 \sqrt 6*{sin \ 60⁰ \over sin\ 45⁰}}$$

$$BC=2 \sqrt6*{{\sqrt3 \over 2}\over {1 \over \sqrt2}}$$

$$BC={{2 \sqrt6* \sqrt3* \sqrt2 } \over 2}$$

⇒ BC = 6 cm

Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
