An angle is the figure formed by two rays sharing a common endpoint, called the vertex of the angle. Angles provide a means of expressing the difference in slope between two rays meeting at a vertex without the need to explicitly define the slopes of the two rays. Angles are studied in geometry and trigonometry.
sin theta is = to opposite/hypotenuse.
cos theta is = to adjacent/hypotenuse.
tan theta is = to opposite/ adjacent. -*-
