tan y = 5/14 y is the angle whose tangent is 5/14

@welshfella thanks i was using the cotagent ratio but i dot know what to do after that

7. welshfella

there is no need to use the cotangent tan = opposite / adjacent = 5/14

8. anonymous

cotagent is the same think tho, just the reciprocal cot= adj/opp

9. welshfella

yes cot = 1 / tan

10. anonymous

so what do i do after tan(y)= 5/14 ?

11. welshfella

well use your calculator to find angle whose tan = 5/14 5 divided by 14 = 0.3571 so enter tan-1 0.3571 and press exe

one sec

13. welshfella

- though some calculators requre differnt order

14. anonymous

well 5/14 is 0.35714.. @welshfella whats the next step?

15. welshfella

on ur calculator enter tan-1 0.35714 then press exe

16. anonymous

0.33822 so would it be 0.34?
