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 Last edited by yorkmanz; May 25th, 2019 at 02:52 PM.

So my answer like that tanC =  0.6687 tanC IS NEGATIVE SO MY ANSWER SHOULD BE BETWEEN 90180 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?

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). Quote:
sin(25$^\circ\!$) = 0.42261826174... so x = 34/0.42261826174... = 80.450853827... = 80.45 approximately.
