what's an easy way to figure out the opposite or adjacent?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The two sides making an angle are adjacent to the angle. The third side, the one that doesn't touch the angle, is the opposite side.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The adjacent leg is a non-hypotenuse side that shares the angle. For instance, \(\angle BAC\) has the adjacent side \(\overline{BA}\) and thus opposite side \(\overline{BC}\).
anonymous
  • anonymous
opposite is across from the angle and adjacent is the sides touching the angle.
anonymous
  • anonymous
but they're both touching the angle
anonymous
  • anonymous
but that's the hypotenuse?
anonymous
  • anonymous
opposite and adjacent sides are both touching the angle
anonymous
  • anonymous
oo. sry
anonymous
  • anonymous
That was a bad example. \(\overline{BC}\) is not touching \(\angle BAC\).
anonymous
  • anonymous
what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yakeyglee can you explain it for 5 year olds because i don't get what you typed
anonymous
  • anonymous
The adjacent leg is a non-hypotenuse side that shares the angle. For instance, ∠BAC has the adjacent side BA−−− and thus opposite side BC−−−.
anonymous
  • anonymous
please come back PLEASE!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you see how \(\overline{BC}\) is NOT touching \(\angle BAC\)?
anonymous

What do you mean just part of the angle? The angle formed by points B, A, and C, with A being the vertex. The angle at point A.
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1322534541597:dw| like this?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct!
anonymous
  • anonymous
However, we're considering just the angle part, not the sides itself. The actual angle part (where the bend is) is opposite \(\overline{BC}\), yes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes... but how do you know that bend part is the opposite? what about the other side where C is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1322534666075:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
That one is adjacent to \(\overline{BC}\) because it literally lies right next to \(\overline{BC}\).
anonymous
  • anonymous
Whereas \(\angle BAC\) does not.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so bc is where your angle lies? why not ba?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\(\overline{BC}\) is the leg next to \(\angle BCA\) so thus it is the adjacent side to \(\angle BCA\). The other leg (\(\overline{BA}\)) is NOT next to \(\angle BCA\) so therefore it is the opposite leg.
anonymous
  • anonymous
why is bca important? is it because it has the hypotenuse?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, because it's an angle in the triangle that's not the right-angle!
anonymous
  • anonymous
huh?? what about bac?
anonymous
  • anonymous
please don't give up on me :( i have a huge test tomorrow and i'll get an F if i don't get this

Look at this picture and just memorize which sides correspond to which terms relative to the labeled angle. Beware that the letters are labeled slightly different in this picture than yours (so you must be able to identify which is which without angles and sides labeled -- if someone points to an angle in a right triangle, you should be able to say which is the adjacent and which is the opposite.). I honestly don't know how to explain this any clearer. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_mVk-nEnsSXI/S_UDj_mE8lI/AAAAAAAAADI/X9ULOiOGIJ0/s1600/tric.png

The labeled angle in that image would be your \(\theta\).
