Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2tan(theta) = opposite/adjacent if theta is the 45 degree angle, then the opposite side is x and the adjacent side is 6 tan(45) = x/6 find x and use the pythagorean theorem to solve for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2alternatively, since the angle is 45 degrees, this is a special case where the legs are the same and the hypotenuse = leg*sqrt(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you understand the pythagorean theorem? x^2 + 6^2 = y^2
