In week 7 of math 10 we got introduced to trigonometry which is finding the missing side or sides or the angle of the right triangle you are solving. We first learned how to find the which sides are each the hypotenuse, the opposite and the adjacent. The hypotenuse is across from the right angle, the opposite is across from the reference angle and the adjacent is beside the reference angle. We also learned how to create equations from the numbers we are given. we learned to solve them using SOH CAH TOA which helps us find which button to press on our calculator (sin, cos, tan) SOH is sin = opposite / hypotenuse, CAH is cos = adjacent / hypotenuse and TOA = tan = opposite over adjacent. Also if the X is on the bottom of the faction you will have to reciprocate both sides to get the X on top.
Here is how you solve an equation using all that:
