    cos=Adjacent/Hypotenuse and sin=Opposite/Hypotenuse and tan=Opposite/ajacent so here you have given just adjacent and hypotenuse and you can fine opposite by Pythagourus Theorum.

    \(\sin A=\sqrt{1-\cos^2A}\) \(\sin A=\sqrt{1-(\large\frac{-7}{25})^2}\) \(\sin A=\sqrt{1-\large\frac{49}{625}}\) \(\sin A=\sqrt{\large\frac{625-49}{625}}\) \(\sin A=\sqrt{\large\frac{576}{625}}\) \(\sin A=\large\frac{24}{25}\) Nw can u find cos2A?

    its hard method friend. find sin by sin=perp/hyp we need perp so from cos=base/hyp here base=-7 and hyp=25 so now use Pythagoras theorem to find perp.

    hyp^2=base^+perp^2 25^2=-7^2+perp^2 625=49+perp^2 625-49=perp^2 576=perp^2 24=perp
