Example: If you know the measure of an acute angle of a right triangle and the length of the adjacent side, you can use the cosine ratio to find the length of the hypotenuse. Use Your Vocabulary 4. A triangle has a given acute angle. Circle its cosine ratio. adjacent hypotenuse hypotenuse adjacent opposite hypotenuse adjacent opposite 5. A right triangle has one acute angle measuring 53.18, the length of the side adjacent to this angle is 9 units, and the length of the side opposite this angle is 12 units. The length of the hypotenuse is 15 units. Circle the cosine ratio of the 53.18 angle. 9 12 Chapter 8 12 15 9 15 15 9 15 12 222 Copyright © by Pearson Education, Inc. or its affiliates.
