Using Tangent to find a missing side of a right triangle

Trig functions can be used with right triangles to find missing sides.
This video works with the trig functions,sine.cosine, and tangent
Sine = Opposite over hypotenuse
Cosine = Adjacent over hypotenuse
Tangent = Opposite over adjacent
With this problem you are given a right triangle with an angle given and one side length.
The trig function tangent is used because you have opposite over adjacent.
