@KierseyClemons did you pick AB/BC for the first one? That's not correct for tanB... tan is opposite/adjacent  the opposite is AC, the adjacent is AB.

For that you might want to use a 306090 triangle: http://www.freemathhelp.com/images/lessons/triangle3060903.gif

Cos 30, cos 60, sin30, sin60 ... these should all be easy to find from that picture. If you need cos 45 or sin45, use this: http://www.biology.arizona.edu/biomath/tutorials/trigonometric/graphics/trig_45_45_90.gif
