sin $A$ = $\frac{16}{20}$ or $\frac{4}{5}$ cos $A$ = $\frac{12}{20}$ or $\frac{3}{5}$ tan $A$ = $\frac{16}{12}$ or $\frac{4}{3}$

Work Step by Step

The trigonometric ratios we want to find are given below: sin $A$ = $\frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}$ cos $A$ = $\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$ tan $A$ = $\frac{opposite}{adjacent}$ Let's plug in values given for each of the sides: sin $A$ = $\frac{16}{20}$ or $\frac{4}{5}$ cos $A$ = $\frac{12}{20}$ or $\frac{3}{5}$ tan $A$ = $\frac{16}{12}$ or $\frac{4}{3}$
