    Sin = Opposite/Hypotenuse Cos = Adjacent/Hypotenuse Tan = Opposite/Adjacent

    I know that but I'm not sure I know x=opposite and 50 is adj

    so if you have 65.36 centimeters, rounding to 65.4 isn't rounding to the nearest centimeter, that would be millimeter.

    well if you have 66.74 centimeters that means you have 66 WHOLE centimeters and .74 of a centimeter correct?

  41. tukajo

    so why would you round to 66.7 centimeters? You would still have 66 centimeters and .7 of a centimeter

    Instead, you round to the next WHOLE centimeter which is 67, make sense?

    because of third digit is higher than 5 it raises the number right.

    so round these to the nearest centimeter for me: 55.34 = ? 57.49 = ? 73.50 = ? 110.2 = ?
