Lesson 5.2 Apply the tangent ratio Georgia Performance Standards: MM2G2a, MM2G2b, MM2G2c

2
Vocabulary Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that deals with the relationships between the sides and angles of triangles and the calculations based on these relationships. A trigonometric ratio is a ratio of the lengths of two sides in a right triangle. In a right triangle, the ratio of the length of the leg opposite an acute angle to the length of the leg adjacent to the angle is constant for a given angle measure. This ratio is called the tangent of the angle.

3
Tangent Ratio: Let triangle ABC be a right triangle with acute angle A. The tangent of angle A (written as tan A) is defined as follows: A B C
