This is a free lesson from our course in Trigonometry

 In this lesson, you'll learn how to relate the angles and sides of a right triangle. It is followed by explanation of the trigonometric functions. This is done with the help of several examples, video and explanation by instructor in own hand writing. It includes the practice questions with solutions to help solving math problems. In a right angle triangle, for angle , the name of the sides is: Hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) Adjacent (the side "next to" ) Opposite (the side farthest from the angle) (More text below video...)

(Continued from above) The trigonometric ratios sine , cosine , and tangent q (in short form- sin , cos , and tan ) are defined as:
sin  = opposite/hypotenuse
To help you remember the important facts, you can use SOH CAH TOA.
SOH stands for Sine equals Opposite over Hypotenuse i.e.,
sin  = opposite/hypotenuse,
CAH stands for Cosine equals Adjacent over Hypotenuse i.e.,
TOA stands for Tangent equals Opposite over Adjacent i.e.,
