This worksheet is about calculating angles using trigonometry in right-angled triangles.

 

Remember: sin x = opp , cos x = adj , tan x = opp
hyp hyp adj

 

Examples : Find the angle, x, in degrees:

You know
hypotenuse = 5.8;
opposite side = 5;
sin x = 5
5.8
x = sin-1 5
5.8
On your calculator:
x = shift sin (5 ÷ 5.8)
= 59.5 (1 d.p.)
You know
hypotenuse = 6.3;
adjacent side = 2;
cos x = 2
6.3
x = cos-1 2
6.3
On your calculator:
x = shift cos (2 ÷ 6.3)
71.5 (1 d.p.)
You know
opposite side = 3;
adjacent side = 4;
tan x = 3
4
x = tan-1 3
4
On your calculator:
x = shift tan (3 ÷ 4)
36.9 (1 d.p.)
