## NyxTheCatGoddess 2 years ago How do you even begin to figure out the Tangent Ratio of a triangle? This is making my brain explode.

• This Question is Open
1. MJR97

just know Soh Cah Toa S(sign)= opposite/ hypotenuse C(cosign)= adjacent leg/hypotenuse t(tangaent)= opposite/ adjacent

2. MJR97

thats if ur finding the length of a side and not the degrees

3. NyxTheCatGoddess

What is the length of the sides are already there and the question says that I need to find Tan A as a fraction in simplest form? How exactly do I do That? :x

4. MJR97

that means that eventually, you'll find the degrees. So, look at the opposite side of where the angle your trying to find is. that is ur numerator. the adjacent leg is the denominator.

5. NyxTheCatGoddess

How would I turn the product into a decimal, rounded to four decimal places?

6. MJR97

ok so just push the tan button on ur calculator, input ur fraction, hit equal and round.

see ya
