sorry for the semi dumb question, but can anyone help me.

I was wondering how to you find the sides of a right triangle if all you know is the angles.

For example. i know that Theta (θ) is 10° therefor the angles are 10°, 90°, 80°. what would the sides be?




(sorry if i posted in the wrong area i am new to this web site.)

You don't need to know that for GMAT. What you need to memorize is right triangles with integers:

3:4:5 - 30:60:90 (angles) - the most important right triangle in GMAT
5:12:13
6:8:10
8:15:17
