Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok do you know what side is not touching angle H (this is the opposite side) what measurement does this side have?

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes the opposite side measurement is 5 now we just need to identify the adjacent side and it's measurement

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the adjacent side is the side touching the angle (that isn't the hyp)

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you just put your opp/adj and you have your tangent ratio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would leave it as just 5/12

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you suppose to round it ?

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh 5/12 is the answer lol

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes we already found the tangent of angle h earlier it look like you were trying to round the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you!(: can u help me with one more?

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought u were telling me to divide the two lol

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry got confused but the answer is 5/12

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well 5/12 is a fraction or a division of 5 by 12 but 5/12 is as pretty as the answer will come for that one since it is a repeating decimal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but anyways what is your other qustion

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that is a right triangle (it has a 90 deg angle there)

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anyways can you identify the sides that are given with respect to the angle in question (that angle being B)

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the words I want you to use are: opposite adjacent hyp

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1435094797116:dw what side is this in the picture?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you are suppose to be looking at the angle B and I'm asking about the side whose measurement is 3

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that side is actually touching the angle in question

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1435094881006:dw now what about the side whose measurement is 9

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so 3 adjacent and opposite 9 and hyp b?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the hyp is the side BC ( the hyp is the side always opposite the 90 deg angle)

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but yes to your other questions

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we are given opp and adj measurements so I suggest using the tangent ratio again

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1435094982296:dw

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1opp is 9 and adj is 3 not the other way around

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1amyways you want to solve that equation above and actually yeah it is pretty easy to find a prettier form for 9/3 we call that 3 tan(B)=3

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you want to solve for B

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so take arctan( ) of both sides

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\tan(B)=3 \implies B=\arctan(3)\]

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how would i solve that on calculator?

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my answer choices are 58, 18, 52, 72

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well sometimes the arctan( ) can be done by pressing shift (or 2nd) and then the tan button

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so put tan(3) then what?

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont have arctan on my calc

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should see arctan( ) above tan on your calculator

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0theres in above tan

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like in maybe a different color

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what kind of calculator do you have?

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea the button says in

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1maybe I can find a picture of your calculator online and tell you how to use it

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says casio fx115ES PLUS

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1according to this calculator you should see arctan( ) above tan( ) they just call it \[\tan^{1}[ F]\] both of these are the inverse functions of tan they are the same function just different notation

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is below the Ln key that you call in

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to access the tan^(1) thing you need to press shift

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh it was ln not in oops

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you did 3 then arctan( ) and you got 79.5?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should do something like this: second tan 3 or it might be the other way on yours 3 second tan

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it tan^1 then 3

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should be getting 71.57 deg

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0weird.. nope i got that number above and i typed it in exactly that way..

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is 72?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea but it is important you figure out your calculator

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you might have to use it on a test

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i typed it in right.

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so when you typed it all in it said this: \\[\tan^{1}(3)\]

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no other things in it

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol that is not suppose to be there

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lol but yep thats what i typed

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok hmmm: I looked up your little support pdf for your calculator it says you should do this to find arctan(3): shift tan ) =

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did that too

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0help please? i believe its 35. A child lies on the ground and looks up at the top of a 17ft tree nearby. The child is 14 ft away from the tree. What is the angle of elevation from the child to the top of the tree? Round to the nearest whole degree.

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah thats really weird

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the value of x to the nearest tenth. 6.0 8.0 10.9 13.3 dw:1435096370432:dw

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and I did get a different answer for that previous one

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you are given the hyp measurement so you can think about using either sin of cos

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let's look at the angle whose measurement is 53 deg

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the side whose measurement is x called? choices: adjacent opposite hyp

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos i believe

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you did what was it?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have gotten arctan(17/14) for the previous one I wonder if you are getting something different again on your calculator for that and for this question dw:1435096613252:dw you can not call this adjacent (it isn't touching the angle that I asked you to look at)

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the child one? opposite sorry

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let's talk about one problem at a time

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we will come back to the child one (because you know it might get confusing )

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1435096741024:dw that one side is always the hyp no matter what angle we decide to look at

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anyways opp/hyp you should think sin function

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only answers i have fot the child one is 55 degrees, 35 degrees, 51 degrees, and 39 degrees.

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sin(53^o)=\frac{x}{10}\]

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its 51 degrees i thought it was either that or 35 degrees and went with 35 oops thank u!

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for the other question do i type sin(53) in?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you need to multiply both sides by 10 to get x by itself

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and yes you can type in sin(53) but you will need to multiply that result by 10

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 7.39631095?

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it be 8.0?

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is almost kinda close to what I got I have 7.986 blah blah

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is pretty darn close to 8 we got to figure out what is going on with your calculator

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what does your calc say when you enter in just sin(53)

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is really weird should be getting 0.7986355100

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but the real answer that comes up on that site link u gave me is showing what u got

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah i dont know whats wrong with this calculator.. maybe thats why ive gotten answers wrong many times on homework

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is 8.0 then but i really dont know what my calc is doing

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i have no double about that

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and your mode is in deg?

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just figured out your problem

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I was able to duplicate your answer for sin(53)

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1change the mode and you fixed your problemd

freckles
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have your mode in grads* we need degrees let's see if I can give instructions  hmmm... you should see mod then deg (and that is what you want but looking it up)

campbell_st

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you want to change to degrees Press shift setup(Mode) then choose 3 Deg

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i just changed my mode.

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yay the answer is right on my calc now. thank you so much !
