right triangle has an acute angle of 24.8 and an adjacent length of 145 what is the side opposite of the acute angle

  • trig -

    idk bbg but i cld guess 42

  • trig -

    tangent = opposite / adjacent

    tan 24.8 ° = x / 145

    x = 145 * tan 24.8 °

    x = 145 * 0.462065

    x = 66.9994

    x = aprox. 67
