We started learning about Sin, Tan, and Cos yesterday and I learned that basically they are ratios for an angle. Sin stands for the opposite angle over hypotenuse, Tan stands for opposite angle over adjacent angle, and Cos stands for adjacent angle over hypotenuse. The longest side of a triangle is the hypotenuse, the side opposite the angle x, is the opposite angle, and the third side of the triangle, is called the adjacent angle.
