3. In fact, the size of  has certain relationship between the ratios Consider the right-angled PQRbelow. Is there any relationship among, PQ, QR and PR? and PQ P PR . , PQ QR R Q QR PR These ratiosare known as trigonometric ratios. I only know that PQ2 + QR2 = PR2… How does the size of  relate to the sides of the triangle?
