    I 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

    first of all we need to use cosine since were dealing with adjacent/hypotenuse

    what we first want to do tho is use tangent to find the length of the hypotenuse

    actually for the hypotenuse we could do a^2=b^2=c^2

    to find the angle you need to find the hypotenuse

    169.78 is the length of the hypotenuse

    the hypotenuse is 170 so we dont need to find it

    sin=opposite leg/ hypotenuse cos=adjacent leg/hypotenuse tan=opposite leg/ adjacent leg

    >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|
