A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the tangent of a right triangle?

There is no such thing as the tangent of a triangle. Circles, angles, and conversations have tangents. In a right angled triangle, the tangent of one of the acute angles is the ratio of the length of the side opposite the angle to the length of the side adjacent to it.


What is the ratio of the opposite side to the ajacent side in a right triangle?

The tangent ratio.


What is the definition of secant-tangent angle?

The secant of an angle in a right triangle is the hypotenuse divided by the adjacent side. The tangent angle of a right triangle is the length of the opposite side divided by the length of the adjacent side.


What is the trig ratio which relates the opposite to the adjacent of a triangle?

the tangent of an angle is opposite over adjacent side of triangle


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

It is a tangent.


How do you use sine cosine and tangent?

They are used to find the angle or side measurement of a right triangle. For example, if 2 sides of a right triangle have known values and an angle has a known measurement, you can find the third side by using sine, cosine or tangent.


What is the definition of the tangent ratio for a right triangle?

The tangent ratio for a right angle triangle is opposite/adjacent.


What is the tangent of a triangle?

In that triangle, one of the angles must be a right angle, and another one of the angles must be marked with or the measurement of the angle. Tangent is the ratio of opposite side over adjacent side. The opposite and adjacent sides are determined by the position of the marked angle.


In a right triangle the ratio of the opposite side to the adjacent side?

In a right triangle, two of the angles are acute ones. Referring to one of the acute angles, the ratio of the side opposite it to the side adjacent to it is the tangent of the angle.


What is tangent in trigonometry?

Tangent is the ratio between perpendicular to the base of the triangle.


A polygon in which each side is tangent to the circle?

A square or an equilateral triangle for example when a circle is inscribed within it.


In a right triangle what is the ratio of the opposite side to the adjacent side?

The ratio is called the tangent of the angle. (also equal to sine/cosine)
