Using ∡C of △CBA shown below, create three different trigonometric ratios using sine, cosine, and tangent. You will need to create your own angle and side measures for this task. For full credit, please provide both the ratio and work used to solve for a missing piece of the triangle. Round all solutions to the nearest hundredth.
