Best Answer

the sides can be found out by using trignometry.. sines and cosines..

sine of an agle is perpendicular/hypotenuse

cosine of an angle is base/hypotenuse..

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 opposite side of an adjacent?

The opposite side of an adjacent is the hypotenuse. Sin(q) = Opposite / Hypotenuse Cos(q) = Adjacent / Hypotenuse Tan(q) = Opposite / Adjacent Reference:

Definition of the 6 trigonometric functions?

The six main trigonometric functions are sin(x)=opposite/hypotenuse cos(x)=adjacent/hypotenuse tan(x)=opposite/adjacent csc(x)=hypotenuse/opposite cot(x)=adjacent/opposite sec(x)=hypotenuse/adjacent Where hypotenuse, opposite, and adjacent correspond to the three sides of a right triangle and x corresponds to an angle in that right triangle.

What are the names of the three sides of a right triangle?

adjacent, opposite and hypotenuse

How do you find the hypotenuse with a cosine and or sine?

For a right angle triangle:- hypotenuse = adjacent/cosine or hypotenuse = opposite/sine

Are the hypotenuse of a right triangle adjacent to the right angle?

First: there can only be one hypotenuse in a right angled triangle and it is always OPPOSITE the right angle, NEVER adjacent.
