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

Unformatted text preview: 2 Example 3: An isosceles triangle has sides measuring 9 inches, 14 inches, and 14 inches. What are the measures of its angles? Example 4: A 216 foot ladder is leaned against the side of a building. If the ladder forms a 41° angle with the ground, how high up the side of the building does the ladder reach? Section 7.1 – Solving Right Triangles 3 Example 5: The angle of elevation to the top of a building from a point on the ground 125 feet away from the building is ° 8 . How tall is the building?...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• 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.
