12-114.

Use the Pythagorean Identity to find the missing coordinate of this point on the unit circle: (?,

At any point on the unit circle, the corresponding right triangle has a hypotenuse of 1.

If you know the length of the vertical leg and the hypotenuse, how can you solve for the horizontal leg?

For any right triangle, *a*² + *b*² = *c*².
