1. Trig:

Hypotenuse = ?
Opposite = 6.5cm

Angle = 35 degrees

6.5 x tan (35) = 4.551348998

?

show us the question? would be easier
3. If you are working out the adjacent side of a right angled triangle you would have to do:
Opposite / tan(x = adjacent -- As its sOh cAh tOa (Capitals imagine are on top of an equation triangle)
6.5 / tan (35) = 9.28 cm

Just always write out sOh cAh tOa in your exam when answering trig questions.
