$\tan \theta=opposite/adjacent$ 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.

3. PatrickJordon

can you show

4. j814wong

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