in the special right triangle. with x on the adjacent. and on the right corner of the oppisite equaling 30 degrees. with y. on the side of the oppisite. and the hypotenuse equaling 40 degrees, how do you find x and y. and what are they?

  • math -

    if it is a special triangle:
    -the side opposite to the 30 degree angle is equal to 1
    -the side opposite to the 60 degree angle is equal to the square root of 3
    -the side opposite to the 90 degree angle is 2

    all angles in a triangle need to equal 180 degrees.
    i think the angle you are looking for is 20 degrees
    but you description isn't clear so i'm not sure
