i basically know what to do.. but i have problems drawing the triangle and knowing what sides are which.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"a balloon rises upward, at a rate for 0.7 m/s, to a height of 20m before it pops. a breeze of 1.5m/s due east blows against the balloon."

so the hypotenuse (sp?) is the unknown side?

and how does one know which angle is the opposite angle?
