Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes it's a right triangle find 3rd side of right triangle Pythagorean theorem \[\huge\rm a^2 + b^2 = c^2\] c is the longest side of right triangle which is hypotenuse solve for 3rd side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1433537872991:dw now use this information \[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\] cos = adjacent over hyp tan = opposite over adjacent remember sec = 1/cos
