• This Question is Closed
1. lilyan4

yes

2. tlhoward123

How would I do this

3. _irawk_

can you give an example of triangle?

4. tlhoward123

That is the problem, it doesn't give an example. Just that question

5. _irawk_

you can use trigonometric ratios to find the angles...

6. lgbasallote

^i think that will only work on right triangles....

7. _irawk_

ya but he said it was a right triangle

8. tlhoward123

It is a right triangle.

9. lgbasallote

good point

10. _irawk_

do u know the trigonometric ratios? sine cosine tangent?

11. tlhoward123

yes a little

12. _irawk_

that's what you can use

13. lilyan4

one angle is 80 degrees and 2 you don't know it equals 180 degrees solve

14. _irawk_

^that doesn't make sense

15. tlhoward123

Im glad you said that because I was really getting confused

16. _irawk_

So how much do you know about the trig ratios?

17. tlhoward123

I know a little. Math is really not my best subject and I am taking it online for grade forgiveness now.

18. _irawk_

Do you know how to use them?

19. tlhoward123

A little

20. _irawk_

Can you use them at all?

21. tlhoward123

Yes
