Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, games, and activities to help students learn how to find the tangent of an angle in a right triangle using sohcahtoa.

**Tangent Ratios**

Right triangles have ratios that are used to represent their base angles. Tangent ratios, along with cosine and sine ratios, are ratios of two different sides of a right triangle. Tangent ratios are the ratio of the side opposite to the side adjacent the angle they represent.

**Trigonometric Ratio: Tangent**

Given an angle A in a right triangle, then tan A is equal to the length of the leg that is opposite to this angle A, over the length of the leg that is adjacent to this angle A.

A mnemonic that will help you remember this ratio easily: T. O. A. TOA is a mnemonic for tangent, opposite, and adjacent.
