A square - but the "no angles" is the clincher. Unless (4) 90 degree angles aren't considered angles.

In any right angled triangle, for any angle:

- The sine of the angle = the length of the opposite side. the length of the hypotenuse.
- The cosine of the angle = the length of the adjacent side. the length of the hypotenuse.
- The tangent of the angle = the length of the opposite side. the length of the adjacent side.

A quadrilateral (4-sided). It has two parallel sides of different lengths. The other two sides just close the figure.

Either two or none, depending on the quadrilateral.

You should be aware that the adjective **adjacent** has no absolute meaning. It is relative to the angle you are considering.

Let some angle A in a right triangle. Let H be the measure of the hypotenuse. Do not confuse it with some height.

cos(A)=(measure of leg adjacent to A)/H

H= (measure of leg adjacent to A) / cos(A)

However what you call the opposite angle (the other angle I presume), is the complementary of of angle A. Call it angle B

In terms of that second angle

**H=(measure of leg adjacent to A)/ sin(B)**

What is adjacent to angle A is opposite to the complementary of A.

I think you should work a little more on the meaning of the words**adjacent **and **opposite** until you understand that they are relative concepts. **They mean nothing until you spell out what angle you are looking at. **Without proper understanding of these two concepts you will not be able to use correctly that mnemonic device which you have mangled (BTW)

I do not know it what language you have transcribed the mnemonic , but in English the device is called**SOH- CAH-TOA **

**SOH** means: To calculate the **Sine of an angle** divide the measure of the leg **Opposite to the angle** by the measure of the **H**ypotenuse.

**CAH** means: To calculate the **Cosine of an angle **divide the measure of the **side Adjacent to the angle **by the measure of the **Hypotenuse.**

**TOA **means: To calculate the **Tangent of an angle **divide the measure of the side **Opposite to the angle** by the measure of the side **Adjacent to the angle**.

Let some angle A in a right triangle. Let H be the measure of the hypotenuse. Do not confuse it with some height.

cos(A)=(measure of leg adjacent to A)/H

H= (measure of leg adjacent to A) / cos(A)

The tangent of an angle (in a right triangle) is defined to be the length of the side opposite the angle, divided by the length of the side adjacent to the angle (that is not the hypoteneuse). As the angle approaches 90 degrees, the length of the opposite side gets very large and the length of the adjacent side nears 0. At 90 degrees, the length of the adjacent side is 0, and division by 0 is not defined, so the tangent of 90 degrees is not defined.

Hello,

Some wires got crossed here. A cube is a solid (a 3D object), whereas a rectangle and a square are 2D figures. You cannot compare a 2D figure with a 3D figure any more than you can compare say a parking lot and a highrise building.

A rectangle is a quadrilateral (closed polygon with 4 sides). In a rectangle, opposite sides are parallel and equal in length. In a rectangle all 4 angles are equal, each measuring 90 degrees.

All this is true for a square, except that all sides are now equal. So you can say that a square is a special kind of rectangle, namely, a rectangle with equal sides.

Hope it helps.

A **linear pair of angles** is formed when two lines intersect. Two angles are said to be **linear** if they are adjacent angles formed by two intersecting lines. The measure of a straight angle is 180 degrees, so a linear pair of angles must add up to 180 degrees.

A pair of angles is said to be**vertical** if the angles share the same vertex and are bounded by the same pair of lines but are opposite to each other. Such angles are congruent and thus have equal measure

A pair of angles is said to be

Hi rowanwah

The sine of an angle is only applicable is a right triangle. If you just want a number, ie, the actual value of the sine 15 degrees you can look it up on Google. Do a search for "sine and cosine functions"

If you want the mathematical description of the sine of an angle it is described as follows

In a triangle ABC, there are 3 angles angle A, angle B and angle C. There are also 3 sides, Side AB, Side AC and side BC. The sine of angle A is equal to the side opposite Angle A divided by the Hypotenuse (the longest side opposite the right angle)

The Cosine of angle A is equal to the side adjacent to Angle A divided by the hypotenuse

Hope this helps Loringh PS Please leave a rating for me Thanks
