Yes a tangent is a straight line thattouches a curve at only one point But there is a tangent ratio used in trigonometry

Trigonometry

The six basic functions of trigonometry are the sine, cosine, tangent, cosecant, secant, and cotangent functions. Abbreviated sin, cos, tan, csc, sec, cot.

tangent of 30 degrees = 1/2 of the square root of 3 = roughly 0.5773

usually its used to find a missing angle or length of a right triangle. Of course there is more to trigonometry. any way you can use sine, cosine, and tangent, to fine the missing angle or length

The basic circular functions are sine, cosine and tangent. Then there are their reciprocals and inverses.
