No worries |dw:1327035521192:dw| \[cos \theta=\frac{A}{H}\]\[sin \theta=\frac{O}{H}\] \[tan \theta=\frac{O}{A}\] Which one do we have enough information to use?

Not tan. We know theta and which side do we know, O, H or A?

cos(17) = 18.8/RS RS = 18.8/cos(17)

Perfect. We know adjacent since it is the side that touches the angle. So the trig ratio we'll use is cosine.

BaileyC does this make sense or would you like me to explain it differently?
