Well, I'm in college and having taken algebra2 both in hs and college, I cannot recall ever using SIN,COS, Tangent ever. So I'm assuming it's geometry related

Anyways, to view the problem you will need to go here: http://www.csus.edu/math/courses/IADPra ... mFormC.pdf and view problem #16.

The problem asks to find Sin(A).

My approach was reading up on SOH CAH TOA

Being SIN i chose the opposite side (I believe is 4) and the Hypotenuse 5

However, the answer was 3/5 which has me confused as I thought the opposite side was opposite of hypotenuse, and adjacent being the short one.

Thanks for helping on my geometry or algebra related question
