What is the value of x?

cos 63°  = sin x

 

x = __°

cos 63°  = sin x

 

After switching sides:

 

\sin \left(x\right)=\cos \left(63^{\circ \:}\right)

 

Using \cos \left(x\right)=\sin \left(90^{\circ \:}-x\right)

 

We have:

 

\sin \left(x\right)=\sin \left(90^{\circ \:}-63^{\circ \:}\right)

 

So x = 180^{\circ \:}-27^{\circ \:}+360^{\circ \:}n,\:x=360^{\circ \:}n+27^{\circ \:}\(180^{\circ \:}-27^{\circ \:}+360^{\circ \:}n,\:x=360^{\circ \:}n+27^{\circ \:}\)

x = 180° - 27° + 360° n, x = 360° n + 27°

We jhave the identity....

 

cos (A)  = sin (90- A)

 

So

 

cos (63)  = sin (90- 63)

 

cos (63)  = sin (27).....so....x  = 27  (degrees)

 

cool cool cool

Do you know what I did wrong?

Your answer is good, Supermanaccz....it would cover all possibilities.....mine was just using a basic identity.......both are OK
