### The triangle below gives the lengths of all three sides, and asks to find the angle. If this problem is to be solved using a tan ratio, what fraction will be created for the inverse tan calculation?

Explanation
When finding the inverse, we create a fraction from the two sides. Sin = 0pp/Hyp, Cos = Adj/Hyp, and Tan = Opp/Adj. We remember this using SOH CAH TOA.
