Look at the triangle. Which side is the hypotenuse?
Last Formula Tan60=8/y y=8/Tan60
errr but we're only given 1 side and 1 angle with 2 unknowns though ?!
@shylibra16 For simplicity, call the sides x, y, and 8. Of the three sides x, y, and 8, which one is the hypotenuse?
the x is the hypotenuse
Good. That means the y and the 8 are legs. Now look at the given angle. For that given angle, which side, y or 8, is the adjacent leg?
Hint: adjacent means "next to". Opposite means "across from".

For the 60-deg angle, the y side is the opposite leg. For the 60-deg angle, the 8 side is the adjacent leg.
|dw:1436847013290:dw|
We know the angle. We know the adjacent leg. We are looking for the opposite leg. Look above at @Nurali 's helpful figure, and see which trig function relates the angle to the opposite and adjacent legs?
so its 13.9?
The tangent relates the opposite and the adjacent legs. You get \(\tan 60^o = \dfrac{opp}{adj} \) \(\tan 60^o = \dfrac{y}{8} \) \(y = 8 \tan 60^o\) \(y = 13.9\) You are correct.
YAY!
Tan60=8/y Not Tan60=y/8
so if it's \[\tan60 = \frac{8}{y}\] then \[y[\tan60]=8\] \[y=\frac{8}{\tan60}\] like that? @Nurali
