Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sinA = opposite/hypotenuse = a/c cosA = adjacent/hypotenuse = b/c tanA = opposite/adjacent = a/b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure either. I think you can construct a line from the right angle perpendicular to the hypotenuse, but I don't know the name for it. dw:1435110227632:dw
