From that point P, we could then measure the angle required to sight the top . If that angle (called the angle of elevation) turned out to be 37°, then<br /><br />so that h <br />100 = tan 37° <br />so that <br />so that h = 100 × tan 37°. <br /><br />From the Table, we find<br /><br />tan 37° = .754<br /><br />Therefore, on multiplying by 100,<br /><br />h = 75.4 feet.<br /><br />All functions from one function<br /><br />If we know the value of any one trigonometric function, then -- with the aid of the Pythagorean theorem -- we can find the rest.<br /><br /> Example 1. In a right triangle, sin θ = 5 <br />13 . Sketch the triangle, place <br /><br />the ratio numbers, and evaluate the remaining functions of θ.<br /><br />To find the unknown side x, we have<br /><br />x² + 5² = 13²<br /><br />x² = 169 − 25 = 144.<br /><br />Therefore,<br /><br />x = = 12.<br /><br />(Lesson 26 of Algebra.)<br /><br />We can now evaluate all six functions of θ:<br /><br />sin θ = 5 <br />13 csc θ = 13<br /> 5 <br />cos θ = 12<br />13 sec θ = 13<br />12 <br />tan θ = 5 <br />12 cot θ = 12<br /> 5 <br /><br />Wait, what was the question?philhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16976466398567593591noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-17480875.post-91547124840866553102010-12-09T09:50:03.415-05:002010-12-09T09:50:03.415-05:00LOL, Whet!LOL, Whet!Yosthttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09715437509940349084noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-17480875.post-1999701372723195572010-12-09T08:37:11.764-05:002010-12-09T08:37:11.764-05:00When asked about the tragedy, Whetstonebuck stated...When asked about the tragedy, Whetstonebuck stated, "Well, the edge was closer than we all thought.
