In a right-angled triangle, the sides and the angles are connected by three trigonometric ratios.



The three trig ratios are:



A quick way to remember this is to memorise the word




Use the side lengths of this triangle to state the value of cosθº ?




Label the sides adjacent, opposite and hypotenuse in relation to the angle θº.





The side adjacent to the angle θ has length 3.

The hypotenuse has length 5.


The correct trig ratio is COS so cos θº= 3/5
