So which Trig function should we use? Remember Sin=opposite/hypotenuse cos=adjacent/hypotenuse tan=opposite/adjacent
cos?

Other answers:

well x is opposite our angle and we know the hypotenuse...
sin
Exactly. Any guess as to how to setup the problem from there? sin(angle)=opp/hyp
sin(35)=x/4.1
BOOM! You got this! haha now just isolate x by multiplying both sides by what?
x/1
Let's multiply both sides by 4.1 and see what happens.
4.1*sin(35)=x
That's all there is to it. Trig isn't so bad, is it? ;)
is that the final answer or is there more simplifying
That's it. Remember though if you're asked to give an actual number instead of 4.1*cos(35) plug it in to your calculator.
thank you so much
Yeah, no worries! Best of luck. :)
