In [3], the three corresponding angles are equal.[color=beige] .[/color]The triangle are congruent by a,s,a, In [2], we have the "ambiguous case". With the given information, two different triangles are possible. Code: * * 14 * * 14 * * * * 12 * * 12 * 55 * * 55 * * * * * * * * * * * The answer is:[color=beige] .[/color](E) 1 and 3 only.

Measure of a tangent is opposite over adjacent angles. You will need a scientific or graphing calculator. Here's an example: I \ I \ I_ \ I_I__\ The angle to the right of the right angle is the example I will use. I will call it 'A'. TAN A=opposite/adjacent. The number of the opposite and adjacent sides should be given. This is a ratio. TAN A = ratio. Divide by TAN (hit TAN 1: you will have to use the 2nd key) on both sides. You will then have: A = TAN1 (multiplied by) ratio. YOU MUST HAVE A CALCULATOR TO DO THIS PROBLEM. Repeat this for the other angle you need. Then add your results, giving you the final measure of the large angle.
