The answer is 12.04 units.You can solve this using trigonometric functions, because the given is a right triangle. One technique that helps is SOHCAHTOASOH CAH TOASinθ = O/H Cosθ = A/H Tanθ = O/ = SinθC = CosθT = TanθO = opposite side (side across from the angle given)H = hypotenuse (the longest side or the side opposite the right angle) = Adjacent Side (of the given angle)Now, taking that figure into consideration would be:θ=24°A = 11H = xNow all you have to do is to select the formula that has all of the components of da. In this case it would be CAH. Now all you do is input what you know and solve for what you don't know.CAHCosθ = /HCos24 = 11/H (Transposition of the H and Cos24)H = 11/Cos24H = 12.04 units
