And  √189  can be simplified as = √[3^3 * 7] = √[9 * 21] =  3√21

There is something odd about the diagram.

$$\underset{\,\,\,\,^{{360^\circ}}}{{sin}}{\left({\mathtt{72}}^\circ\right)} = {\mathtt{0.951\: \!056\: \!516\: \!295}}$$

$${\frac{{\mathtt{6}}}{{\mathtt{15}}}} = {\frac{{\mathtt{2}}}{{\mathtt{5}}}} = {\mathtt{0.4}}$$

!!!

Yeah, Alan......I hadn't noticed that....72°  is definitely not correct.....it would mean that the shortest side would be opposite the intermediate angle....impossible.....!!!
