Δ ABC is right angled at B

AB = 12 cm and ∠CAB = 60 °

Let us use the trigonometric ratio involving AB and AC.

To angle ∠CAB, AB is the adjacent side.

AC is the hypotenuse of the triangle.

So, we will use cos ∠CAB.

cos ∠CAB = cos 60° = \\frac{\text{AB}}{\text{AC}})

cos 60° = \\frac{\text{1}}{\text{2}})

∴ \\frac{\text{1}}{\text{2}}) = \\frac{\text{12}}{\text{AC}})

AC = 2 × 12 = 24 cm

So, ** AC = 24 cm **

Let us use the trigonometric ratio involving AB and BC.

To angle ∠CAB, AB is the adjacent side and BC is the opposite side.

So, we will use tan ∠CAB

tan ∠CAB = tan 60 ° = \\frac{\text{BC}}{\text{AB}})

tan 60° = √3

√3 =\\frac{\text{BC}}{\text{12}})

**BC = 12 × √3 cm **
