There are 3 distinctive sides in a right triangle:
Note that the Opposite and Adjacent side is in the perspective of the chosen angle

Csc(A), Sec(A), and Cot(A) are just the first 3’s respective reciprocal functions.

The Pythagorean Theorem:

The Unit Circle (A circle with radius=1):


Sin(v) = y-values
Cos(v) = x-values
Tan(v) = where the line touches the x=1 tangent to the unit circle

Reflection Values:
Because the unit circle is symmetrical, some values will be the same, but just with a different sign(s) AKA “-” OR “+”

Sinus, Cosines, and Tangents values, and signs: 

This will show you how what sign is in front of each value AKA Positive or Negative:
