Hey guys, i am starting to program 3D worlds and got stuck on math... lol go figure.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This should be simple and I am completely embarassed to post this. But I am trying to find the height of my triange on one side. Here is the info i have, too bad I can't draw.

It's a right handed triangle, where the right hand angle is on point (0,0). Leaving the far right angle being 45deg. With that being said the Adjacent to length is 50. I neet figure out how tall the triangle is. I hope you can imagine this in your head.

What method to I apply to solve this? Thank you! :) The only method I can remember from high school is a2 + b2 = c2.... pathagreon?!

I think to solve the problem i need to use sin or cos in some fashion.
