A triangle can have a measure up to 180 degrees I believe. 56+48=104 180-104=?

  • Liv1234
When you subtract 180 by 104 you should get your other angle!

I am thinking that those numbers are the length of the sides, not the measure of angles. I am also assuming this is a right triangle. Is these safe assumptions?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

I agree that those numbers 56 and 48 represent the lengths of the two legs of this triangle, which we assume is a right triangle. Which trig function involves opposite side, adjacent side and an acute angle?
radar
  • radar
Then we can use a trigometric function. Tangent comes to mind. The tangent of x is 56/48. Would you verify that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes thats right
anonymous
  • anonymous
tan = 56/48
radar
  • radar
O.k , then the measure would be the inverse tangent |dw:1450221804099:dw|

What angle in degrees did you get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
49.39
mathmale
  • mathmale
Agreed. But please reduce that fraction, and please find the angle x, in degrees.
radar
  • radar
Good enough, and that was a good tip from mathmale, reduce the fraction.

56/48 = 6/7

arctan(6/7) = 40.60
radar

Close, but upside down!
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops! arctan(7/6) = 49.39
radar

Better

is that the angle?
radar
  • radar
According to my calculations, yes.........but I err sometimes!
radar
  • radar
And most of all according to your calculations, you have solved it twice.

i noticed that lol but could u help me with one more question?

solve for the height...|dw:1450222484752:dw|

Here again the tangent function will be employed. The tangent of 29 degrees would be h/975. Use you calculator and solve this : h = Tan 29 degrees times 975 yards.
anonymous
  • anonymous
tan (29)(975) = 540.45
radar
  • radar
Agree

Good luck with your studies.

56+48=104 Since the sum of the angles in a triangle equals 180 then you subtract 104 from 180 180-104=76
