Subject: Re: The Story of Sohcahtoa


yeah i do 


sohcahtoa is an abreviation of several "words" put together..

soh alludes to sin = opposite /hypotenuse

cah alludes to cos = adjacent/hypotenuse 

toa alludes to tan = opposite/adjacent 


ofcourse the term sin = opposite/hypotuse is really sin (angle)
=opposite/hypotenuse
