Suppose the angle is \(\theta\). Then: \[ \sin(\theta) = \frac{y}{15+x} = \frac{8}{17} = \frac{x}{y} \]Also: \[ \cos(\theta) = \frac{17}{15+x} = \frac{15}{17} = \frac{8}{y} \]

you can apply the pythagoras theorem to large and smallest triangles (15 + x)^2 = 17^2 + y^2 y^2 + x/62 + 8^2

* y^2 = x^2 + 8^2

  • welshfella
substituting y*2 = x^2 + 8^2 into the first equation (15 + x)^2 = 17^2 + x^2 + 8^2
