    \[\tan \theta=opposite/adjacent\] You know that the side adjacent to the angle of 50 degrees is 160 units long so plug that in and solve for the opposite value.

    \[\tan \theta = opposite/adjacent\] \[\tan 50 = opposite/160\] \[(\tan50)(160)=opposite\] Plug that into the calculator to solve for the opposite value.
