Can someone just find the measurements of these two angles for me? I forgot everything I learned in algebra.


Thanks a lot.

don't you mean you don't remember anything from geometry?

You would need to find the following dimensions that I highlighted in red. From there you can use SIN COS & TAN functions on a calculator to figure out the missing dimensions.

or, if that drawing is to scale, you can simply use a protractor.

Cool, thanks a lot man. I didn't realize that there's a right triangle there.

There are the measurements, I forgot how to do the SIN COS TAN. Do you divide the 2 angles then apply SIN to that? Could you do it for me?

Thanks a lot.

both angles should be about 79 degrees

if i remember my math right
