Could someone explain #27 from practice test 5 to me? I understand the concept of the law of sines, but don't understand why we are saying BC = 0.3 x 200. Where did 200 come from?

Ohhhhhhhh!!! I completely forgot that I knew what the value of sin(30) was lol. I was like... how did they know sin(30)= 0.5? And then it hit me lol. Thank you so much!!
