use SOHCAHTOA

4. anonymous

Do you know how to use that?

5. anonymous

yes

6. anonymous

Alright if you use sohcahtoa you can figure out the x and y that is needed for your answer! =)

$\cos 35 degree=\frac{ 2 }{ x }$

8. anonymous

i just don't where to go from there?

cos(35) = 2/x... all you gotta do is plug in cos35 into your calculator (if you can use it that is) then you will get a number... so it look like... # = 2/x then just solve for your x

.

does that make sense?

12. anonymous

$\cos(35°)=\frac 2x$ $x=\frac 2{\cos(35°)}$
