What is the measure of angle P?
round to the nearest hundredth.
Because this is a right triangle, you can use sin, cos, or tan.
If you use sin:
sin = opp / hyp
The side opposite angle(P) = 15; the hypotenuse = 17.
---> sin(P) = 15 / 17
---> sin(P) = 0.8823529412
---> P = sin-1( 0.8823529412)
---> P = 61.93o
