Pythagorean Theorem. a^2 + b^2 = c^2
Which only works with right triangles, which this is.
cos x= y/(distance between sun and moon y= Distance between earth and sun Secant x= Distance between moon and sun/y y*secant x= distance between moon and sun
nono you are making this complicated.
Im very confused
Idk where to even start explaining this
never mins ask nono
I was talking about something else
Im not sure where to start explaining this or how to put it in words im not even sure how to do the equation I just need to know how to words this
let me put it this way. The angle x is known and distance y ..So using the trigonometric function for adjacent by hypotenuse .the hypotenuse is found which is the distance between the sun and the moon as shown in the figure
So Is that how I explain it? @nono266
