Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you consider triangle ABC, you can see that sinx, which is the opposite side of the triangle divided by the hypotenuse, is 5/10 = 1/2. If you were to now look at the other triangle, what trig function of angle y would give you 1/2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am really confused on where tan cos and sin are on a triangle so could you explain that? @concentrationalizing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sin, cos, tan etc are all in reference to the angle you wish to look at. Im on mobile, so i cant really draw anything. And yeah, astro drew it up, lol. But yeah, when considering angle x, 5 is the side opposite that angle and 10 represents the hypotenuse, the longest side of that triangle. So yhe trig function which uses the opposite and hypotenuse sides is sine, which is why i made thw claim sinx = 5/10 = 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In the end, youre now using astro's diagram as an example to help you know which trig function is needed for the 2nd triangle. We want some trig function of y to equal 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To help quell the confusion, try finding the lengths of the third side for each right triangle using pythagorean theorem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont know how to find a side using pathagean thereom. My lessons are terrible thats why I do not understand this at all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you've never used \(a^2 + b^2 = c^2\) to solve a right triangle?
