right triangle

how do you solve for a triangle when it gives you only one side number (opposite of hypotenuse) and the inside number is 62 degrees and its a right triangle

Re: right triangle

Hi;

You use SOHCAHTOA.

(opposite of hypotenuse)

The right angle is opposite the hypotenuse.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
