Look at what you're given. You have the opposite side and you want to find the hypotenuse.
That means that you need to use sinθ = opp/hyp
Rearranging: hyp = opp/sinθ = 32/sin 56° = 38.60m (nearest cm)
Same again. Look at what you're given. You have the adjacent side this time and you still want to find the hypotenuse. So, you need to use cosθ = adj/hyp
Rearranging: hyp = adj/cosθ = 5.2/cos 23° = 5.65m (nearest cm)
Try to do the bottom two on your own. They're exactly the same as the top two, just with different lengths and angles.
For future reference, you may also need tanθ = opp/adj, but you don't need that here.
Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
Can anyone check or correct these answers I have please:
Bottom left: 171.334m
Bottom Right: 45.583m
