sin of an angle  =  length of side opposite that angle / length of hypotenuse

 

So in this case...

 

sin 53.1°  =  4 / r       Multiply both sides of the equation by  r .

 

r sin 53.1°  =  4         Divide both sides of the equation by  sin 53.1°

 

r  =  4 / sin 53.1°       Plug this into a calculator to get...

 

r  ≈  5
