In Exercises 1 to 6, find sin     α and sin     β for the triangle shown. To determine

To find:

The angle sinαandsinβ

Explanation

In a right angle triangle,

1) The side PQ, which is opposite to the right angle PRQ is called the hypotenuse.

(The hypotenuse is the longest side of the right triangle.)

2) The side RQ is called the adjacent side of angle θ.

3) The side PR is called the opposite side of angle θ.

Hence, the sine ratio for an acute angle is

Ratio =oppositehypotenuse

Given:

The diagram is,

For angle α, the opposite side is 5 and hypotenuse side is 13
