In Steve Means last post he also stated:
Last week her class started on trig and she asked for HELP with problems in
which they were asked to compute the trig ratios for right triangles with
varying lengths given.

If the sides of these right triangles were given...and the assignment was
merely to divide one number by another to find the ratios as you say.... why
did this young lady need to ask for help?
Please clarify...Harv Becker
