the last drawing is for future purposes like when you are given a problem in coordinate system instead of just in free space like you have now.

This is a challenge. I already know the answer. Check my profile if you don't believe me; I have corrected many people myself.

you've said in this post that I am wrong http://openstudy.com/users/lollygirl217#/updates/55b05ff4e4b071e6530d6d19 but did not provide an explanation or alternative hypothesis why that is so.

I provided a derivation of tan = sin/cos

Please do not trick people into making your posts a challenge question for them to solve when it may be your own homework to solve. We are here to strengthen people's understanding of concepts and not provide them answers to their own problems.
