week 3 – math 10

This week we looked at trigonometry. One thing I learned was how to locate Hypotenuse, Adjacent, and Opposite sides on a right triangle with a given angle.

To find the sides, always start with hypotenuse, to find hyp. look for the 90 degree angle and the side its is opposite from is hypotenuse (H). Then your left with 2 sides. To find adjacent and opposite you have to look at the given angle, whatever side is across from the angle is opposite and the left over side (the one beside the angle) is adjacent!
