Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is supposed to be Tan(27)= 34/x. I can go into more detail if you would like on why it is like that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First, do you have a calculator that will let you solve for it?

marihelenh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have to solve for x, so multiply both side by x. That should leave you with Tan(27) x = 34

marihelenh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Divide both sides by Tan(27). You will get x= 34/Tan(27)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How did you enter it into your calculator? You should be able to do 34/tan(27) and get the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes so 57.6 over 33.8

marihelenh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is the other way around. 33.8/57.6 The adjacent side goes over the hypotenuse.

aizhalee

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so 33.8 divided by 57.6

marihelenh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. Divide it first. You will get something along the lines of .5868... After that, press 2ND on your calculator, then COS, then 2ND again, and the press the () button at the bottom. It will put in your previous answer and should give you the correct answer for the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I couldn't get it on the computer calculator, but if you go to web2.0calc.com/ you should be able to use a scientific calculator that will let you do the 2ND function. If you get there, just follow the same steps as before.
