Work Step by Step

Chapter 2 - Section 2.3 Problem Set: 29 (Solution) Refer to Figure I $\angle A$ + $\angle B$ + $90^{\circ}$ = $180^{\circ}$ ($\angle$ sum of $\triangle$) $\angle A$ + $76^{\circ}$ + $90^{\circ}$ = $180^{\circ}$ $\angle A$ = $14^{\circ}$ $\cos 76^{\circ} = \frac{a}{c}$ $a = 5.8 \cdot \cos 76^{\circ}$ $a = 1.4$ ft (To two significant digits) $\sin 76^{\circ} = \frac{b}{c}$ $b = 5.8 \cdot \sin 76^{\circ}$ $b = 5.6$ ft (To two significant digits)
