Trigonometric ratios: Sine


Right triangles have ratios to represent the angles formed by the hypotenuse and its legs. There are six basic trigonometric functions, which are tabulated here along with equations relating them to one another: Sine, cosine, tangent, cosecant, secant and cotangent.

Sine: The sine of an angle in a right triangle equals the opposite side divided by the hypotenuse.

Find Sin A and Sin B  

Using the Pythagorean Theorem, the missing leg must be 24, then
sin A = 24
26
= 12

  and   sin B = 10
26
= 5

Look at the following right triangle, where:
a = 5
b = 5
Find the sine of angle A

The sine of angle A is =
