bearing of 130°.

Draw a sketch showing the points H, R and P and work out the size of angle HRP.

**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 11:32amI hope you made the sketch.

I have a nice right-angled triangle HRP

with angle R = 90° , HR = 40, RP = 30

Could you tell me the angles for H and P

R= 90

H= ?

p = ?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 11:54amuse simple trig

for angle H

tanH = opposite/adjacent

= 30/40 = .75

angle H = appr.36.9°

then by simple subraction, angle P = 90-36.9 = 53.1°

use 2nd Tan on your calculator

(tan inverse or arctan, depending on your calculator

on mine I do:

2ndF

tan

.75

=

to get 36.869...
