    Hi, Ive got this assignment I need to solve, and it's driving me insane!
    I need to find measurements for all the lengths in this picture, all I am provided are whats already on the picture.
    How am I to find for example Length a?(as i have marked):
    edit: I have calculated that length a has an angle to horizontal, or tan V, is equal to 21.8



    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think there is enough information there. Are you sure this is the whole problem?

    It can't be. Based solely on the information presented, the length a is not determined.

    Thanks for your replies

    It is all the information that is provided...

    Maybe my teacher is wrong, I asked whether or not to calculate the whole thing, or just the circle part, and she said the whole thing.

    Thanks anyways, I better move on to the other tasks.
