I'm confused. I thought the opposite side was supposed to be across from this angle
http://prntscr.com/7sd0ug
and the adjacent side was right next to it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In triangleDEF, what is sin D, in simplified form? A. 3 over 4 B. 4 over 5 C. 5 over 4 D. 3 over 5 Correct Answer: B — 4 over 5 Explanation: In triangleDEF, sin D in simplified form is 4 over 5. The sine ratio is the length of the side opposite the angle divided by the length of the hypotenuse. In triangleDEF, the hypotenuse is segment d e, which has length 25, and the leg opposite angleD is segment e f, which has length 20. So the correct ratio is sin D = 20 over 25, which simplifies to 4 over 5.
