A building lot in a city is shaped as a 30° -60° -90° triangle. The side opposite the 30° angle measures 41 feet. a. Find the length of the side of the lot opposite the 60° angle. b. Find the length of the hypotenuse of the triangular lot. c. Find the sine, cosine, and tangent of the 30° angle in the lot. Write your answers as decimals rounded to four decimal places.

    rations of a 30 - 60- 90 right triangle are \(1:\sqrt{3}:2\) for short side: long side : hypotenuse

    In this special triangle, the side opposite the 30 degree angle is 1/2 the hypotenuse. The long leg is the short leg multiplied by sqrt3

    Now use the definitions of the trig functions to find sine, cosine, and tangent of the 30 degree angle.
