Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which part the first blank is asking which function to use to find the height

Claire4christ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0part 1 i think its cosine

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if yo are using cos(50)=x/90

Claire4christ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that's what i did

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then the next part is asking for the reverse how do you find the cosine function with the two sides

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its asking this this represents the value created when length _____ is divided by ______ feet.

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the angle is the value when you divide the sides accordingly

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The cosine of a 50° angle is 57.9 is this right for the second part

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all the trig functions are is a relationship between the lengths of sides if you divide two known sides and take that data it represents and angle.

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so like radar has said the cosine of 50 is .6428 so the sides divided are also .6428

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.157.8 is the height of the tower because you multiplied the hypotenuse by the cosine to find x

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it will be .6428x.6428

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what happens if you divide the side x by the side of 90

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0adjacemt side is x right and hypotenusel is 90

Claire4christ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's what i got

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1roughly the same as the cosine for 50 degrees

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is what we have so far

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be 57.9

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so x side is 57.9

radar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The cosine of a 50° angle is .6422 right

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first question only wanted to know that you would use the cosine function to find x

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the next blank wants you to input the cosine of 50 which you have .6422

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes if you type in cos50 in your calculator that is what you get

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this represents the value created when length ____ is divided by ____ feet.

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what about this one

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you look at the funtion you know that it is x divided by the 90 feet if you divide the value you got for x by 90 it is about the same as cos 50

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when length is 50 is divided by x feet right

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no 50 is the angle you want the height of the tower divided by the lenght of the decline which is 90

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when length is 90 divided by x feet

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1see how it is lenght x divided by 90 feet

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i see now x/90

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is a balanced equation if you divide that you get the same value as you did when you input cos of 50 into your calculator

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the angle of declination changed to 60°, the cosine would be 0.5; now the length of x would be ________ feet.

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use the same equation with the cos of 60 instead

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its gonna be cos(60)=x/90

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\cos(60^{0})=\frac{ x }{ 90ft }\]

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now you need to solve for x

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be 45

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is two ways to solve for this but you are suppose to use a trig function

Claire4christ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the angle of declination changed to 60°, the angle of inclination would be _____ degrees.

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no it wants to know the angle of inclination which is the angle from the bottom

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the angel theta is unknown do you know which trig function to use to solve it

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so theta is 60 degrees right

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you look at the trig functions there are sin=opposite / hypotenuse cos which we covered and tangent = opposite / adjacent

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you want to use the sine function

radar
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0From reading the problem, I believe you could solve simply from the fact you are working with a right triangle, and the sum of the two acute angles equals 90 degrees.

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so apposite side is 45 right

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we trying to find the bottom right

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1on your calculator you push the 2nd button then 45/90

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you need the inverse sine of .5 which is 2nd sin .5

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you using a ti calculator

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you need to look for \[\sin ^{1}\]

Claire4christ
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you press sin ^1

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes what do you get when you put that in

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1.5 is what you get when you do the division without the sine function I am not sure what your calculator is doing

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when you get the true inverse sine you will get 30 degrees

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is correct know do you notice that the 30 you got and the 60 degree other angle add up to 90 and the right angle is also 90 every triangle has 180 degrees in it so you could have just found the missing amount from 180
