A right triangle has a hypotenuse of length 3.00 m, and one of its angles is 30.0°. What are the lengths of (a) the side opposite the 30.0° angle and (b) the side adjacent to the 30.0° angle?

  • math -

    a) sin 30º = opposite/3.00
    opposite = 3.00(sin 30º) = ....

    b) adjacent = 3.00(cos 30º) = ....
