    I can help you, but your problem is incomplete. There is something missing in the question.

    Maybe there is a symbol on the screen that can't be simply copied and pasted. Read the question in the post and compare it to the question you have on your screen. There is something missing.

    The main three trig ratios are since, cosine, and tangent. SOHCAHTOA helps you remember what the ratios are using initials: SOH: \(\sin A = \dfrac{opp}{hyp} \) CAH: \(\cos A = \dfrac{adj}{hyp} \) TOA: \(\tan A = \dfrac{opp}{adj} \)
