## Yumira 2 years ago Given the triangle below, what is cot∡B? Right triangle ABC with AC measuring 4 and BC measuring 7 square root of 33 over 4 7 times square root of 33 over 33 square root of 33 over 7 4 times square root of 33 over 33

No /:

do you know how to use the pythagorean theorem to find the missing side of the triangle?

7. Yumira

Lol Nope But my older brother thinks its square root of 33 over 7 is he right ?

8. dpaInc

no.... it's not $$\large \frac{\sqrt{33}}{7}$$ do you know where the $$\large \sqrt{33}$$ came from though?

Nvm My Sister Explained It Thanks Though (:

ok... the sqrt(33) came from the pythagorean theorem: $$\large a^2+4^2=7^2$$ solving that you'll get $$\large a=\sqrt{33}$$ but now the trigonometry part... cotangent is adjacent over opposite... ok.... nvmd..
