In measuring angles such as the 30

sin 30^{o} = 1/2 = opposite side ∕ hypotenuse |
csc 30^{o} = 2/1 = 2 = hypotenuse ∕ opposite side |

cos 30^{o} = (√3)/2 = adjacent side ∕ hypotenuse |
sec 30^{o} = 2/√3 = hypotenuse ∕ adjacent side |

tan 30^{o} = 1/√3 = opposite side ∕ adjacent side |
cot 30^{o} = (√3)/1 = √3 = adjacent side ∕ opposite side |

Study the above and look for a pattern. By pattern I am asking how did we use the info given by the right triangle to find the sine, cosine, tangent, cosecant, secant and cotangent of the 30

What are the six trig functions of the 60

What are the values of the remaining trig functions for the 60

REMEMBER THAT THE TRIG VALUES OF ANY ANGLE WILL NOT CHANGE DUE TO THE SIZE OF THE TRIANGLE.

For example - the sin of 30

REGARDLESS OF THE SIZE OF THE TRIANGLE.
