Relating to the Real World

• Before any spacecraft ever traveled to another planet, astronomers had figured out the distance from each planet to the sun. They accomplished this feat by using trigonometry the mathematics of triangle measurement. You will learn how to use trigonometry to measure distances that you could never otherwise measure.

Measure for Measure

• What do the Trigonometric Ratios tell you about the parts of a triangle?

• What are the conditions for triangles to be similar?

• How can you remember the Trigonometric ratios?

Label These Two Triangles

Angle A

Angle A

The Tangent Ratio

• The word Trigonometry comes from the Greek words meaning “triangle measurement.” A ratio of the lengths of sides of a right triangle. This ratio is called the TANGENT.

• TANGENT OF A = leg opposite A leg adjacent to A

• Slope of a line = Rise Run

Using the Tangent Ratio

AC

B

Leg Adjacent to < A, CA

Leg Opposite to < A, BC

Example

Tan U = opposite = TV = 3 adjacent UV 4

T

V U

4

Write the Tangent Ratios for < U and < T.

Tan T = opposite = UV = 4 adjacent TV 3

Try This

• Write the Tangent ratios for < K and < J

• How is Tan K related to the Tan J ?J
