Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok, do you know how to find the length of the missing side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah it's where you do a^2 + b^2 = c^2 and then you square root it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok, so what's the missing side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 42, but my pre calc book got 40, so I really don't know what I did wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh, okay. I got 40 as my answer. Thank you so much

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yup, x = 40 so now we have all three sides, now comes the easy partdw:1443395117726:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so, our trig functions are: sin(theta) = opposite/hypotenuse cos(theta) = adjacent/hypotenuse tan(theta) = opposite/adjacent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3csc(theta) = hypotenuse/opposite sec(theta) = hypotenuse/adjacent cot(theta) = adjacent/opposite

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3now all you need to do is look at the triangle and plug in the numbers where they belong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know how to do those parts. They are the easiest. :b but I have another triangle with the opoosite being 15, the adjacent being 8, & the hypotenuse missing. I did the eexact same thing in order to solve it , but I got 12.68 and my book got 17.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the opposite and adjacent are always a & b and the hypotenuse is always c?
