Trig help please! DUE TONIGHT!

Even just a push in the right direction is helpful. I got Tan (30)=y/x but how do I find x or y? Thanks!

If you have a 30-60-90 triangle, the sides are 1,2 and root(3), so Tan (30) = 1/sqrt(3)

Note too, that Sqrt(3) is irrational, so there are no whole integers whose ratio will yield this number (which also means there are not whole numbers x and y that will work in your original equation).
