Find the solution $$\displaystyle{\sin{{Y}}}={\cos{{\left({Y}+{20}°\right)}}}$$

In a right triangle the two acute angles add up to 90°. This means that the cosine of one angle is the sine of the other. So Y+Y+20=90, 2Y=70, Y=35°. There are other solutions but both the angles will not be acute.

Aidan knows that the observation deck on the Vancouver Lookout is 130 m above the ground. He measures the angle between the ground and his line of sight to the observation deck as $$\displaystyle{77}^{\circ}$$. How far is Aidan from the base of the Lookout to the nearest metre? asked 2021-03-25
Find a general solution to $$\displaystyle{y}{''}+{4}{y}'+{3.75}{y}={109}{\cos{{5}}}{x}$$
To solve this, the first thing I did was find the general solutionto the homogeneous equivalent, and got
$$\displaystyle{c}_{{1}}{e}^{{-{5}\frac{{x}}{{2}}}}+{c}_{{2}}{e}^{{{3}\frac{{x}}{{2}}}}$$
Then i used the form $$\displaystyle{K}{\cos{{\left({w}{x}\right)}}}+{M}{\sin{{\left({w}{x}\right)}}}$$ and got $$\displaystyle-{2.72}{\cos{{\left({5}{x}\right)}}}+{2.56}{\sin{{\left({5}{x}\right)}}}$$ as a solution of the nonhomogeneous ODE asked 2020-12-27
