$\tan \theta=opposite/adjacent$ 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.
