Hey FiestyGeco!


I can only help you with 3, since the pictures won't show. 


For 3, we use \(c^2=a^2+b^2-2ab\cos\gamma\), the law of cosines.


This formula generalizes the Pythagorean Theorem, since \(\cos90ยบ=0\Rightarrow a^2+b^2=c^2\)


We can write: \(CB^2=CA^2+AB^2-2(AC)(AB)-\cos{A}\)


\((4\sqrt3)^2=(4\sqrt2)^2+AB^2-2(4\sqrt2)(AB)-\cos60\\ 48=32+AB^2-8\sqrt2AB-\frac12\\ \)

After solving for AB, you use the same formula to solve for the angle.         


This doesn't look like the best method, does anyone know a less rigid way of doing this?


I hope this helped,
