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?

now in the problem let's take this on triangle at time, let's start with first one

- anonymous

let'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.

yes sorry my connection sucks so it takes forever to reply

- anonymous

okay 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

- anonymous

so should i use the sine table for this problem?

- anonymous

yes sin would be a good choice in this case.

- anonymous

k i have a chart...

- anonymous

so should i look for the tan numbers for each other numbers given

- anonymous

you can but in keep in mind what you are being asked for here.

- anonymous

do the top first triangle only, than we will worry about the bottom within this problem

- anonymous

i forgot about the angle.. that kinda looks like c = a * b

- anonymous

because we similar triangle here what do we know already about this?

- anonymous

the c=a times b is right

- anonymous

did you get it?

- anonymous

i hate this computer -.- yes i got it thanks :)
