Tangent + similarity of triangles - math problemsTangent is a trigonometric function. In a rectangular triangle, it is the ratio of the opposite and adjacent side to a given internal angle. Algebraically is defined as the ratio of the sine and cosine of a given angle. It is periodic with a period of π = 180 °.
