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 always gives me a stupid answer on this calculator...

lol...ugh need to figure that out lol....okay well what did you put in (what trig function) (x) of what / what?

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)

and @Hope_nicole ...32.27?? tan is opposite / adjacent right?

oh vectors are not my thing, my teacher skipped our unit on them :/ sorry!

lol...hmm vectors let me remember physics okay ...you want the xcomponent...and the ycomponent 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 xcomponent (in the x direction) sin is the ycomponent (in the y direction) so 54cos(69) =? 54sin(69) =?

would the 2nd one be A?

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

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so that is a compass....the line we have....looks like it is between which 2 directions?

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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?
 one year ago

johnweldon1993Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
see what i mean by that? dw:1363207479263:dw it is inbetween those 2 areas right? that's inbetween N and W which is?

exactly :) so...what would be your answer?
