Math Trigonometry Trigonometric Functions: Soh-Cah-Toa: shows how to relate the sides of a right triangle using the hypotenuse, adjacent and or opposite sides

In a way it's connected to pythagorean theorem. you find the change in both coordinates (the side lengths) and then find the square root of their sum (hypotenuse).

Tree Height sent us to triangles! Pulled out the protractor n worked the angles. Then we got a foretaste of sin cos tag! Girls took the trip but I enjoyed it! Triangle showing Opposite, Adjacent and Hypotenuse

This is a diagram created on power point that shows the relationships between the legs and hypotenuse of special right triangles. Specific relationships are color coded for easy identification.

The equation can be written in parametric form using the trigonometric functions sine and cosine as where t is a parametric variable in the range 0 to interpreted geometrically as the angle that the ray from (a, b) to (x, y) makes with the x-axis.

Example Problem : In a right triangle, the base is 6 cm and the perpendicular is 8 cm. Find the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle? Solution: By using Pythagoras Theorem, + = 62 + 82 = 36 + 64 h = 10 Hypotenuse is 10 cm
