Angle of Elevation and Depression Right Triangle Trig

BAM! Mr. Tarrou. In this video we are goingto being doing some more right triangle trigonometry, or in other words we are going to be dealingwith sine, cosine, and tangent. SOHCAHTOA. And we are going to be doing these problemsspecifically with angles of elevation and depression. And of course I am yelling SOHCAHTOA,because SOH is sine which is opposite over…
