Hello Guest!

 

\(a^2=b^2+c^2-2bc\ cosA\\ {\color{blue}cosA}=\dfrac{b^2+c^2-a^2}{2bc}=\dfrac{4\cdot 10+11^2-9^2}{2\cdot 11\cdot 2\cdot \sqrt{10}}=\dfrac{80}{44\cdot \sqrt 10}=\color{blue}\dfrac{20}{11\cdot \sqrt{10} }\)

\(sinA=\sqrt{1-cos^2A}=\sqrt{1-\dfrac{400}{121\cdot 10}}=\sqrt{\dfrac{81}{121}}\\ \color{blue}sinA= \dfrac{9}{11}=0.\overline{18}\)
