    Cos(x) = Adjacent side / Hypotenuse (x) will be your angle.

    For (d) Sin (x) = Opposite Side / Hypotenuse

    do I do Adjacent side divided by Hypotenuse to get x? And Opposite Side divided by Hypotenuse to get x?

    To do (c) You will do the following 1. Make sure your calculator is set for degrees. 2. Press 2nd then Cos 3. Enter the opposite side divided by the Hypotenuse ( 6/12) 4. Press Enter What do you get?

    No...that is incorrect. Is you calculator set on degrees?

    The answer you should end up with is 60 degrees. Not knowing what your calculator is i cannot help you any further. The steps above are the correct way to solve.

    @Babynini I did whatever he said on the calculator an it never gave me 60 so I can't really do either problems if the method isn't correct

    Cos x = adj/hyp = 1/2 as above on the calculator put 1 divided by 2 = inverse Cos and it displays 60 so x = 60 degrees

    @triciaal I don't really have a degrees calculator and the one with the option of degrees doesn't EVER work and give me 60
