Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2With respect to angle x, the side labelled 12 is the 'adjacent side the side labelled 13 is the hypotenuse you can use sin, cos or tan to solve questions lik ethis which of those 3 options uses adjacent/hypotenuse?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so write cos x = adj /hyp and put in the numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no it's adjacent /hyp the side labelled 12 is the 'adjacent side the side labelled 13 is the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know I have to do 13 cos x =12 where do I go now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no you have cos x = 12/13 so work out 12/13 then that number is the value of cos (x) your calculator then will have 'inverse cos' or ' arc cos' or 'cos ^1' that function is the opposite of finding the cos of an angle  it fids the angle whose cos is 12/13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry this is the hardest part of geometry for me. I have cos (x) = .923076923076923 so just divide that by arc cos and im done?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no  it is not a division the arc cos is a function once you have the number then press arcos DONT forget to round to nearest 100th as asked by question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2suppose oyu have a number 60on your calculator when you press the cos button it works out cos 60 (and show 0.5 = cos 60) if you then press ARC cos it will tell you then angle whose cos is 0.5 i.e. 60 arc cos or cos^1 is the OPPOSITE of finding the cos  it tells oyu the ANGLE
