Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my book says 5 radical 23 over 23.... i solve for my triangle taking sine(x)= radical 2 over 5 and find the third side. But from here, i dont know how to find secant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1secant = hyp/adj ; its just the inverse of cosine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, i just dont understand how the answer is 5 radical 23 over 23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i dont understand how to get to that part. i just got my triangle and then i dont know where to go from there using secant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you know 2 sides of a right triangle you can find the thirs by the pythagoreum thrm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(sqrt(2))^2 + base^2 = (5)^2 2 + base^2 = 25 base^2 = 252 base^2 = 23 base = sqrt(23)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1secant(A) = hyp/base sec = 5/sqrt(23)
