\[4^2=2^2+5^2-2\times 5\times \cos(A)\]
misty1212
  • misty1212
so \[16=29-10\cos(A)\]
misty1212
  • misty1212
first we get \(\cos(A)\) by itself, then A
misty1212
  • misty1212
\[\cos(A)=\frac{13}{10}=1.3\]hmm made a mistake somewhere

\[4^2=2^2+5^2-2\times 5\times2\times \cos(A)\]\[16=29-20\cos(A)\] so \[\cos(A)=\frac{13}{20}=.65\]

  • misty1212
lol use wolfram
misty1212
  • misty1212
\[A=\cos^{-1}(.65)\]

look at the degree answer since your answers are in degrees
misty1212
  • misty1212
you see it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i am unsure of how to get the degree! im sorry
misty1212
  • misty1212
look at the link i sent it is right there
anonymous
  • anonymous
49.46! thank you
misty1212
  • misty1212
i typed in \(\arccos(.65)\) in to wolfram, it gives the answer in radians and also in degrees
