Tan inverse

1)- if tanC= -0.6687 find C to the nearest degree C?


MY ANSWER


-33.77064668


OR SHOULD IT BE -33.80




2)- COS 59 = X/36


X = (COS 59)* (36) =


18.5713707 CORRECT??




3)- sin 25= 34/x

x= (sin 25) * (34) =

14.3690209 correct ???


thanks

All correct! The first one says to the nearest degree, which would be -34 degrees. (Also note that this is a reference angle. So we would have another solution 180 - 33.77.)

Question 1) if tanC= -0.6687 find C to the nearest degree C, C is between 0 and 180 degree?

So my answer

like that

tanC = - 0.6687

tanC IS NEGATIVE

SO MY ANSWER SHOULD BE BETWEEN 90-180

tan(90+A) = -tanA

tanC = tan(90+A) = -0.6687

tan(90+A) = -tanA

-tanA = -0.6687 remove negatives

A = tan^(-1) 0.6687

A = 33.77

C = 90+33.77 = 123.77 degree CORRECT????

for question 3)


3)- sin 25= 34/x

sin5= .423

.423=34/x

.423x=34

x=34/.423

x=80.37 correct?

No. cos(59$^\circ\!$)*36 = 18.5413707 (approximately).

That's incorrect. As tan(180$^\circ\!$ - C) = -tan C,
you want 180$^\circ\!$ - 33.77$^\circ\!$... = 146.23$^\circ\!$ approximately (or 146$^\circ\!$ if rounded to the nearest degree).

x=80.37 correct?
No. You need better accuracy. Also, you typed sin5, but meant sin 25.
sin(25$^\circ\!$) = 0.42261826174...
so x = 34/0.42261826174... = 80.450853827... = 80.45 approximately.
