\[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\]

first apply Pythagorean theorem to find 3rd side

8/17 ?? @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
tan = opposite over adjacent so nope 17 is a hypotenuse
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
hypotenuse is the longest side |dw:1432869486567:dw|

  • Nnesha
you have to use Pythagorean theorem to find 3rd side

x/8?? @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
nope that's an angle you have to find the length of adjacent side do you know the Pythagorean theorem ?

a^2+b^2=c^2?? @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right plug in 2 sides of right triangle and find 3rd side :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 8^2+17^2=x^2?? @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
C is the longest side of right triangle which is hypotenuse so replace C by 17

OH. okay so 64+x^2=289 -64 -64 x^2=225 x=15 @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yep that's right
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
so tan X = opposite over adjacent =

8/15?? @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yep
