I need some help understanding how to get the value of 'x'. The angle is 17 degrees and the book gives an answer of 0.90375.
Please see attachment for diagram.
<br>Because, in traingle QMC:
<br>angle QCM = theta = 17 degree
<br>MC = 1.125
<br>QM = 1.125*tan(17) = 1.125*0.30573 = ...
This solution contains step-by-step trigonometry calculations to determine value of x.
