Q:

I think the answe is c can somebody help me out ?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:
angle V = 60 degrees
angle U = 90 degrees
angle W = 30 degrees
This is the last option

Explanation:
Part a: getting angle U:
Let's start by doing the Pythagorean check:
hypotenuse = sqrt [(side1)^2 + (side2)^2]
side1 = 3√3 and side2 = 3 cm
Substitute in the above equation:
hypotenuse = sqrt [ (3√3)^2 + (3)^2]
hypotenuse = 6 cm
This proves that the given triangle is right-angled at U
Therefore:
measure angle U = 90 degree

Part b: getting angle V:
cos theta = adjacent / hypotenuse
theta is angle V
adjacent side = 3 cm
hypotenuse = 6 cm
Therefore:
cos V = 3/6 = 1/2
V = 60 degrees

Part c: getting angle W:
We can get this using two methods:
Method 1:
Angles of triangle = 180
180 = 90 + 60 + angle W
angle W = 180 - (90+60) = 30 degrees
Method 2:
cos theta = adjacent / hypotenuse
theta is W
adjacent = 3√3 cm
hypotenuse = 6 cm
Therefore:
cos W = 3√3 / 6 = √3 / 2
W = 30 degrees

Hope this helps :)
