What are Trigonometric Ratios?
Right triangles have ratios to represent the angles formed by the hypotenuse and its legs. Sine ratios, along with cosine and tangent ratios, are ratios of the lengths of two sides of the triangle. Sine ratios in particular are the ratios of the length of the side opposite the angle they represent over the hypotenuse. Sine ratios are useful in trigonometry when dealing with triangles and circles.

Trigonometric Ratios: Sine
We're going to learn about the sine, which is one of the trigonometric ratios.
Given an angle A in a right triangle. Then sin A is equal to the length of the leg that is opposite to this angle A, over the length of the hypotenuse.
A mnemonic that will help you remember this ratio easily: S. O. H. SOH is a mnemonic for sine, opposite, and hypotenuse.
