    @misty1212 is absolutetly correct in this sense: that the trigonometric ratios in a right angled triangle express the ratios of sides to angles, and therefore none of these relationships are left out. So, therefore, the answer must be : there is no different calculation in finding the missing side lengths and angle measures in a right triangle using the trigonometric functions.

    You will be aware of the typical three trig ratios: sin, cos and tan which express the relationships between the three sides. (O/H)(A/H) and (O/A).
