The sides of the right triangle are: the side opposite the acute angle , the side adjacent to the acute angle , and the hypotenuse of the right triangle. The trigonometric functions are sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant. opp adj hyp θ Trigonometric Functions sin = cos = tan = csc = sec = cot = opp hyp adj hyp adj opp adj

Example: sin = cos(90 ), for 0 < < 90 Note that and 90 are complementary angles. Side a is opposite θ and also adjacent to 90 ○ – θ. a hyp b θ 90 ○ – θ sin = and cos (90 ) =. So, sin = cos (90 ).
