plot the point (12,5) and join it to the origin.
draw a vertical line from the point to the xaxis
You now have a rightangled triangle with a base (x) of 12 and a height (y) of 5
Using Pythagoras, we can find the hypotenuse
h^2 = 12^2 + 5^2 = 169
h = 13
let the base angle be Ø
You should have learned the following definitions
sinØ = opposite/hypotenuse = 5/13
cosØ = adjacent/hypotenus = 12/13
tanØ = opposite/adjacent = 5/12
of course ...
cscØ = 13/5
secØ = 13/12
cotØ = 12/5 👍
