Right Triangle Trigonometry

Objectives

• Find trigonometric ratios using right triangles.

• Use trigonometric ratios to find angle measures in right triangles.

History Right triangle trigonometry is the study of the relationship between the sides and angles of right triangles. These relationships can be usedto make indirect measurements like those using similar triangles.

Trigonometric Ratios

The Amazing Legend of…

The six trigonometric functions of a right triangle, with an acute angle , are defined by ratios of two sides of the triangle. The sides of the right triangle are:

the side opposite the acute angle ,

the side adjacent to the acute angle , and the hypotenuse of the right triangle.

The trigonometric functions are sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant.

Consider an equilateral triangle with each side of length 2.

The perpendicular bisector

of the base bisects the opposite angle.

The three sides are equal, so the angles are equal; each is 60.

TRIG FUNCTIONS & COMPLEMENTSTwo positive angles are complements if the sum of their measures is .

Example: are complement because .

The sum of the measures of the angles in a triangle is . In a right triangle, we have a angle. That means that the sum of the other two angles is . Those two angles are acute and complement.

If the degree measure of one acute angle is , then the degree measure of the other angle is .

TRIG FUNCTIONS & COMPLEMENTSCompare and .

Therefore, . If two angles are complements, the sine of one equals the cosine of the other.

sin 𝜃=cos ( 𝜋2 −𝜃) cos𝜃=sin ( 𝜋2 −𝜃)

tan𝜃=co t (𝜋2 −𝜃) cot 𝜃= tan ( 𝜋2 −𝜃)

An angle formed by a horizontal line and the line of sight to an object that is above the horizontal line is called the angle of elevation. The angle formedby a horizontal line and the line of sight to an objectthat is below the horizontal line is called the angle ofdepression. Transits and sextants are instrumentsused to measure such angles.
