it is a right triangle, such as this one. On side B is 12. On side C is 12. X is between the two.

Yes!! Without the a

Okayyyy, if you know your triangles, you should know that 5-12-13 is a special triangle like 3-4-5. So we can just replace a with 5. In order to find x, we could do either the sine, cosine, or tangent, your choice since we have all the sides.

Im going to go with tan
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Alright! So tangent is: \(\large \tan\theta=\frac{opposite}{adjacent} \) So for your triangle: |dw:1433442229985:dw| So \(\large \tan x=\frac{5}{12} \) Make sense?

In order to get the angle for x, just take the inverse tangent: \(\large x=\tan^{-1}(5/12)\) Plug that into a calculator and you'll get the angle degree of x :)
