So if we have any two of them, we can find the third. From our calculator we find that tan 60° is 1.733, so we can write Transposing: which comes out to 26, which matches the figure above.

For every trigonometry function such as tan, there is an inverse function that works in reverse.When used this way we can also graph the tangent function. If you're seeing this message, it means we're having trouble loading external resources on our website.In any right angled triangle, for any angle: The sine of the angle = the length of the adjacent side So in shorthand notation: sin = o/h cos = a/h tan = o/a Often remembered by: soh cah toa Example Find the length of side x in the diagram below: The angle is 60 degrees.We are given the hypotenuse and need to find the adjacent side.These inverse functions have the same name but with 'arc' in front. When we see "arctan A", we interpret it as "the angle whose tangent is A" We use it when we know what the tangent of an angle is, and want to know the actual angle.See also arctangent definition and Inverse functions - trigonometry In a right triangle, the two variable angles are always less than 90° (See Interior angles of a triangle).By the Law of Sines, By the angle addition identities, as desired. This section looks at Sin, Cos and Tan within the field of trigonometry.Find ways to creatively approach your problems by working with other people and approaching the problem from a different perspective.
