OOPS, sorry about that. Here you go:

Find tan*G,*Find cos*F,*Find sin*G.* - Apr 19th 2007, 02:58 PMThePerfectHacker
tan G = 45/24

cos F = 45/51

sin G = 45/51 - Apr 19th 2007, 03:03 PMsteventhedog
Awesome, just what I need perfect hacker. Thank you so much for your help.

Have you ever heard of

Otto Had A Heap Of Apples?

sin(theta) = Opposite/Hypotenuse

cos(theta) = Adjacent/Hypotenuse

tan(theta) = Opposite/Adjacent

(Look at the first letters in the phrase with the trig definitions.)

Another one is

SOHCAHTOA

sin(theta) = Opposite/Hypotenuse

etc.
