Here you’ll learn the definition and concept of The Tangent Ratio, using video and explanation in own handwriting by the instructor.

The tangent ratio is the ratio of leg opposite to an angle of a right angle to the leg adjacent to the angle i.e.

tan = opposite/adjacent.

The tangent ratio for acute angles is constant. Further you will learn how to find the tangent ratio for any angle of right triangle, given the measure of the sides of the triangle.
