Hi, I need to find the cos, tan, and sin of this triangle.
I am really having problems with these types of questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
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.
