I'm really struggling with these questions, and can't find any help as to how to actually solve them (as in the method).

Could anyone help me out please?

\displaystyle \sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta\equiv1

How can you use this to find \cos \theta given \sin \theta ?

The way i do is by using the Triangle .

say Sin x = 12/13

Sin of an angle : is opposite/Hypotenuse

so it is 12 / 13

now If you look for Cos x we need to use the triangle

Just to add, if its acute the answer will be positive but obtuse means it depends on whether its sin or cos
