@welshfella can u help me please??
The sine, cosine, and tangent ratios of a right triangle are as follows: \(\sin A = \dfrac{opp}{hyp} \) \(\cos A = \dfrac{adj}{hyp} \) \(\tan A = \dfrac{opp}{adj} \)
Let's see how the sine ratio applies to a right triangle.
|dw:1434743707356:dw|
Look at the figure above. For angle A, leg AC is called the adjacent leg. For angle A, leg BC is the opposite leg. The hypotenuse is side AB.
According to the definition of sine, \(\sin A = \dfrac{opp}{hyp} \) the sine of angle A is the ratio of the lengths of the opposite leg to the hypotenuse. That means that for the figure above, \(\sin A = \dfrac{BC}{AB} \)
Do you understand how the sine function works?
yes i do thank you (:
Now let's look at your problem. We are asked what the ratio r/p is equal to.
r and p are legs of the triangle. The only ratio (of sin, cos, and tan) that deals only with the lengths of legs (and not the hypotenuse) ids the tangent ratio. \(\tan A = \dfrac{opp}{adj} \) The tangent ratio is the ratio of the lengths of the opposite leg to the adjacent leg.
The ratio r/p must be a tangent because it involves only lengths of legs. Since the ratio r/p must be a tangent, it must be equal to \(\dfrac{opp}{adj} \) Now we look in the figure, and we see which angle is opposite leg r? It is angle y. Also, we look in the figure and we see that leg p is the adjacent leg top angle y. The means we must have the tangent of angle y.
oh ok i understand now thank you so much, (: btw @mathstudent55 the answer to the question would be (A) right? (:
yes
You're welcome.
