cos (225 degrees) = the xcoordinate of the point on the unit circle.

im confused though, because if its a right triangle, and the reference angle is 45 degrees, then the opposite angle is also 45 degrees, making it a 454590 triangle and the two legs' side lengths are the same so they would both be dw:1359842106830:dw

\(\large cos(225 ^\circ)=\frac{\sqrt2}{2} \) \(\large tan (225 ^\circ)=\frac{\frac{\sqrt2}{2}}{\frac{\sqrt2}{2}}=1 \)
