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.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
