(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In Triangle ABC, tan A=3/4, tan B=1, and a=10. Find what b equals.

2. Relevant equations

You can use sina/A=sinb/B

3. The attempt at a solution

This problem is really easy using inv tangent functions and what not, but my teacher said we should be able to get it without a calculator.

Doing it with a calculator b will turn out to be 11.8. But if anyone is able to provide a detailed way to get the problem without using a calculator, that would be great.

Thanks
