this week in math 10 i learned how to find the missing side length of a right triangle. to do this the first step is to label the hyponenuse, adjacent and the opposite the hypotenuse is the side accross from the right angle, the opposite is the side accross from the angle given and the adjacent is the last side. for step two you find which sides you use for the equation, the two sides you use are the labeled slides. step three you put it into an equation using sin, cos and tan depending on the sides given. for example, tan then the angle = x/the side length given. for step four you multiply both sides of the = by the bottom #. then you are left with somthing like 16(tan34)=x then you type the first part of the equation into your calculator.
