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.

In a right angle triangle it is: cosine ratio = adjacent/hypotenuse

It is called the hypotenuse. The adjacent side is beneath it and the opposite side opposite it.

Given the reference perspective of a specific angle the sides are are the adjacent sides and the opposite side If we have a right triangle the longest side (opposite the right angle) is the hypotenuse.

If you mean cosine then it is angle ratio found in a right angle triangle which is adjacent/hypotenuse

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

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.

For a right angle triangle the trigonometrical ration is: tangent = opposite/adjacent

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

By using the tangent ratio of: opposite/tangent angle = adjacent which is the base

Opposite and adjacent sides.

is called the cosine ratio

In a right angle triangle it is: cosine ratio = adjacent/hypotenuse

cosine

That's the cosine of the angle to which the 'adjacent' side is adjacent.

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.

The ratio of the opposite side over the adjacent side is called the tangent.Expressing the fraction (opposite/adjacent) as a decimal, you can find the angle by looking in a table of values for the tangents of various angles.
