In triangle ABC <C=90 degrees, AB=12m and AC=8m. Calculate the measure of <ABC.

  • Math -

    so first i recommend drawing a picture. 12 ends up being the hypotenuse and <ABC is across from the leg AC which is 8 so then you use trig to solve
    sin(x) = 8/12
    x = sin^-1 (aka sin inverse) of 8/12
    x is approx. 41.81 degrees

    thank you!
