  1. 1. Maths 3/4: Trigonometry Formulas & Identities 1. Trigonometric Functions of Acute Angles sin X = a / c csc X = c / a Basic tan X = a / b cot X = b / a cos X = b / c sec X = c / b 1. Special Triangles Special triangles may be used to find trigonometric functions of special angles: 30, 45 and 60 degress. 2. Sine and Cosine Laws in Triangles
  2. 2. 1 - The sine law sin A / a = sin B / b = sin C / c 2 - The cosine laws a 2 = b 2 + c 2 - 2 b c cos A b 2 = a 2 + c 2 - 2 a c cos B c 2 = a 2 + b 2 - 2 a b cos C 3. Relations Between Trigonometric Functions cscX = 1 / sinX, sinX = 1 / cscX secX = 1 / cosX, cosX = 1 / secX tanX = 1 / cotX, cotX = 1 / tanX tanX = sinX / cosX, cotX = cosX / sinX 4. Pythagorean Identities sin 2X + cos 2X = 1 1 + tan 2X = sec 2X 1 + cot 2X = csc 2X 5. Negative Angle Identities sin(-X) = - sinX , odd function csc(-X) = - cscX , odd function cos(-X) = cosX , even function sec(-X) = secX , even function
  3. 3. tan(-X) = - tanX , odd function cot(-X) = - cotX , odd function 6. Cofunctions Identities sin(pi/2 - X) = cosX cos(pi/2 - X) = sinX tan(pi/2 - X) = cotX cot(pi/2 - X) = tanX sec(pi/2 - X) = cscX csc(pi/2 - X) = secX 7.

Sum to Product Formulas cosX + cosY = 2cos[ (X + Y) / 2 ] cos[ (X - Y) / 2 ] sinX + sinY = 2sin[ (X + Y) / 2 ] cos[ (X - Y) / 2 ] 9. Difference to Product Formulas cosX - cosY = - 2sin[ (X + Y) / 2 ] sin[ (X - Y) / 2 ] sinX - sinY = 2cos[ (X + Y) / 2 ] sin[ (X - Y) / 2 ] 10.Product to Sum/Difference Formulas cosX cosY = (1/2) [ cos (X - Y) + cos (X + Y) ] sinX cosY = (1/2) [ sin (X + Y) + sin (X - Y) ] cosX sinY = (1/2) [ sin (X + Y) - sin[ (X - Y) ] sinX sinY = (1/2) [ cos (X - Y) - cos (X + Y) ]
