    start out by writing down the 3 basic trig functions for me ...

    good, and also tangent. how do we define them in terms of the sides of a triangle? using opposite, adjacent, and hypotenuse ...

    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

    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?

    oh ok lol so it would be tan(35)=x/12?

    yes, then its just a little algebra to solve for x

  20. frogs29 Group Title

    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
