Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sine, cosine, and tangent of an angle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok. Look at the triangle in your problem. You (or the scientists) know 2 things and there is one thing you don't know (but want to).. an unknown side each of SOH CAH TOA use 3 things (angle and two sides) so the idea is to pick one of the 3 that use the same 3 things that your problem uses.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in other words, you want to know AB, and you do know side y, and angle x put your self at angle x, and label the sides AB and y as opposite and adjancent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea the adajat is BC and the opposite is A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2A is a point, so I would say side AB or give the side a "name" like z

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which of the 3 uses the opposite side and the adjacent side ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0id say opposite would be BA? and the adjacent would be BC

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, and because they named BC "y" , you could call BC "y"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which of SOH CAH TOA should we use ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We would use cah?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we want the one that has opposite (an O) and adjacent (an A) cah has Adjacent and Hypotenuse

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, and TOA is short for tan(angle) = opposite/adjacent the angle is called "x' the opposite is side AB the adjacent is side BC , but they say its length is y, so we will use y \[ \tan x = \frac{AB}{y} \]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you know algebra, then you would "solve for AB" by multiplying both sides by y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, and yea ik algerbra

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you should get y tan x = AB or AB = y tan x which means, to find the distance from earth to the shooting star multiply t times tangent of x
