No. You don't. An angle of "27m" makes no sense, that's a length measurement. You have a triangle with [b]legs[b] of length 27 m and 32 m. The hypotenuse certainly DOES have a value- you just aren't given it. You could calculate it by using the Pythagorean theorem but don't, it is not necessary for this problem.

Do you at least remember that "tan= opposite side/adjacent side"? Since you are given those lengths, divide to find the tangent of the angle and then take thethis indicates that i have to use the Tangent function. How would i go about solving this?

(I dont actually need the answer, just the method.)inversetangent or 'arctangent", presumably on your calculator. Be sure your calculator is in "degree" mode. Your calculator will probably give you a decimal answer. Since there are 60 minutes in one degree, multiply the decimal part by 60 to find the minutes.
