Homework Help: Working out angle.

  1. Jun 6, 2008 #1
    i know that pCosX = 6 and 0.2(pSinX+25)= 6

    pSinx = 5
    pCosx = 6

    how do i solve for X.. i'm not sure how this works

    What do you mean by psin(x)? What does the p stands for? Is it a variable?

    Hint: whenever you have cos and sin (and nothing else), rearrange, take squares, and add. :smile:
