Sin cos tan

In triangle ABC, right-angled at B.
Sides/AB/=7cm, /BC/=5cm, /AC/=8.6cm.
Find to two decimal places.
A. Sine C
B. Cosine C
C. Tangent C.

Correct answer:

S =  0.814
K =  0.5814
T =  1.4

Step-by-step explanation:

c=7 cm a=5 cm b=8.6 cm B=90   S=sinC=c:b S=bc=8.67=4335=0.814
K=cosC=a:b K=ba=8.65=4325=0.5814
T=tanC=c:a=cosCsinC T=ac=57=152=1.4=57=152=1.4   Verifying Solution:  b2=a2+c2=52+72=74 cm8.6023 cm
