At the bank of a river, by measurement,
a = 18 ft.
b = 30 ft.
c = 24 ft.
d = 14 ft.
How long is x? How long is y?
Angle > https://media.glynlyon.com/a_matgeo_2011/5/group123.gif
The answer should be to the nearest tenth or as a fraction.
x = ? ft.
y = ? ft.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now in the problem let's take this on triangle at time, let's start with first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let's do the first triangle, in the first triangle we a right angle which is 90 degrees, now given the info from the problem we can now solve this by thinking about sin, cos , tan here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay no prob. you have all you need to do this problem, notice on the choices give they refer to to the triangles listed on the picture so now what we have to is look at if we use sin,cos or tan in these cases to solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do the top first triangle only, than we will worry about the bottom within this problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i forgot about the angle.. that kinda looks like c = a * b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because we similar triangle here what do we know already about this?
