Help me through it? :)

What is the relationship of sides for sin?

- anonymous

Tan?

- TheSmartOne

like how
tan = opposite/adjacent
what is it for sin and cos?

- anonymous

Im not sure

here is a bigger picture:

So the opposite is the hypotenuse?

- TheSmartOne

opposite means the side opposite the angle

- anonymous

Oh okay and i the picture provided that would be C, right?

- anonymous

Im still not understanding what relationship do the ratios of sin x and cos y share.

These are my choices
The ratios are both identical (3 over 5 and 3 over 5).
The ratios are opposites (negative 3 over 5 and 3 over 5).
The ratios are reciprocals (3 over 5 and 5 over 3).
The ratios are both negative (negative 5 over 3 and negative 3 over 5).

- TheSmartOne

so from one of my earlier drawings, it says that sin is opposite over hypotenuse
what is the side opposite of angle x?

- Valpey

what is the length of the side opposite angle x?
what is the length of the hypotenuse?

- Valpey

Then ask:
What is the length of the side adjacent to angle y?
Is the hypotenuse the same?

- anonymous

what is the length of the side opposite angle x? 3
what is the length of the hypotenuse? 5
What is the length of the side adjacent to angle y? 4
Is the hypotenuse the same? no

- Valpey

The side adjacent to y is different than the side adjacent to x. Both have the same hypotenuse because they come from the same right triangle.

- TheSmartOne

great job valpey :)

- anonymous

No entiendo

- TheSmartOne

|dw:1435701301335:dw|
However, one of the sides is the hypotenuse in a right triangle, so the other side would be the adjacent side

- anonymous

I still am not grasping, Im sorry

So would they be identical?

- TheSmartOne

correct

- anonymous

AWESOME THANK YOU

- TheSmartOne

np :)
