Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok we know angle A equals angle C since 9045=45 dw:1436475407394:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1436475460289:dw I chose to let them both be 1 and by Pythagorean theorem the hyp is sqrt(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you find sin(A) cos(A) tan(A) csc(A) sec(A) cot(A)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we can also consider other angles too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C is 45 deg tan(45)=opp/adj =1/1=1 so yes 1 is difference from 1/sqrt(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but there is also tan(A) to consider

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is actually the same thing as tan(C)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since both A and C are 45 deg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you also have the reciprocal functions to consider to

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well yes tan(A) also works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but so does sec(A) and csc(A)

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and if you can consider other angles then so does sec(C) and csc(C)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I sent the choices earlier there further up. and I would say tan C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just see a triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan(C) and tan(A) and sec(A) and csc(A) and sec(C) and csc(C) will all work

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like that is none of them are equal to sin(A)

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can also so sin(B) and cos(B) and tan(B) and csc(B) and sec(B) and cot(B) can also work too
