6. Find the length of the missing side (x). Round to the nearest tenth.

1. Answer :

In the above right angled triangle, note that for the given angle θ, PQ is the ‘opposite’ side and PR is the ‘adjacent’ side.

Then,

sinθ = opposite side/hypotenuse = PQ/QR = 5/13

cosθ = adjacent side/hypotenuse = PR/QR = 12/13

tanθ = opposite side/adjacent side = PQ/PR = 5/12

cscθ = 1/sinθ = 13/5

secθ = 1/cosθ = 13/12

cotθ = 1/tanθ = 12/5

2. Answer :

In the right angled triangle ABC shown above,

AC = 24

BC = 7

By Pythagorean theorem,

AB2 = BC2 + CA2

AB2 = 72 + 242

AB2 = 49 + 576

AB2 = 625

AB2 = 252

AB = 25 

Now, we can use the three sides to find the six trigonometric ratios of angle θ.

sinθ = opposite side/hypotenuse = BC/AB = 7/25

cosθ = adjacent side/hypotenuse = AC/AB = 24/25

tanθ = opposite side/adjacent side = BC/AC = 7/24

cscθ = 1/sinθ = 25/7

secθ = 1/cosθ = 25/24

cotθ = 1/tanθ = 24/7

3. Answer :

15sinA = 12

sinA = 12/15

sinA = opposite side/hypotenuse

sinA = 12/15

By Pythagorean theorem,

AC2 = AB2 + BC2

152 = AB2 + 122

225 = AB2 + 144

Subtract 144 from each side.

81 = AB2

92 = AB2

9 = AB 

Now, we can use the three sides to find the five trigonometric ratios of angle A and six trigonometric ratios of angle C.

cosA = adjacent side/hypotenuse

= AB/AC

= 9/15

= 3/5

tanA = opposite side/adjacent side

= BC/AB

= 12/9

= 4/3

cscA = 1/sinA

= 15/12

= 5/4

secA = 1/cosA

= 5/3

cotA = 1/tanA

= 3/4

4. Answer :

In the right ΔABD, by Pythagorean Theorem,

AB2 = AD2 + BD2

132 = AD2 + 52

169 = AD2 + 25

Subtract 25 from each side.

144 = AD2

122 = AD2

12 = AD

In the right ΔACD, by Pythagorean Theorem,

AC2 = AD2 + CD2

AC2 = 122 + 162

AC2 = 144 + 256

AC2 = 400

AC2 = 202

AC = 20

Then,

sinB = opposite side/hypotenuse = AD/AB = 12/13

secB = hypotenuse/adjacent side = AB/BD = 13/5

cotB = adjacent side/opposite side = BD/AD = 5/12

cosC =  adjacent side/hypotenuse 

= CD/AC

= 16/20

= 4/5

tanC = opposite side/adjacent side

= AD/CD

= 12/16

= 3/4

cscC = hypotenuse/opposite side

= AC/AD

= 20/12

= 5/3

5. Answer :

In the triangle shown above, the length of the hypotenuse is x and for the angle 51°, the side which has the length 10 is adjacent side.

We know the length of adjacent side and we have to find the length of hypotenuse.

So, we have to use the trigonometric ratio in which we have hypotenuse and adjacent side.

sec51° = hypotenuse/adjacent side

sec51° = x/10

Multiply each side by 10.

10 ⋅ sec51° = x

Use calculator. 

15.9 ≈ x

6. Answer :

In the triangle shown above, the length of the hypotenuse is 17 and for the angle 59°, the side which has the length x is opposite side.

We know the length of hypotenuse and we have to find the length of opposite side.

So, we have to use the trigonometric ratio in which we have opposite side and hypotenuse.

Then, we have 

sin59° = opposite side/hypotenuse

sin59° = x/17

Multiply each side by 17.

17 ⋅ sin59° = x

Use calculator. 

14.6 ≈ x
