**Damon**, Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 1:34pmOh well, if you do not like WLS' cool method then

cos T = sqrt(1 - sin^2 T)

6 sqrt(1 -sin^2 T) + 8 sin T = 9

let sin T = x

6 sqrt(1-x^2) + 8 x = 9

6 sqrt (1-x^2) = 9-8x

36 (1-x^2) = 81 - 144x + 64 x^2

36 -36 x^2 = 81 - 144x + 64 x^2

100 x^2 -144 x + 45 = 0

x = [ 144 +/- sqrt (20736 - 18000)]/200

x = [ 144 +/- 52.3 ]/200

x = .981 or .4585

but x is sin T so

T = 78.8 or T = 27.3

sum = 106.1

sin(106.1) = .961
