6.

a

34 1.2 cm

Calculate a.Solution:

The missing side is the opposite side and we have the adjacent and angle, hence, tan = tan34 =

7. Find x and H in the right triangle below.

Solution:

x= x = 13 (2 significant digits)

H= H= 8.1 (2 significant digits)

8. Find the lengths of all sides of the right triangle below if its area is 400.

Solution:

Area = (1/2)(2x)(x) = 400 Solution for x: x = 20x2 = 40 H = x sqrt(5) H= 20 sqrt(5) Pythagoras theorem: (2x)2 + (x)2 = H2

9. BH is perpendicular to AC. Find x the length of BC.

Solution:

BH perpendicular to AC, means that triangles ABH and HBC are right triangles. Hence, tan(39o) = 11 / AH or AH = 11 / tan(39o) HC = 19 - AH = 19 - 11 / tan(39 ) Solution for x and substitution for HC: x = sqrt [ 112 + (19 - 11 / tan(39o) )2 ] = 12.3 (rounded to 3 significant digits) 10. The area of a right triangle is 50. One of its angles is 45o. Find the lengths of the sides and hypotenuse of the triangle.Solution:o

Pythagoras theorem applied to right triangle HBC: 112 + HC2 = x2

The triangle is right and the size one of its angles is 45o; the third angle has a size 45o and therefore the triangle is right and isosceles. Let x be the length of one of the sides and H be the length of the hypotenuse. Area = (1/2)x2 = 50 , solve for x: x = 10 We now use Pythagoras theorem to find: H: x2 + x2 = H2 Solution for H: H = 10 sqrt(2) Maths is easy and fun Page 6

11. ABC is a right triangle with a right angle at A. Find x the length of DC.

Solution:

Since angle A is right, both triangles ABC and ABD are right and therefore we can apply Pythagoras theorem. 142 = 102 + AD2 , 162 = 102 + AC2 Also x = AC - AD = sqrt( 162 - 102 ) - sqrt( 142 - 102 ) = 2.69 (rounded to 3 significant digits) 12. Given the following right triangle, find tan A.

Solution:

tan A = tan = 0

Solution:

The line passes through the points (0, 4) and (1, 1). So when the x-coordinate goes up by 1, the y-coordinate goes down by 3. So the gradient is
