Q:
# to the nearest tenth of an inch, find the length of side c, the hypotenuse

Accepted Solution

A:

For this case we have the following trigonometric relationship:

sine (x) = C.O / h

Where,

x: angle

C.O: opposite leg

h: hypotenuse

Substituting values we have:

sine (20) = 5 / c

Clearing c:

c = 5 / sine (20)

c = 14.619022

Rounding:

c = 14.6 in

Answer:

c = 14.6 in

option 4

sine (x) = C.O / h

Where,

x: angle

C.O: opposite leg

h: hypotenuse

Substituting values we have:

sine (20) = 5 / c

Clearing c:

c = 5 / sine (20)

c = 14.619022

Rounding:

c = 14.6 in

Answer:

c = 14.6 in
