Not always. You could form a kite. That means that the two adjacent sides would be congruent, not the two opposite sides.
prove any two adjacent triangles as congruent
If you mean 'sohcahtoa' then it is a memory aid for working out the properties of right angle triangles as follows:- Sine = opposite/hypotenuse Cosine = adjacent/hypotenuse Tangent = opposite/adjacent
In trigonometry, when we look at right triangles, the cosine is the ratio of the length of the adjacent side to the length of the hypotenuse.
you use the the 3 trigonometry functions , sin=opposite divided by hypotenuse cos=adjacent divided by hypotenuse tan=opposite divided by adjacent these are used to work out angles and side lengths in right angle triangles only!!! sine,cosine,tangent :)
an adjacent corresponding angle is an angle which is adjacent to a particular angle as well as corresponding.
The cosine of an angle is the ratio of the adjacent side to the hypotenuse only when the angle is in a right triangle. (Otherwise, how would you know which side is the "hypotenuse" ?)
The ratios pertaining to right angled triangles are called trigonometrical ratios.They are- sine x = Opposite side/Hypotenuse cosine x= Adjacent side/Hypotenuse tangent x= Opposite side/Adjacent side Cosecant x= Hypotenuse/Opposite side secant x= Hypotenuse/Adjacent side cotangent x= Adjacent side/Opposite side Here, x is one of the angles in the trangle except the right-angled one.
Sin= Opposite/Hypotenuse Cos= Adjacent/Hypotenuse Tan= Opposite/Adjacent
Opposite over hypotenuse. Sin=opposite/hypotenuse cos=adjacent/hypotenuse tan=opposite/adjacent
Nearly! The cosine is the adjacent side (ie not the opposite side) divided by the hypotenuse.
The opposite side of an adjacent is the hypotenuse. Sin(q) = Opposite / Hypotenuse Cos(q) = Adjacent / Hypotenuse Tan(q) = Opposite / Adjacent Reference: http://easycalculation.com/trigonometry/triangle-angles.php
