Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sine is ratio of opposite side by hypotenuse side. Cosine is ratio of adjacent sides to hypotenuse side. Tangent is ratio of opposite side to adjacent side. In other word, saying you have this triangle dw:1433874198946:dw Then \(\sin\theta = \dfrac{Opp}{Hyp}\) \(\cos\theta = \dfrac{Adj}{Hyp}\) \(\tan\theta = \dfrac{Opp}{Adj}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here, you have ratio of p and r. ( \(\dfrac{p}{r}\) ) Since neither p nor r is hypotenuse side, then you would want tangent, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\tan\theta = \dfrac{Opp}{Adj}\] So we want \(p\) to be opposite. So what angle is opposite of side \(p\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have three angles: 90 deg, y deg, and x deg. Which angle is opposite from side p?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right. So we have tan and oppsite of p is x, So your answer is \(\boxed{\tan(x) = \dfrac{p}{r}}\)
