Usually the angle of winder treads, I assume that is what youare talking about, is 30degrees as there are 3 treads to get round a 90degree turn.
The important thing from a saftey point of view is not to run the treads to a point but leave about 75mm /3 inches of tread at the narrowest part. more if you can work it and find the room

### How to use tan and cos

In any right angled triangle, for any angle:

1. The sine of the angle = the length of the opposite side. the length of the hypotenuse.
2. The cosine of the angle = the length of the adjacent side. the length of the hypotenuse.
3. The tangent of the angle = the length of the opposite side. the length of the adjacent side.

### A right angle triangle with length of AB 10cm and AC 20cm, how do I find the angle of BC

Assuming that the angle at A is the right angle, Pythagoras' theorem says that the length of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is the square root of the sum of the squares of the other two sides. In your case, AB and AC are 'the other two sides' and BC is the hypotenuse, so:

/ 2 2 /
length BC = V 10 + 20 = V 100 + 400

= V 500 = 22.36 cm

(To find the angle at C, you need trigonometry and is arc-tan(10/20)

and the angle at B is arc-tan(20/10) - 26.5 deg and 63.5 deg)

### If floor to floor (height) is a 100" and stairs

no calculator on me but the answer is tan(100/134.5) because tangent = a/b and b is always the letter opposite of the angle

### Why is tan90 not defined?

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.

### Find length of right triangle given one angle an one length

Formulas relating to right angled triangles are:
Sine = perpendicular divided by hypotenuse
Cosine = base divided by hypotenuse
Tangent = perpendicular divided by base
Sine Tangent and Cosine functions are all available in Excel

### I bought a protractor to measure the angle fo my stairs for baseboard. Now that I know thw angle how do I apply this to make the right angle cut?

Use a framing square with a set of angle gages (or stops) on it. The protractor can be used but it will take a lot of flipping and changing. The normal settings are 8" rise and 10" tread.
