is E on the other side of the triangle or does it signify the point of that triangle? If its the point its just a E = 34, which is sin34 = 0.55919. doesn't seem that hard tbh. In fractions.... i wouldn't know.

alright, easier explanation.

My guess is E is the angle, so therefore E = 34 right? just substitute it in.
Sin E =
Sin 34 = 0.55919.

Draw it in paint so its easier to see. Do we know the lengths of the sides?

Go with what Incomplete said. But for future reference, just remember 'soh-cah-toa' if your teacher hasn't already taught you that.

soh: Sin = Opposite (side) over Hypotenuse
cah: Cos = Adjacent (side) over Hypotenuse
toa: Tan = Opposite over Adjacent
