Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use pythagorean theorem to get your third side, then use triangular trig ratios to get the trig functions... like sin(theta)=opp/hyp, cos(theta)=adj/hyp, etc...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is a nice little short cut too... once you find sin, cos, and tan... csc, sec, and cot are the reciprocals.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@EulerGroupie is it A then??? the first choice?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is not what I got. What did you get for the missing side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1eek!\[c ^{2}=a ^{2}+b ^{2}\]where c is the hypotenuse. You have c and a... solve for b\[b=\sqrt{c ^{2}a ^{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It comes out nice... not irrational. What do you get for the missing side now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, all of those trig functions have angle A in them... so you are looking at the triangle from that corner. If that's the case, then 9 is your adjacent side, 12 is your opposite side, and 15 is the hypotenuse. So what is sin A=opp/hyp?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes! Now cos A=adj/hyp... which is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not what I got. adj=9, hyp=15...
