1. ## trig

hello, i have a right angle triangle with side lengths of 9.3 and 7.5 and an unknown hypotenuse. how would i use trig to solve this triangle

No need for trig ratios, use the Pythagorean theorem

$c=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}$

3. ## angles

sorry, by solving this triangle i meant the 2 unknown angles along with the unknown side length

Ok, draw your triangle, and then use the fact that for an angle theta

$\theta=\arcsin\bigg(\frac{o}{h}\bigg)$

and so forth...are you aware of this method?

And you still need to find the hypotenuse

$c=\sqrt{9.3^2+7.5^2}\approx{11.95}$
