# Examples of adjacent

## What are real life examples of adjacent angles?

The most common real-life example of adjacent angles can be seen in

**two pizza slices that are placed next to each other**. Another common example can be seen in the clock which shows the hour, minute, and second hand that form adjacent angles when all the 3 are away from each other.## What does adjacent look like?

## What are adjacent sides explain with examples?

Adjacent sides are

**sides of a polygon that have a common vertex**. Usually found in triangles and other polygons, two of the sides that meet at a vertex of the polygon are called adjacent sides. In other words we can say, in geometry, two sides that meet to create an angle are said to be adjacent.## What kind of word is adjacent?

Lying next to, close, or contiguous; neighboring; bordering on.

## How do you use adjacent in a sentence?

If one thing is adjacent to another, the two things are next to each other.

In a right triangle, the hypotenuse is the longest side, an “opposite” side is the one across from a given angle, and

**an “adjacent” side is next to a given angle**. We use special words to describe the sides of right triangles. The hypotenuse of a right triangle is always the side opposite the right angle.## How do you find the adjacent side?

A convenient mnemonic for remembering the definition of the sine, cosine, and

**tangent**is SOHCAHTOA (sine equals opposite over hypotenuse, cosine equals adjacent over hypotenuse, tangent equals opposite over adjacent).## Which side is adjacent to a right angle?

The relation between the sides and other angles of the right triangle is the basis for trigonometry. The side opposite to the right angle is called the hypotenuse (side c in the figure). The sides adjacent to the right angle are called

**legs**(or catheti, singular: cathetus).
