Use the image below to answer the following question:
A right triangle is shown. The two angles that are not 90 degrees are marked x and y. The leg across from angle y measuring 12, another leg across from angle x measuring 16, and the hypotenuse measuring 20.
What relationship do the ratios of sin x° and cos y° share?
The ratios are opposites (16 over 20 and negative 16 over 20)
The ratios are both identical (16 over 20 and 16 over 20)
The ratios are both negative (negative 16 over 20 and negative 16 over 20)
The ratios are reciprocals (16 over 20 and 20 over 16)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sin x = 16/20 = 0.8 sin y = 12/20 = 0.6 so grab ur calc and just find the angles whose sines are 0.8 and 0.6
