Title Description
Tangent A line that touches a function curve at a single point is said to be Tangent to the function.
Tangent is also one of the six basic trigonometric functions; it is the ratio of the opposite side (from a specified angle) of a right triangle to the adjacent side.

Tangent Line A Line is said to be Tangent to a function when it touches the graph of the function at a single point.
