The point (2, 3) is on the terminal side of angle θ, in standard position. What are the values of sine, cosine, and tangent of θ? Make sure to show all work.

    plot the point |dw:1439842027695:dw| find h using pythagoras' theorem, then you can find all the trig ratios, as you have the lengths of the shorter sides.

    |dw:1439842175997:dw| you have the measurements on 2 short sides after plotting the point and drawing a sgement that connects it with the origin that segment (0, 0) to (2, 3) is the hypotenuse of a right triangle... so you need to use pythagoras' theorem to find the hypotenuse... that's the 1st step when you get it, leave it as a radical... then you have the reference angle, and you can find sin, cos and tan

    no, I have enough medals.... and the aim of Open Study is to assist learning rather than giving answers... if you are studying trigonometry I'd expect you have covered Pythagoras" theorem c^2 = a^2 + b^2 the segment joining (0, 0) and (2, 3) is c
