sin θ   =   opposite / hypotenuse

sin 60°   =   JK / 20

20 sin 60°   =   JK

JK   =   10√3

 

cos θ   =   adjacent / hypotenuse

cos 60°   =   JL / 20

20 cos 60°   =   JL

JL   =   10

 

area of JKL   =   (1/2) * JL * JK   =   (1/2) * 10 * 10√3   =   50√3    sq units

cos (60)  =  JL / KL

 

cos (60)  = JL / 20  ⇒   JL   =  20*cos (60)

 

And the area can be found as

 

(1/2) JL * KL * sin (60)   =

 

(1/2) 20* cos (60) * 20 * sin (60)  =

 

(1/2) 20 * (1/2) * 20 * sin (60)  =

 

(1/4)*400 * √3 / 2  =

 

(1/8)*400*√3  =

 

50√3    units^2
