Hypotenuse,Adjacent and opposite in a triangle and these sides can be worked out

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

adjacent, opposite and hypotenuse

adjacent, opposite and hypotenuse

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

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

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.

In a right triangle, its Opposite/Hypotenuse I always use: Soh (sin, opposite/hypotenuse) Cah (cosine, adjacent/hypotenuse) Toa (tangent, opposite/adjacent) Hope this helped! :)
