Finding the Angles When Two Sides Are Known: Practice

Find the measurement for both angles of each right triangle. Round off each answer to the nearest 1/2° .
    Question                      Answer

(1) Opp = 22"       Hyp = 34"          40.5° /49.5° 

(2) Adj = 19.375"   Opp = 27.5"        55° /35° 

(3) Adj - 64.9375"  Hyp = 78.4375"     34° /56° 

(4) Opp = 14.5"     Adj = 29.685"      26° /64° 

(5) Hyp = 3'        Opp = 2.5'         56.5° /33.5°
