It is given that |BC|=115 feet and |AB|=190 feet We have to find \[\theta=?\]
  • hba
Use the formula that @ujjwal Has provided and solve for the Angle :)
  • hba
@Cortney95 Do you understand,if you are not clear about anything please ask ?
asker is absent @hba
  • hba
Then leave it @ujjwal Until @Cortney95 returns.
I understand thank you so much :)

Sorry had to help family with something. My decimal was1.652173913
  • hba
No problem @Cortney95 ,It is better you show me your working so I can indicate where you go wrong.
  • hba
@Cortney95 You there ?
I divided 190/150 and got that as a decimal since you said earlier that I should divide ab/bc and Ab=190 and Bc=115
  • hba
Look \[\tan \theta=\frac{ AB }{ BC }\] and \[\theta=\tan^{-1} \ (\frac{ AB }{ BC })\]
Ohh
  • hba
@Cortney95 I hope now you get it :)
I do thx
  • hba
Welcome,What answer did you get ?
