Discovering the Tangent Ratio 1. Move point B on the triangle slightly, so you have your own measurements. 2.Write down this information for your triangle in your notebook. [b]Angle A[/b] - Adjacent leg length - opposite leg length- opposite/adjacent (decimal form) - tan(A) [either into your calculator or a computer calculator]. [b]Angle B [/b]- Adjacent leg length - opposite leg length - opposite/adjacent (decimal form) - tan(A) [either into your calculator or a computer calculator]. 3. What did you notice about these values? 4. Make a conclusion about this data.

Move point B on the triangle slightly, so you have your own measurements. Write down this information for your triangle in your notebook. Angle A - Adjacent leg - opposite leg - opposite/adjacent (decimal form) - tan(A) [either into your calculator or a computer calculator]. Angle B - Adjacent leg - opposite leg - opposite/adjacent (decimal form) - tan(A) [either into your calculator or a computer calculator]. What did you notice about these values? Complete this conjecture: If you divide the opposite and adjacent legs of a right triangle, then ___________________.
