You have a piece of 8-inch-wide metal which you are going to make into a gutter by bending up 3 inches on each side

Questions are found on the image.

The point (x,y) is the endpoint of the angled 3-unit line segment (on the right). Imagine if the figure were plotted on a coordinate plane, the origin would be where the 2-unit and the 3-unit line segment intersect. Theta is the angle made between the angled segment and the y-axis. I tried to upload a photo but I'm not able to. I hope this helps. Thanks for the comment!
