1) Using the law of cosines, we have: $$c^2 = 6^2 + {7\sqrt2}^2 -2\times 6 \times 7 \sqrt 2 \cos 45$$

Simplifying, we have $$c^2 = 36 + 98 - 84 \sqrt 2 \times { \sqrt 2 \over 2}$$, which simplifies to: $$c^2 = 50$$

Can you take it from here?

5) Using the Pythagorean Theorem on $$\triangle ADC$$, we find that $$\overline{AD} = 8$$

Now, applying the Pythagorean Theorem on $$\triangle ADB$$, we find that $$\overline{AB} = 17$$.

We also know that $$\sin = {\text{opposite} \over \text{hypotenuse}}$$, which in this case, is $${\overline{AD}} \over {\overline{AB}}$$.

Can you take it from here?
