Hi, I'm new here but I haven't been in school for many years and recently I've been trying to remember some trig.

Something I find strange is plotting angles and calculating distances with known values.

I was hoping someone could help me remember, or rather, re-educate me on the following.

I've attached a picture.

45 degrees is a much simpler thing to plot since for ever x there is an equal y, 1,1 2,2 4,4 99,99 etc..

But when it comes to angles like 26.57 the plotting just doesn't seem correct on graph paper.

Essentially I can really trying to solve for something that looks like this. (I promise this is NOT homework)

Thanks to anyone in advance for assisting.
