This ratio is the tangent of the angle.If the triangle is a right angled triangle and the angle in question is not the right angle, then it is the tangent of the angle in question.

Sine ratio = opposite/hypotenuse

Its a ratio in a right angle triangle, cos angle = adjacent / hypotonuse.

In a right triangle, the cosine of an angle is defined as the ratio of the adjacent side of that angle to the hypotenuse.
