    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
    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.
