In triangle PRS, angle P = 90 degrees, angle R = 60 degrees, and PR = 12.  SR is extended past R so that QR = 8.  Find the area of triangle QPS.

Hint 1:

the third angle is 30

Hint 2:

In a 30-60-90 triangle, the hypotenuse is twice the length of the side opposite the 30 degree angle.

Hint 3:

In a 30-60-90 triangle, the side opposite the 60 degree angle is \(\sqrt 3\) times the side opposite the 30 degree angle.

you should be able to figure it by now

if not i can finish the problem
