In Exercise 17 to 22, use either the sine ratio or the cosine ratio to find the length of the indicated sides of the triangle correct to the nearest tenth of a unit. To determine

To find:

The length of the indicated sides of the following triangle, Explanation

Consider the following figure,

General formula for cosine ratio and sin ratio is given below,

From the given figure the value 100 ft is the hypotenuse value since it is opposite to right angle.

Then a is the length of the leg adjacent to 32 and b is the length of leg opposite to 32.

Therefore,

cos32=a100a=100×cos32

Using a scientific calculator in degree mode, follow the following key sequence,

32cos0
