SOH CAH TOA Used to solve right triangles S- sine C- cosine T- tangent O- opposite; opposite from the angle A- adjacent; next to the angle H- hypotenuse; longest side of triangle
H OW TO SOLVE THE TRIANGLE You solve for sine when you have the opposite and hypotenuse. Solve for cosine when adjacent and hypotenuse is available. Solve for tangent when opposite and adjacent sides are available. Can also be used to find the length of the sides if the triangle!
S OLVING A SIDE USING SINE What is the distance from the bottom of the boat to the ocean floor?
S OLVING FOR AND ANGLE USING TANGENT Angle a can be solved by using tangent because the opposite and adjacent angles are available.
