A right triangle has an 80 degree angle. How many times larger is the longer leg compared to the shorter leg? Round your answer to the nearest whole number. 

 

Thanks!

Tan = Opp/Adj

 

The angle opposite of 80 is the larger leg.

 

So Tan (80) = tan(80) = 9.003654945607

 

Rounded to the nearest whole number, it is 9 times larger
