functions, which means that sine and cosine graphs repeat themselves in patterns. You can graph sine and cosine functions by understanding their period and amplitude. Sine and cosine graphs are related to the graph of the tangent .
function, though the graphs look very different
This video explains how cosine ratios, along with sine and tangent ratios, are ratios of two different sides of a right triangle. Cosine ratios are specifically the ratio of the side adjacent to the represented base angle over the hypotenuse.
