 Question from jogiboy: how can i get the sine theta if the given is 3.14/3

Hi,

The instructions are telling you that the measure of the angle is $\theta = \large \frac{\pi}{3}$ radians, where $\pi$ is approximately $3.14 .$ If you want to express the angle measure in degrees then there are 180 degrees in $\pi$ radians so $\large \frac{\pi}{3}$ radians is $\large \frac{180}{3} =\normalsize 60$ degrees.

I hope this helps,
Penny
