which trig function would you use with the information given?
wouldnt you use cosine?
start out by writing down the 3 basic trig functions for me ...
well there are sine and cosine i know for sure
good, and also tangent. how do we define them in terms of the sides of a triangle? using opposite, adjacent, and hypotenuse ...
tangent and cotangent?
in not sure to be honest
then that is what you need to work on. sin = opp/hyp cos = adj/hyp tan = opp/adj given these 3 basic trig functions, which one uses the information given?
you might wanna use words that you like :) i tend to use over, next.to, and slant becasue they sound less babbley
So this triangle i would use tangent then?
correct tan(a) = over/next.to , lets fill in whats given tan(15) = x/12 how do we move this about to get x all alone?
i have a quetion first. where and how do you get 15?
i have old eyes :) i read the 12 and 35 together and saw 15
oh ok lol so it would be tan(35)=x/12?
yes, then its just a little algebra to solve for x
so then i would multiply 12 and 35 together?
you are on the right track, but lets clarify that alittle 12 * tan(35) = x you need a table or calculator for the tan(35) part
oh ok let me see
so it would be 8.40249045851651735
and rounding to the nearest tenth would be 8.4
ok so that would be x then?
lets see. 12*tan(35) = x 8.4 = x yep, im pretty sure that completes it :)
ok thank you so much would you be able to help me with one more?
prolly not, ive got a class starting soon
oh ok well thank you for your help i appreciate it!
good luck :)
