#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

If you place the triangle on a graph, with one side laying on the positive side of the x-axis, and set the other side to pass through the origin and the given point

The bottom side will be the "adjacent" side to the angle, while the vertical side is the "opposite."

knowing the acronym SOH CAH TOA

and the Pythagorean Theorem

We can find that

By solving for Hyp, we see that the hypotenuse is 2 units long.

Knowing this, we can then solve the sine and cosine.
