    Use your Pythagorean Theorem to find the missing side, then recall that tangent is `opposite` over `adjacent` :)

    They show you the steps how they got the answer on there but you need a premium account or something

    @zepdrix Yes you were right thank you i understand how to do this now:) I thought it was slightly more simple. I got the same answert that wolfram alpha gave me. Each side is 3-4-5 and tantheta= 4/3
