Homework Check...

Hey, I thought it would be a good idea to have a post every night, that anyone can post, dealing with the questions the class is having difficulties with. The first person to post it will put their questions in the post and everyone else can then further put any other questions in as comments. Mr. K would then have an update every night on what we are all having difficulties on before the beginning of the next class. This way he can prepare or set aside a time to explain them. I hope to hear all of your opinions on this tomorrow, including of course Mr. K's.
P.S. Question 5-as to why we divide y or x by the value of each side of the triangle. As well as questions 8,10, and 11. (exercise 2)

Brilliant idea by Kasia...I don't understand question 11 either.

Brilliant idea Kasia!

Three of those questions relate to similar triangles. The question about tangent (#8) can be answered by recalling that tan θ = sinθ/cosθ. ;-)

We'll start tomorrow with the questions you've raised here. Thanks for starting this new thread in our blog. ;-)

Anyways,I still dont get the idea behind question 10.
