i found the ther angle in the triangle so it is 4-86-90

and i found the sin(86)= 2493.91 because sin(86)=x/2500 multiply bioth sides by 2500 and then x=2500xsin(86) x=2493.91 Therefore the hyptotenus is 2493.91 but I think that is wrong because 2500 is more than that and it is a leg

You need to be in degrees. Change your calculator to radians. The equation is: \[\tan 4 = \frac{ x }{ 2,500 }\]

wait that cant be right either
cutiecomittee123
  • cutiecomittee123
no way because then the hypotenus is smaller than the leg

ohhhh i see we were using tan so it is the oposite leg and that is the overall answer to the side that we were looking for, okay thanks, i was making it way more complicated than it shoulve been

I agree. This question doesn't make any sense, because it gives a slant of 270 feet per room which is nonsensical, but given the information, that is the correct answer. No one ever said maths made sense.
