    So the opposite is the hypotenuse?

    opposite means the side opposite the angle

    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).

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

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

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

    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

    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.

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

    So would they be identical?
