In this lecture we looked at how to use SOH CAH TOA to find the missing angles in our right triangle and saw how we can also use the angle information to find the length of our sides.
What’s your favorite mnemonic for remembering SOH CAH TOA, or do you just remember it as is?
For your challenge, we want to know if our player can disable the turret given their rather poorly designed hacking device.
- The turret is 4 units off the ground.
- The hacking device has a maximum range of 6 units (the hypotenuse of our triangle)
- The device stops working if tilted beyond 45 degrees.
Find the angle that the player has to point the device and give your answer to 2 decimal places.
Then confirm whether it’s possible to disable the turret (is that angle less than or greater than 45 degrees).
Post your answers below and remember to use spoiler tags.
