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
