Question about Casio FX-9750GPlus Calculator

Sorry to say it, bu Mathematics is not Mathemagic: you cannot do things with the shaking of a wand.

There are several ways to find one angle in a right triangle when you have the measures of the sides. You must have the triangle drawn in front of you and then decide if you use the sine, the cosine or the tangent. I cannot presume to know what your triangle looks like.

I suggest you look at the definitions of the trigonometric ratios and find out what is given in your problem.

If you use a ratio to find the cosine, you can then use the arcsine function to find the angle.

If you use one particular ratio to find the sine, you can then use the arcsine to find the angle.

If you know two sides a and b and you know the angle (B) opposite side b, you can use the sine formula (sin(A)/a=sin(B)/b) to determine sin(A) then use the arcsine of the result to get angle A.

Do post a comment to this thread with the case you are trying to solve.

Assuming that the angle at A is the right angle, Pythagoras' theorem says that the length of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is the square root of the sum of the squares of the other two sides. In your case, AB and AC are 'the other two sides' and BC is the hypotenuse, so:

__ __ __ __

/ 2 2 /

length BC = V 10 + 20 = V 100 + 400

__ __

= V 500 = 22.36 cm

(To find the angle at C, you need trigonometry and is arc-tan(10/20)

and the angle at B is arc-tan(20/10) - 26.5 deg and 63.5 deg)

/ 2 2 /

length BC = V 10 + 20 = V 100 + 400

= V 500 = 22.36 cm

(To find the angle at C, you need trigonometry and is arc-tan(10/20)

and the angle at B is arc-tan(20/10) - 26.5 deg and 63.5 deg)

If I understand your terminology correctly, you have a triangle with a hypotenuse of 6' 3-13/16" and a side opposite the angle you wish to find with a length of 8" (and a side adjacent to the angle you wish to find with a length of 6' 3-3/8") Trigonometry says that the sine of an angle is the length of the opposite side divided by the hypotenuse. (all units must be the same, so convert everything to inches)

So sine (angle) = 8/(6 * 12 + 3 + 13/16)

sine (angle = 8/(75.8125)

sine(angle) = .105523

angle = arc-sine(.105523)

angle = 6.0573 degrees (from tables, calculator, computer etc)

So sine (angle) = 8/(6 * 12 + 3 + 13/16)

sine (angle = 8/(75.8125)

sine(angle) = .105523

angle = arc-sine(.105523)

angle = 6.0573 degrees (from tables, calculator, computer etc)

if it is a right angle triangle then you will need trigonometry to do so.

Label of key [deg symbol ' "]. It is between [(-)] and [hyp]

To enter a value in decimal degrees

12.58 [deg ' "] [=] Screen displays 12.58 deg on top line and 12 deg 34' 48" on bottom line.

Pressing the [deg ' "] key while this value is displayed will show 12.58

To enter a DMS value:

Press the [deg ' "] key after each number even if one of the numbers D,M,S is nill (0).

Exemple Enter 25 deg 0 ' 48"

25 [deg ' "] 0 [deg ' "] 48 [deg ' "] [=]

Screen displays 25 deg 0' 48" on bottom line

Pressing the [deg ' "] key converts this result to decimal degrees 25.013

This showed you how to enter angles in DMS or DD. For the rest 'find the angles, etc.' you should refer to your trigonometry manual: You have the definitions of the trigonometric ratios, the sine law, the cosine law to resolve triangles.

In right triangle we are making 90 degree angle triangle, we can have problem for finding hypotenuse or finding sin or cos values of the side of the triangle.
For ex,Find out the hypotenuse,sin and cos value of the right triangle with base 4 cm and perpendicular 3 cm
Solution:Hypotenuse = SQRT(4^2 + 3^2)
=SQRT(4*4 + 3*3)
=SQRT(16+9)=SQRT(25)=5 cm
For right triangle,
sin(x)=3/5=0.6
cos(x)=4/5 =0.8

Tangent is a trigonometry term. It is used to find the Opposite/Adjacent ratio when given an angle measure in a right triangle. The proper syntax is tan(angle measure).

It is not clear which angle you are talking about...

In one case the Hypot = 36/(cos(63)) meters. (about 79 meters)

The other case Hypot = 36/(cos(90-63)) meters (about 40 meters)

In one case the Hypot = 36/(cos(63)) meters. (about 79 meters)

The other case Hypot = 36/(cos(90-63)) meters (about 40 meters)

Hi Jehho soria

Draw a right triangle with the vertical portion of the triangle representing the 37 meters of the light house The base of the triangle is the distance we are trying to find. If the angle of depression is 15 degrees, the other angle is 75 degrees. This is the angle from the boat to the top of the lighthouse.

so The Tangent of 75 degrees is equal to the side opposite the angle (the height of the lighthouse) divided by the side adjacent (the distance we are trying to find.

solving for the distance we get distance = 37 divided by the tangent of 37 degrees

Looking up the tangent of 15 degrees on google give .2679

dividing 137 by .2679=138,1 meters

Hope this helps Loringh PS Please leave a rating for me.
