How do I solve this problem using trigonometry?
You have to use trigonometry
First, find label the side. Opposite is the side opposite of the angle, adjacent is the side next to the angle and the hypotenuse is the longest side.
Then, depending on the information you have (in this case you have the opposite and the hypotenuse) you will use the ratio for either
So when you fill your information into the ratio you should have
Once you reverse the equation you would therefore be multiplying
In the right triangle, the angle next to the
This make this triangle a special right triangle which is called a
In such a triangle, the side opposite the
And the side adjacent to the
You can also use the Pythagoras' formula
The angle of
