I had to take measurements and they are as follows. 45 degress at 32 meters and 7.5 meters from the distance of where I was standing to what i was measuring. How do I set up this equation using sine?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Until I know whether 32 is either your hypotenuse or your y value, I can't help you. ... Okay then, so 32 is your hypotenuse.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically SOH CAH TOA tells you which trig function to use when you are given an angle and two sides. O = Opposite A = Adjacent H = Hypotenuse S = Sine C = Cosine T = Tangent When you're given the Opposite side (in relation to the angle) and the hypotenuse, you use Sine (SOH) The same pattern follows for the rest of SOH CAH TOA
