Hi;

Very good. Did you draw a diagram on that trig problem about the house?

Forcing them to computational math would reduce their numbers real quick.

Unfortunately, that does not reduce their numbers. Only one thing does.

I think we should consider all topologists the same.

Definitely! And there's so many of 'em!

Yea, they are weird.

And, it would make even topologists happy. They already think all triangles are the same!

All triangles should be named ABC by law. What if you have a bunch of them? No difference!

1. What is the sine of an acute angle whose cosine is 7/25?

2. I'm standing at 300 feet from the base of a very tall building. The building is on a slight hill, so that when I look straight ahead, I am staring at the base of the building. When I look upward at an angle of 54 degrees, I am looking at the top of the building. To the nearest foot, how many feet tall is the building?

3. If A is an acute angle such that \tan A + \sec A = 2, then find \cos A.

4. In triangle GHI, we have GH = HI = 25 and GI = 30. What is \sin\angle GIH?

5. In triangle GHI, we have GH = HI = 25 and GI = 40. What is \sin\angle GHI? (Note: This is NOT the exact same as the previous problem!)
