Answer

Sine=$\frac{15}{17}$ Cosine=$\frac{8}{17}$ Tangent=$\frac{15}{8}$

Work Step by Step

The side opposite $\angle$G is 15. The side adjacent to $\angle$G is 8. The hypotenuse has a measure of 17. Sine=$\frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}$ = $\frac{15}{17}$ Cosine = $\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$=$\frac{8}{17}$ Tangent = $\frac{opposite}{adjacent}$=$\frac{15}{8}$
