  • I'm trying to find the sides and angles of a triangle, but I only have a little information
  • there is a formula called SOHCAHTOA that we can use. I never thought I would use this in real life
  • I know the distance of the longest side is 14 and an angle is 42 degrees
  • so to find the last angle we can use sine
  • how do you do that?
  • you set up the equation like this: sin(42)=x/14 Click To Edityou set up the equation like this: Sin(42) Help Insert ParagraphUndoes the last commandRedoes the last commandTabUntabSet a bold styleSet a italic styleSet a underline styleSet a strikethrough styleClean a styleSet left alignSet center alignSet right alignSet full alignToggle unordered listToggle ordered listOutdent on current paragraphIndent on current paragraphChange current block's format as a paragraph(P tag)Change current block's format as H1Change current block's format as H2Change current block's format as H3Change current block's format as H4Change current block's format as H5Change current block's format as H6Insert horizontal Summernote 0.8.11 · Project · Issues
  • once you plug that into your calculator you get that the bigger side equals 9.4
  • you can also use tangent to find the last side like this: tan(42)=9.4/x which equals 8.5
  • Wow thanks so much!
  • you can also use SOHCAHTOA to find angles. like this: sin-1(9.4/14) = 42!
