$\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }$

i don't get it.

hmm which trigonometric ratio has the value ??? doesn't make ay sense ...hmm

anyway draw the triange |dw:1439262446415:dw| you can find 3rd side of right triangle by applying the Pythagorean theorem and i don't what they r looking for. there isn't any angle .....

|dw:1439272130777:dw| if you consider the angle which i have marked as theta then your ratio will tan theta =perpendicular /base=8/15
