Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which trig function uses the next.to (adjacent) and hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2tangent never looks at the hypotenuse; tan = over/nextto whats you next best one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2might help to write out the functions :) just as a review

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cosine is the winner !! now, cosine = next.to/ hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2with what is given that leaves us: cos(24) = 11/x can you solve for x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0manually?? or can i use a calculator?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2youll need a calculator or table to determine cos(24) but just the setup would be useful. How would we move this equation around to solve for x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have NO CLUE, but the calculator is telling me 12.04

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cos(24) = 11/x x = 11/cos(24) and yes, abt 12.04 is what i get as well http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=11%2Fcos%2824%29

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the value of w to the nearest degree? Diagram (1 point) 25° 35° 40° 45° dw:1361202248583:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the idea is to find v in order to find w, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If this isn't quick you don't have to help, I don't want to waste your time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2itll be quick enough, go ahead and write out the sin cos tan function for me so we can reference them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin = Opposite/Hyp. cos = adjacent/ Hyp. tan= opposite/adjacent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in my mind, over is the same as opposite :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, would you agree that the sine function works best for us on this one?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sin(65) = v/15 ; v = 15 sin(65) sin(w) = v/21, replacing the value of v we get sin(w) = 15 sin(65)/21 this make sense so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, I think i got it from here, Thanks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good :) keep in mind that to find w we need to do an inverse sin operation
