    same thing here :) we have an angle...and we have sides adjacent to...and opposite of that angle...what trig function uses adjacent and opposite ?

    it should be around 32.27 you would use tangent for this one.

    Thanks @Hope_nicole could you guys help out with this one? . Describe the vector as an ordered pair. Round the coordinates to the nearest tenth. The figure is not drawn to scale. (1 point) (19.4, 50.4) (50.4, 19.4) (19.4, 19.4) (50.4, 50.4)

    lol...hmm vectors let me remember physics okay ...you want the x-component...and the y-component to do this you take the magnitude (the length of the line) and multiply it by either cos(angle) or sin (angle) cos is the x-component (in the x direction) sin is the y-component (in the y direction) so 54cos(69) =? 54sin(69) =?

    sorry about the late reply...alright 54cos(69) = 19.35 54sin(69) = 50.41 lol you must HATE that calculator

    correct :)...because like i said...cos is in the x direction...(a.k.a your x value) and sin is in the y direction (your y value) so since a coordinate looks like (x,y) you use the cos answer , sin answer so yes...A :)

    Use compass directions to describe the direction of the vector. (1 point) 41 west of north 41 east of south 41 west of south 41 east of north

    |dw:1363207318614:dw| that is our line and we have put it on our compass.. so. N=north W=west S=south E=east right? so since the line goes inbetween N and W right? so what 2 directions?
