2. Which side two sides require the use of the Sine ratio?

  • Opposite and Hypotenuse
  • Adjacent and Opposite
  • Adjacent and Hypotenuse

3. How is Sine used in relation to the two sides?

  • Sine= Adjacent x Opposite
  • Sine= Hypotenuse x Opposite
  • Sine=Opposite / Hypotenuse
  • Sine= Adjacent x Hypotenuse
  • Sine= Hypotenuse / Opposite

4. How is Cosine used in relation to the two sides?

  • Cosine= Opposite / Adjacent
  • Cosine= Hypotenuse/Adjacent
  • Cosine= Adjacent / Hypotenuse
  • Cosine= Opposite x Adjacent
  • Cosine= Opposite x Hypotenuse

5. How is Tangent used in relation to two sides?

  • Tangent= Opposite / Hypotenuse
  • Tangent= Adjacent x Opposite
  • Tangent= Hypotenuse / Adjacent
  • Tangent= Opposite / Adjacent
  • Tangent= Adjacent x Hypotenuse
