This ratio is called the sine ratio for a right triangle. A simple way to remember this is by using the mnemonic 'SOHCAHTOA', where SOH stands for sine equals the ratio opposite side/ hypotenuse, COH is cosine equals adjacent side/hypotenuse, and TOA is tangent equals opposite side/adjacent side.

Hypotenuse


Is it true the sine ratio relates the length of the leg the angle that is in question to the length of the hypotenuse?

Yes... opposite an angle of a right triangle to the length of the triangle's hypotenuse.


Find hypotenuse only using opposite and angle?

In a right angles triangle the sides are named the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) and the other two sides are called the adjacent and the opposite sides. 1) The sine of an angle = length of the opposite side ÷ length of the hypotenuse. 2) The cosine of an angle = length of the adjacent side ÷ length of the hypotenuse. Using 1) The length of the hypotenuse = length of the opposite side ÷ the sine of the angle. Using tables or a calculator obtain the sine of the angle and divide this into the length of the opposite side. The result will be the length of the hypotenuse.


In a right triangle the ratio of the length of the side opposite an acute angle to the length of the hypotenuse?

sin θ : 1 = the length of opposite side to angle θ : the length of the hypotenuse


What is the ratio of the length of the opposite leg to the length of the hypotenuse?

sine


Is a ratio of the length of the opposite leg to the length of the hypotenuse?

Sine


How do I find the length of the hypotenuse with one leg equalling 12 and the opposite angle being 30 degrees?

Rearrange the sine ratio of sine = opposite/hypotenuse: hypotenuse = opposite/sine hypotenuse = 12/sine 30 degrees = 24 Therefore the hypotenuse is 24 units in length.


If you divide length of the opposite side of an angle in a right triangle by the length of the hypotenuse what value do you get?

You get the sine of the angle. For a right triangle: sin (x) = opposite/hypotenuse cos (x) = adj./hypotenuse tan (x) = opposite/adj


How do you find the unknown side of a right triangle given the length of another side and an angle?

opposite/hypotenuse = sin(x) adjacent/hypotenuse = cos(x) opposite/adjacent = tan(x) where 'x' is the angle in question.
