Solution: In a given triangle ABC, right angled at B = ∠B = 90° Given: AB = 24 cm and BC = 7 cm According to the Pythagoras Theorem, In a right- angled triangle, the squares of the hypotenuse side is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. By applying Pythagoras theorem, we get AC2=AB2+BC2 AC2 = (24)2+72 AC2 = (576+49) AC2 = 625cm2 AC = √625 = 25 Therefore, AC = 25 cm (i) To find Sin (A), Cos (A) We know that sine (or) Sin function is the equal to the ratio of length of the opposite side to the hypotenuse side. So it becomes Sin (A) = Opposite side /Hypotenuse = BC/AC = 7/25 Cosine or Cos function is equal to the ratio of the length of the adjacent side to the hypotenuse side and it becomes, Cos (A) = Adjacent side/Hypotenuse = AB/AC = 24/25 (ii) To find Sin (C), Cos (C) Sin (C) = AB/AC = 24/25 Cos (C) = BC/AC = 7/25
