    it has to do with the arccos of the angle

    The side length is 176 and the degrees is 72 inside the triangle

    then cos(72) = s/176 176 cos(72) = s you justs got to remember your definitions on your trigs

    The question is what is the missing side length based on that information

    i assume it a rt tri?

    make sure your calc is on degrees and not radians; or simply substitute 72 with, 72pi/180

    its 72 degrees

    yes, but calculators can be set to read degrees or radians; 72 degress is NOT 72 radians

    72 degress = 72pi/180 radians

    Ok then that.. how would you solve it? Cause im like they only gave me the angle degrees and a side length and are asking for the other side length

    the point being: the side length is determined by the cosine function cos = side/hypot cos(72) = s/176 ; multiply both sides by 176 176 cos(72) = s

    so what would it be?

    do you know how to use a calculator?

    if not, the wolf will give an approximate value; otherwise, that is the exact value
