An easy way to remember these trig functions is the following pnuemonic:
Chief SOH CAH TOA (pronounced Cheif soaka toea)
The SOH CAH TOA part is as follows
SINE = OPPOSITE over HYPOTENUSE
COSINE = ADJACENT over HYPOTENUSE
TANGENT = OPPOSITE over ADJACENT
Where the hypotenuse is obvious, and the adjacent side is not the hypotenuse, but the other connecting side to the angle you have, and the opposite is the one not touching the angle, if that makes any sense.
