    Trig:

    Hypotenuse = ?
    Opposite = 6.5cm
    Adjacent = y cm

    Angle = 35 degrees

    6.5 x tan (35) = 4.551348998

    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.
