In Δ ABC, right-angled at B, AB = 24 cm, BC = 7 cm. Determine:

(i) Sin A, cos A

(ii) Sin C, cos C

In Δ ABC, right-angled at B ,using Pythagoras theorem we have

AC

Or AC=25 ( taking positive value only)

Now

(i) In a right angle triangle ABC where B=90° ,

Sin A = BC/AC = 7/25

CosA = AB/AC = 24/25

(ii)

Sin C = AB/AC = 24/25

Cos C = BC/AC =7/25

In below find tan P – cot R

Again consider the above figure . Now by Pythagoras theorem

PQ

QR=5

Now

tan P = Perp/Base = 5/12

Cot R = Base/Perm = 5/12

So tan P – cot R=0

Given $sin A= \frac{3}{4}$

Or P/H=3/4

Let P=3k and H=4k

Now By Pythagoras theorem

P

9k

Or $ B =+ k \sqrt 7 $

Now $CosA = {B \over H} = {{\sqrt 7 } \over 4}$

Now $\tan A = {{SinA} \over {CosA}} = {3 \over {\sqrt 7 }}$

Given 15 cot A = 8, find sin A and sec A.

$Cot A =\frac{8}{15}$

Or

${B \over P} = {8 \over {15}}$

Let B=8K and P=15k

So in a right angle triangle with angle A

P

Or H=17K

Sin A = P/H = 15/17

Sec A = H/B = 17/8

Given sec θ =13/12. Calculate all other trigonometric ratios.

Given sec θ=13/12

Or

H/B=13/12

let H=13K ,B=12K

So in a right angle triangle with angle A

P

P=5k

sin θ = P/H = 5/13

Cos θ = B/H = 12/13

Tan θ = P/B = 5/12

Cosec θ= 1/sin θ = 13/5

cot θ = 1/tan θ = 12/5

If ∠ A and ∠ B are acute angles such that cos A = cos B, then show that ∠ A = ∠ B.

In a triangle

Cos A =cos B

AC/AB= BC/AB

⇒AC=BC

⇒Angle A and Angle B

If cot θ =7/8 evaluate

(i) ${{\left( {1 + sin\theta } \right)\left( {1 - sin\theta } \right)} \over {\left( {1 + cos\theta } \right)\left( {1 - cos\theta } \right)}}$

(ii) ${\cot ^2}\theta $

Given

Given cot θ=7/8

Or

B/P=7/8

let B=7K ,P=8K

So in a right angle triangle with angle θ

P

$H = k\sqrt {113} $

$\sin \theta = {P \over H} = {8 \over {\sqrt {113} }}$

$\cos \theta = {B \over H} = {7 \over {\sqrt {113} }}$

(i) ${{\left( {1 + sin\theta } \right)\left( {1 - sin\theta } \right)} \over {\left( {1 + cos\theta } \right)\left( {1 - cos\theta } \right)}}$

$ = {{1 - si{n^2}\theta } \over {1 - co{s^2}\theta }}$

${{1 - {{64} \over {113}}} \over {1 - {{49} \over {113}}}} = {{49} \over {64}}$

(ii) Cot

If 3 cot A = 4, check whether below is true or not

${{1 - ta{n^2}A} \over {1 + ta{n^2}A}} = co{s^2}A - si{n^2}A$

Given

Cot A=4/3

Or

B/P=4/3

Let B=4k and P=3k

So in a right angle triangle with angle A

P

H=5k

Now tan A=1/cot A=3/4

Cos A=B/H=4/5

Sin A=P/H=3/5

Let us take the LHS

${{1 - ta{n^2}A} \over {1 + ta{n^2}A}} = {{1 - {{\left( {{3 \over 4}} \right)}^2}} \over {1 + {{\left( {{3 \over 4}} \right)}^2}}} = {7 \over {25}}$

RHS=cos

So LHS=RHS,so the statement is true

In triangle ABC, right-angled at B, if $\tan A = {1 \over {\sqrt 3 }}$

Find the value of:

(i) sin A cos C + cos A sin C

(ii) cos A cos C – sin A sin C

$\tan A = {1 \over {\sqrt 3 }}$

${P \over B} = {1 \over {\sqrt 3 }}$

Let $P = k$ and $B = k\sqrt 3 $

Now by Pythagoras theorem

P

H=2k

(i)

$SinACosC + CosASinC = \left( {{P \over H}} \right)\left( {{B \over H}} \right) + \left( {{B \over H}} \right)\left( {{P \over H}} \right)$

$ = \left( {{{BC} \over {AC}}} \right)\left( {{{BC} \over {AC}}} \right) + \left( {{{AB} \over {AC}}} \right)\left( {{{AB} \over {AC}}} \right)$

$ = {{{k^2}} \over {4{k^2}}} + {{3{k^2}} \over {4{k^2}}} = 1$

(ii)

$CosACosC - SinASinC = \left( {{P \over H}} \right)\left( {{P \over H}} \right) + \left( {{B \over H}} \right)\left( {{B \over H}} \right)$

$ = \left( {{{BC} \over {AC}}} \right)\left( {{{AB} \over {AC}}} \right) - \left( {{{AB} \over {AC}}} \right)\left( {{{BC} \over {AC}}} \right)$

$=0$

In Δ PQR, right-angled at Q, PR + QR = 25 cm and PQ = 5 cm. Determine the values of

sin P, cos P and tan P.

Let QR=x andPR=y

Then x+y=25

y=25-x

Now by Pythagorus theorem

x

x

Solving it ,we get

X=12 cm

Then y=25-12=13 cm

Now Sin P= 12/13

Cos P=5/13

Tan P=12/5

State whether the following are true or false. Justify your answer.

(i) The value of tan A is always less than 1.

(ii) sec A =12/5 for some value of angle A.

(iii) cos A is the abbreviation used for the cosecant of angle A.

(iv) cot A is the product of cot and A.

(v) sin θ =4/3 for some angle

- False. The value of tan A increase from 0 to ∞.
- True. The value of sec A increase from 1 to ∞.
- False .Cos A is the abbreviation used for the cosine of angle A
- False .cot A is one symbol. We cannot separate it
- False. The value of sin θ always lies between 0 and 0 and 4/3 > 1
