    Sin Cos Tan are these special functions that give you a relationship between angles and the ratio of sides in a triable

    The sin of an angle if the angle is part of a right angle triangle then the Sin(angle) = opposite/hypotenuese

    dont get confused with the notation Sin(angle) means that there is some special function that is operating on this angle that results in the the ratio which is oppositesidelength/hypotenuesesidelength

    Sin cos and tan are functions, how these functions work and what goes into them you dont know yet, are u familiar with this kind of notation?

    like f(x) or g(x) or f(x,y)

    means function of x, or another func of x or another functio nof x and y

    opposite side means the side that is opposite the angle, adj side is the side that is along the angle and the hypotenues is always the side opposite the 90 degree angle

    remember cos angle = adj/hyp, identify whats the adj side and the hyp, with respect to the angle you are picking
