Section 7.1 – Solving Right Triangles 1 Section 7.1 Solving Right Triangles In this section we’ll solve right triangles, which means that you will find all lengths and measures that were not given. You’ll use the six trigonometric functions of an angle to do this. Applications with Right Triangles Example 1: Use the given angle and the given side to find x and y in the triangle below. Example 2: In MAT with right angle A, MA = 9 cm and AT = 7 cm. Find angle M. 40 ° x 10 ft. y

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
