Naming sides of a Right Angled Triangle Intro How to Identify Hypotenuse Opposite Adjacent Identify Sides in Triangles

Trigonometry Trigonometry means “triangle” and “measurement”. Adjacent Opposite x°x°x°x° hypotenuse Each side in a RAT is given a name according to its position R ight A ngle T riangle

Hypotenuse The Hypotenuse is the longest side in a Right Angle Triangle ( RAT ). hypotenuse It is opposite the right angle
