To the nearest degree, determine the measure of angle X for each value of
tan X
a. tan X = 0.49

Just not sure how to solve these questions

• trig -

Tan-1(0.49) is not one of those which have exact answers. You will have to resort to a calculator or a table of tangents.
On a calculator, enter 0.49 and press the button tan-1, which is usually preceded by a yellow key, and is written above the tan key. I get about 26°.
