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

    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

    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.

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