Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nope, try again... adjacent means the side next to the angle, NOT including the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2see how "opposite" is on the opposite side of the triangle? see how "adjacent" is next to A but NOT the hypotenuse? see how the hypotenuse is the longest side? so, if cos(A) = adjacent/hypotenus, what is cos(A)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, keep trying... cos(A) = adjacent/hypotenuse what is the adjacent side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2AB is opposite to C and AC is adjacent to C, right? we know that tan(C) = opposite/adjacent, so tan(C) = 4/9 solve for C
