Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\tan(\theta) = \frac{\text{opposite}}{\text{adjacent}}\]\[\Downarrow\]\[\theta = \tan^{1}\left(\frac{\text{opposite}}{\text{adjacent}}\right)=\arctan\left(\frac{\text{opposite}}{\text{adjacent}}\right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the question is only asking you to find \(\tan\theta\), you don't have to compute the value of theta,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my calculator said it was 1/2 as the answer, but it said that 1/2 is not correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\tan\theta = \dfrac{6}{2\sqrt 5}=\dfrac{2\times3}{2\times\sqrt 5}=\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\tan \emptyset \frac{ 6}{ 5 }=\frac{ 3 }{ 5 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now rationalize the denominator \[\tan\theta = \frac{6}{2\sqrt 5}=\frac{3}{\sqrt 5}=\frac{3}{\sqrt 5}\times\frac{\sqrt5}{\sqrt5}=\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{3}{\sqrt 5}\times\frac{\sqrt5}{\sqrt5}=\frac{3\times\sqrt5}{\sqrt5\times\sqrt5}\] now simplify the denominator
