SOH-CAH-TOA |dw:1359045969808:dw| You have the adjacent and hypotenuse, so we use cosine. cos = adj/hyp cos45 = 17/x

cos(45) = 17/x 0.707 = 17/x Multiply both sides by x. 0.707x = 17 Divide both sides by 0.707. x = 17 / 0.707 What do you get?

Oh cool! Thanks @jazy. And I got 24.05?
anonymous

Yeah you're right. (: Actually when I did cos(45) it was actually 0.7071. So 17 divided by 0.7071, rounded would be 24.04.
