If I have a right triangle and I know the hyp and the length of the opposite side of the angle I want then how do I find that angle? For instance: hyp = .9m and side opposite the angle I want = 1.5m. I tried dividing 1.5/.9 = 1.7 then I thought all i had to do was take the inverse sin of 1.7 and it would give me my angle but my calc gives me an error... So im confused, how do I get the angle i want?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
