anyway a^2 + (17-a)^2 = 185 a^2 + 289 - 34 a + a^2 = 185 2 a^2 - 34 a + 104 = 0 a^2 -17 a + 52 = 0 (a- 13)(a-4) = 0 a = 4 or 13 so they are 4 and 13 and my initial thought was wrong

**Algebra II**

also in your explanation explain that the cosine curve is 90 degrees or pi/2 radians behind the sine curve if you graph y = sin theta and y = cos theta versus theta
*May 25, 2014*

**Algebra II**

trig identity: sin theta = cos (pi/2-theta) so y = 3 sin (4x-pi) + 4 but from above trig identity y = 3 cos [ pi/2 - (4x-pi) ] + 4 or y = 3 cos (-4x + 3 pi/2) + 4 but cos (- theta) = cos theta so y = 3 cos (4x-3 pi/2) + 4
