Do you know the definitions of the Trig functions for a Right Triangle?
You can find them here: http://www.regentsprep.org/regents/math/algtrig/att1/trigsix.htm
I just need help working out the question.
Look in the triangle I drew above. Now look at your problem Which pieces of info do you know and what are you looking for?
The opposite is what I am looking for.
dayyyum girl u smart
Okay so how do I find it?
You want the opposite. You have the angle and the adjacent. Which trig function, sine, cosine, or tangent, relate the angle measure to the opposite and the adjacent?
Opposite is cosine
Adjacent is Sine
No. Look in my drawing above. First, the cosine does not have the opposite at all. In addition, you need one ratio that has both adjacent and opposite since we don't know anything about the hypotenuse.
Oh im sorry it is tan because of opp/adj
Now you can rewrite the left side as a fraction over 1 and solve it like a proportion by cross multiplying.
Do you understand it?
Yes I think so. So that means it would be C?
Thank you for helping me @mathstudent55
