# Cosine Calculator

In a right angled triangle, the *cosine* of an angle is: The length of the adjacent side divided by the length of the hypotenuse.Represented as 'cos'

## What is Cosine Calculator?

## How to Find Cosine Value?

The cosine function is defined as the ratio of the length of the base to that of the length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle. The sign is a trigonometric function of an angle. It is denoted as cosθ, where θ is the angle between the two sides.

**Example 1:**

Find the cosine value if the θ = 60°

**Solution:**

Given θ = 60°

cos60° = 1 / 2

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the cosine values for the following:

- θ = 30°
- θ = 150°
