**C-ROC,**

Just reading that made my head hurt. I knew there was a math god on here somewhere :worship: .

Bones :dunce:

haha, math god...pshhhhhh...that's basic trig. Talk to my blind math teacher, he's a math god. Imagine doing all this stuff without a calculator, or even a pencil and paper, it's quite amazing.

151.27 just sounds right, and is right from the measurement you gave. You have 2 sides which almost equal the length of the other side, meaning you have 2 tiny angles at the base of the triangle, and one large one at the peak.

quick trig lesson for future reference and I'm bored as hell right now.

Only applies to right triangles (one 90* angle)

SOH (Sin of the angle [noted as sin 30* or whatever angle it is] = Opposite side / Hypotenuse side[opposite from 90* angle])

CHA (Cos = Hyp side / Adjacent side)

TOA (Tan = Opp side / Adj. side)

Just say the 3 - 3 capital letter things up there, it's a little way to remember it all. kinda like so-ka-toa.

If you have 2 sides, and no angles, you have to use the inverse of the sin, cos, tan (otherwise known at arcsin, arccos, arctan) function to find the angle jsut like they did to find the angle you needed...it's all on your calculator. If you understand this stuff you should find any length or angle you need. hehe, have fun.
