So what is it exactly that I'm supposed to do here ??

saifoo.khan Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
There are three basic ratios. Sin ratio, cos ratio, tan ratio. you have to remember these.. Not them down somewhere.

Now these are the three sides. now it depends upon the question which two ratio you have to use.. you have to judge it by yourself.

saifoo.khan Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Now in your question.. you are given hypotenuse and you have to find the opposite side.. so u will be using sin ratio.

i still don't get it though . like , what #'s do i plug in & where ?? it's so confusing to me!!

Ok, so the basic idea is that if you have a right angle, and You know the second angle, you know the ratio of the two sides. Now all of the trig functions essentially take in an angle, and out put a ratio.

*triangle similarity
 2 years ago

inkyvoyd Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
For triangle similarity, we can prove that two triangles are similar given certain info (SAS, AA, SSS, etc). But if they are similar, then how can we figure out the side lengths they have?
 2 years ago

inkyvoyd Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
The answer is that we use trigonometry. The basic idea of trig is that in a right triangle where we know all the degree measures, we can determine the ratio between the sides.
