which of the following expressions gives the distance, in miles,

from the boat to the dock?

A.) 30 tan 52°

B.) 30 cos 52°

C.) 30 sin 52°

D.)

__30__

cos 52°

E.)

__30__

sin 52°

Trigonometric Ratiosopposite side ----------------- = sin hypotenuse adjacent side ----------------- = cos hypotenuse opposite side ----------------- = tan adjacent side - Algebra House | In the triangle, the distance from the boat to the dock is opposite the 52° angle and 30 miles is adjacent to the 52° angle. tan of 52° will be used in this situation d = distance from boat to dockd ------- = tan 52° {opposite over adjacent equals tan 52°} 30 d = 30(tan 52°) {multiplied each side by 30} A.) 30(tan 52°) |
