    Sine 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 \(\sin\theta = \dfrac{Opp}{Hyp}\) \(\cos\theta = \dfrac{Adj}{Hyp}\) \(\tan\theta = \dfrac{Opp}{Adj}\)

    Here, you have ratio of p and r. ( \(\dfrac{p}{r}\) ) Since neither p nor r is hypotenuse side, then you would want tangent, right?

    \[\tan\theta = \dfrac{Opp}{Adj}\] So we want \(p\) to be opposite. So what angle is opposite of side \(p\)?

    You have three angles: 90 deg, y deg, and x deg. Which angle is opposite from side p?

    Right. So we have tan and oppsite of p is x, So your answer is \(\boxed{\tan(x) = \dfrac{p}{r}}\)
