I have the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

0 = 3[cos(35)*cos(A) - sin(35)*sin(A)] - cos(A)

where A is alpha...my unknown degree.

somehow that turns into this:

tan(A) = [cos(35) - 1/3] / sin(35)

I am not drawing the connection or seeing how that is happening....

Could you help???? THANKS
