Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well,\[\tan \theta = {opposite \over adjacent}\]From \(\sin \theta\), we know that "opposite" is 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Also, you must must find the adjacent side through Pythagorean Theorem.\[6^2 + b^2 = 7^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, also recall that\[\cot \theta = {adjacent \over opposite}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[b = \sqrt{7^2  6^2} = \sqrt{13}\]Yay!
