In a right triangle, the side adjacent to an angle of 44 degrees is 45 cm. How long is the opposite side?
Deleted ....error. time to quit for the night!
Why would the opposite side be the hypotenuse? If the opposite side was the hypotenuse that would mean that the given angle would have to be 90 degrees (this is a right triangle), which it isn't. That would mean that you would use tangent: opposite / adjacent.
tan(44) = x/45
x = 43.46cm
