How to calculate length of x?
>>
>>7633357
I'll give you a hint. A function is defined as the length of x (per your convention) in units of the radius of the circle, given an angle such as the one you marked as a parameter. The name of that function is cosine.

In other words, the cosine of the angle is the length of x in units of the radius (5 meters in your example).

x/5 = cos(35)

x = 5cos(35)

x = 4.1

>>7633383
you don't know the angle is in the centre of the circle
uncalculable

They have the right idea, they're just skipping the vital step where they change the angle from 35deg to 55deg. But either way works.

5sin(35deg)=5cos(55deg)=2.87

it's a line from the center of the circle to the end of the circle. How is it NOT a radius?

This seems right, idk where these other people are getting sin(35) = x/(x+5)

If you're in high school I don't know what your "teacher" thinking giving this to you. Circular conic section analysis like this requires a year of linear algebra at least.

X is adjacent to the angle, so use cosine.
$cos(35) = x/r$
Therefore,
$x = r\times cos(35)$

Obviously, $r$ is the radius.

You can apply sin law like I was doing. But I don't have much time to solve this, basically x will be >>7633404
>>7633586
Are you a fucking idiot? X is obviously not, it's denoted under the circle as being shorter than the radius. Jesus christ. Spotted the engineering student
>>
>>7639994
Oops, pic related
>>
>>7633357
EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER.

cos(55)=(x)/(x+5)

x=(5/(1-cos(55)))-5

THERE IS NO DEBATE. IF YOU DISAGREE KILL YOURSELF

YOU ARE A FUCKING RETARD

Diagram is fucking retarded. Next time OP write the radius next to the line that actually extends
from the centre of the circle to the edge.
Originally thought the problem specified that the radius is x+5.
So here is the solution to that problem.

(x+5)*sin(35) = x
x = (5*sin(35)/(1-sin(35))
x = 6.725
>>
>>7642690
x>5?
>>
>>7642690
Testing this cool Latex shit.

$(x+5)sin(35) = x$
$x = \frac{5sin(35)}{1-sin(35)}$
$x = 6.725$

>>7642708
Yeah if the radius of the circle is x+5 then x can be greater than 5
depending on how much angle there is.
It's not the problem OP asked though.
