If the hypotenuse of a triangle is 8.1 cm and the angle is 38degrees and the adjacent is M find M

Seriously though isn't there some bit of info missing? Dont we need the length of the 3rd side? Or am I forgetting something from Geometry?

I remmeber the Pythorian Therum was a sqaured plus b squared = c squared.


If your looking for the Adjent angle is 52.

Jed, did you learn The sine Cosine and Tangent? Because they really help. here ill do it.

Soh Cah Toa.
Soh= You have the hypotenuse and you want the opposite so you use sine
Cah= You have the hypotenuse and you want the adjacent so you use Cosine
Toa= You have the adjacent and you want the opposite so you use Tangent

We have the hypotenuse and we want the adjacent so we use Cosine and the angle, so we use a calculator and input Cos 38.

So you have: Cos 38= M/ 8.1

M= 6.4 cm
