Correct.
ok so the image you showed me we need to find the x which is the height of the airplane from the ground
x would be one of the legs
we alraedy have the degree soooo....
Yup.
Your doing good so far.
so what would we use for it sin cosine or tan
Are you asking me because you are confused?
no what do u think we should use
Well You tell me, this is a challenge that I am giving. You are getting the right idea so far.
so u know the answer
Yes.
i didnt know that
ok so i believe we would use tan
and the equation would tan 7=3,729/x right?
Yes.
and the equation would tan 7=3,729/x right?
solve for x
which is
which is
You are doing it right.
yeah im trying to find the answer
i would multiply divide by the numerator right
