Tangent of an acute angle is the ratio between the opposite collet measurement and the adjacent collet measurement at that angle.
1. The tangent of an acute angle can be defined as the ratio of the sine of this angle to its cosine.
2. The tangent of an acute angle is a positive real number.
3. The sine and cosine of an acute angle are always positive real numbers less than 1, since any collet is always smaller than the hypotenuse.Next: The 30th, 45th, and 60th Trigonometric Ratios
