## anonymous one year ago whats a tangent?

1. anonymous

2. Setsuna-Yuregeshi

$Tangent = \frac{ Opposite }{ Adjacent }$

3. anonymous

The way I remember Sin, Cosine, and Tangent is SOH - Sin is Opposite / Hypotenuse CAH - Cosine is Adjacent / Hypotenuse TOA - Tangent is Opposite / Adjacent

4. Setsuna-Yuregeshi

You divide the side opposite to the one your trying to find the tangent of by the side adjacent to it.
