tan(t) =3 /2; cos(t) = 1/(1+(tant)^2)= 1/(1+3/4) = 2/7

right or wrong?

**Reiny**, Friday, October 3, 2008 at 4:45pmYou are doing this the hard way.

make a diagram

since tan theta = √3/2, and tan theta = opposite/adjacent, make the oppose √3 and the adjacent 2

In your head you could do Pythagoras and get the hypotenuse √7

since cos theta = adjacent/hypotenuse

cos theta = 2/√7

which is what you got.
