  • Quick! We have to save that tortise from drowning!
  • The angle is adjacent and opposite to the length and x. This means it is Tan. Tan 77=x/5. x=5xTan(77). X=21.66ft
  • How high up from the ground are we so we can land?
  • 77º
  • 5ft
  • x
  • Ok. The other values are hypotenuse and opposite compared to beta. This means it is Sin. Beta= Sin8/10. Now we inverse it. Beta=sin-1(8/10). Beta=53.13º
  • Thanks! Can you please tell me what angle I have to tilt my head to see that squirrel?
  • 8ft
  • 10ft
  • Look at that Sunset! The shadow on those trees has grown way more than before. Let's find out how much!
  • 34º is adjacent to x and opposite to 10 ft. This means it is Tan. Tan34=10/x. X=12.06
  • 10 ft
  • x
  • 34º
