In this triangle, since two of the three sides are unknown, we cant use Pythagoras Theorem. We solve this question using
In triangle ABC, we have tan A = a/b
Since b = 7, and angle A = 60 degrees, tan 60 deg = a/7
a = 7 tan 60 = 7 * sqrt 3 = 12.12 cm (Approximately).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 7:27 pm ad1c9bdddf>
