Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you know SOH CAH TOA, and you have cos given, then you can fill in the remaining legs and angle of the triangle using 'sin' and Pythagorean theorem. It might help if you start by drawing a right angled triangle. Call one of the angles for theta, and then fill in the one leg and the hypotenuse using the values given by cos (theta)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1369876988964:dw Now to find the 'vertical' side of the triangle you can use Pythagorean. And once you have that length you can fill in the other trig ratios sin, cos, tan tan = sin / cos csc = 1/sin sec = 1 / cos cot = 1 / tan

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are given cos (x) = 2/5, and you know cos (x) = adjacent / hyp, so there you are given 2 sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Think of trig functions as ratios. Cos (x) gives you a ratio of the adjacent (horz) side divided by the hyp side
