Step 1
Similarity: If hypotenuse is given then using both $\mathrm{sin}0\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\text{and}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathrm{cos}0$ we can evaluate length of sides of a right triangle.
Step 2
Difference:
$\mathrm{sin}0$: Find the side opposite to the acute angle 0
$\mathrm{cos}0$:Find the adjacent side to the acute angle 0
