Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have an opposite leg of a right triangle that is 40mm long, I have an adjacent leg of 165mm what is the measure of angle a which is the angle in between the hypotenuse and the adjacent leg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i wont give u the answer but i will help you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok that is what I wanted

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first of all we need to use cosine since were dealing with adjacent/hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what we first want to do tho is use tangent to find the length of the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually for the hypotenuse we could do a^2=b^2=c^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the length is about 170

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But he need to find the angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find the angle you need to find the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1169.78 is the length of the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the hypotenuse is 170 so we dont need to find it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know what is Trigonometric Ratios

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright then from there is pretty simple

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you know Trigonometric Ratios formula you can find very easy the angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but what are the steps i forgot

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay i will post the formulas and you will find wich one you need to use

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

begzat

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0know which one you need to use

loser0123456
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I need to use cosine

begzat

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no because you know opposite and adjacent leg

loser0123456

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i also know hypotenuse it is 170

begzat

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but on the question it said that you know opp. and adj.

begzat

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can use tan if you want

loser0123456

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I forgot to post the hypotenuse

begzat

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so you can use all

loser0123456

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but which one helps me find my angle

begzat

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can use tan=opp./adjacent leg

loser0123456

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well can you help me with the steps for cos

Directrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0>well can you help me with the steps for cos The cosine of an acute angle of a right triangle is the ratio of the length of the leg adjacent to the hypotenuse to the hypotenuse length. cos(A) = 165/169.78 cos(A) = 0.9718459 approx A = ? dw:1362220656246:dw
