sin P = opposite / hypotenuse = 8 /17 tan P = opposite / adjacent (PS) = 8 / PS you can find length of PS by pythagoras theorem  can you do that?

ok pythGoras theorem is for right angled trianlge which we/ve got here longest side squared = PR^2 = PS^2 + RS^2 plug in values: 17^2 = PS^2 + 8^2 so PS^2 = 17^2  8^2 = 289 64 = 225 PS = sqrt(225) = 15 ok so tan P = 8/15
