## Lets try an example!

## Tangent Triangle

In this triangle we are given an angle and the adjacent side to it. We want to find the opposite side. From our SOH CAH TOA we would use TOA to find the missing side because it is opposite over adjacent.

1. Determine what trigonometry ratio to use (cosine in this case)

2. Insert the measurements in the known equation

3. Rearrange the equation.

4. Solve for x by using the Tan button on your calculator.

5. Don't forget the units
