find the value of x.Round to the nearest tenth.

x is the height the hypotenuse side is 14 and the angle is 33degrees

shadow u there

Depending on whether the x is adjacent or opposite of the angle, use either sin or cos. You can set it up something like this: \[\sin 33 = \frac{x}{14}\] And solve for x. Make sure that you use sin or cos, whichever one is appropriate, though.

so how do i write that on the ti 30x calculator

x is oposite to 33degrees and hypothenuse is 14

So which is appropriate, sin or cos? Which ratio involves both the opposite and the adjacent?

so i need sine

sin

Right.

So how do you solve the above equation for x?

i guess i press sin then put 33 divided by 14

do i press sin then (33 / 14)

or 33sin(14)

Not divided by 14.

Multiply. But yes, sin then 33 then times 14 would do it, and 14 then times then sin 33 should also work.

i got 7.98

Hm. Should be 13.998 or so.

i get .9 or 7.6 or .007 can u show me a formula on how u did it

14 * sin(33). It's the only solution to the equation above.

i got the same thing 7.62494649

Simpler calculators may require you to do: 33 <sin button> <x button> 14 <=>

i got the texas instrument TI-30XTIS

i just got 7.983422555

And I have no idea how it works :) I'm just guessing.

so u dont know how to do it?

On your calculator? No idea.

it cant be 13.998

since hypotenuse is 14

I'm an idiot, I'm sorry.

shadow can u put the sine cosine tangent formulas again see if im right

7.6 was correct. I've been using degrees where things expected radians.

ur not an idiot mistakes are always made that is what makes us humans

is it 33 sin(14) or 14 sin (33)

It's 14 sin(33)

in a cosine let say its the same numbers how u find the end result
