Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is the height the hypotenuse side is 14 and the angle is 33degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Depending on whether the x is adjacent or opposite of the angle, use either sin or cos. You can set it up something like this: \[\sin 33 = \frac{x}{14}\] And solve for x. Make sure that you use sin or cos, whichever one is appropriate, though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is oposite to 33degrees and hypothenuse is 14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So which is appropriate, sin or cos? Which ratio involves both the opposite and the adjacent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do i press sin then (33 / 14)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiply. But yes, sin then 33 then times 14 would do it, and 14 then times then sin 33 should also work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simpler calculators may require you to do: 33 <sin button> <x button> 14 <=>
