ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
I must correct it to '\(\sin\) of an angle'.
 one year ago

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
You find the opposite side of that angle, and then divide that by the hypotenuse in the given triangle.

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
And that, ma'am, is the way to find \(\sin\) given an angle.

What do you have to find the \(\sin\) of?

What is the side opposite to \(\angle V\)?

What is the length given?

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Actually, 72 is not opposite to V. dw:1343316700534:dw

Also, hypotenuse is the longest side. Note that the thing I told you applies only for right triangles.

This is a useful mnemonic to remember fundamental trigonometric concepts. Classic: SOH CAH TAO Sin = Opposite side length / Hypotenuse side length Cosine = Adjacent side length / Hypotenuse side length Tangent = Opposite side length / Adjacent side length

Erm, it's SOH CAH TOA @dpflan

cerichardsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would it be 21 over 75

cerichardsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okk thanks for your help

dpflanBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
heh, right @ParthKohli, my mistake ;)

cerichardsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would cosX be 72/75
 one year ago

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Um, no. \[\cos = {{\text{adjacent} \over \text{hypotenuse}} \Longrightarrow \cos X = ? } \]
 one year ago

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Adjacent side is \(21\). Hypotenuse is the longest side i.e \(75\).

OK AND TAN X WOULD BE 21/72
 one year ago

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
tan = opposite/adjacent

sin theta= perpendicular/hypatenus
 one year ago

ali110Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Some people have curly brown hair,they paint black some=sine people have=perpendicular(from people)/hypatenus(from have) so sine=perpendicular/hypatanus curly=cosine brown hair=base(from brown)/hypataneus(from hair) so cosine=base/hypatenus they=tan paint black=perpendicular(from paint)/base(from black) so tan=perpendicular/base whole trignometry in just in line!!!!!!!!!! hahahahaahaha @cerichards
