8 – 6 The Sine and Cosine Ratios

Sine and Cosine Suppose you want to fine the legs, x and y, in a triangle. You can’t find these values using the tangent ratio because the only side you know it the hypotenuse. The ratios that relate are sine and cosine. Sine = Cosine = hypotenuse Opposite leg Adjacent Leg

Sine and Cosine We now have 3 useful trigonometric ratios given below Tan A = Sin A = Cos A = SOHCAHTOA
