OOPS, sorry about that. Here you go:

Find tan G, Find cos F, Find sin G.

tan G = 45/24

cos F = 45/51

sin G = 45/51

Have you ever heard of
Otto Had A Heap Of Apples?
sin(theta) = Opposite/Hypotenuse
(Look at the first letters in the phrase with the trig definitions.)

Another one is
SOHCAHTOA
sin(theta) = Opposite/Hypotenuse
etc.
