Triangles Slopes and Basic Trig.
I have been trying to wrap my head around this. I am working on a game and now am stuck. It has been too long since trig to remember how to do this, or even check my work. So, boiled down I have an angle, and need the rise/run with the rise (y) being 1. So 1/x.
On some scratch paper I came up with
25* = 1/x
25*x = 1
x* = 1/25 then multiplied by 180, came up with 7.2 as either hypotenuse, or the bottom.
Then I tried out instead of starting with 25*, used 25*/180* and did the math ending up with 2.2.
I don't know if the answers are right or what they correspond to, everything on google confused me because I cant figure out what the results refer to.
Note: * is used as degrees.
Thanks, anyone have insight?
