Hello,

Please correct me if I am wrong but isn't the following diagram from Wikipedia's Trigonometric Functions page labeled incorrectly?

 Fig. 1
Since sin = opp/hyp and cos = adj/hyp, doesn't that mean that the green y segment labeled as cosθ, should actually be sinθ and that the blue x segment labeled as sinθ, should actually be cosθ?

Does anyone know how to edit a diagram in Wikipedia?

Thanks
