Question Use your calculator to answer to 4 decimal places (a) cos 25° (b) sin 50° (c) tan 34°

Answer Use your calculator to answer to 4 decimal places (a) cos 25° (b) sin 50° (c) tan 34° (a) cos 25 = = (b) sin = = (c) tan = =

Question Use your calculator to find the angles to the nearest degree
(a) sin A = 0.83 (b) cos B = ¾ (c) tan A = 5/7

Answer Use your calculator to find the angles to the nearest degree
(a) sin A = 0.83 (b) cos B = ¾ (c) tan A = 5/7 (a) 2ndF, sin, .83 = = 56° (b) 2ndF, cos, a/b, 3 ↓ 4 = = 41° (c) 2ndF, tan, a/b, 5 ↓ 7 = = 36°

Solving Right-angle Triangles
In the triangle below, find the length of b The side we must find is the adjacent (b) We have the hypotenuse c = 10m The ratio that uses adj. & hyp. is cos So cos 60° = = 0.5 = b = 10(0.5) b = 5m Answer adjacent hypotenuse b 10 b 10 c = 10m a 60° b

Solving Right-angle Triangles
Find the angle A to the nearest degree We have the opposite & the adjacent so we use tan ratio Tan A = = Tan A = Use calculator 2ndF, tan, a/b, 4 ↓ 3 = A = A = 53° Answer Opposite adjacent 4 3 4 3 3m adjacent 4m opposite

Solving Right-angle Triangles
Find the side c (hyp.) to 2 decimal places We are given angle & opposite to find hyp. sin 40° = = x c = 15 c = c = Answer 15 c 15 c 15 0.6428 c 15m 40° b

Solving Right-angle Triangles
Given a section through a roof with 2 unequal pitches, calculate (a) the rise of the roof (b) the length of rafter c (c) the span b 5.42m c 40° 30° b

Solving Right-angle Triangles
This question may seem complicated but we can simplify it by using our knowledge of right-angle triangles Firstly, divide triangle into 2 right-angled triangles (using the rise line) 5.42m c rise 40° 30° b

Solving Right-angle Triangles
On the larger triangle we have the angle 30° & the hypotenuse 5.42m so we can use ratio sin 30° to find the opposite (rise) Sin = (soh) opposite hypotenuse 5.42m c 40° 30° b

Solving Right-angle Triangles
Sin 30°= 0.5 = 0.5 x 5.42 = rise rise = 2.71m Answer (a) opposite hypotenuse rise 5.42 5.42m c 40° 30° b

Solving Right-angle Triangles
So on the smaller triangle we now have the opposite (2.71m) and the angle 40° So to find adjacent (part of span) we use Tan Tan 40° = 0.839 = 0.839 x adj. = 2.71 adj. = 2.71 ÷ 0.839 = 3.23m Opposite adjacent 2.71 adjacent 5.42m c 30° 40° b adj.

Solving Right-angle Triangles
Using Pythagoras we can find c a² + b² = c² 2.71² ² = c² = c² c² = c = √17.777 c = 4.216m Answer (b) 5.42m c 2.71m 40° 30° b 3.23m

Solving Right-angle Triangles
Using Pythagoras we can find the rest of the span i.e. the base of the larger triangle a² + b² = c² 2.71² + b² = 5.42² b² = b² = – 7.344 b² = b = √22.032 b = 4.694m 5.42m c 2.71m 40° 30° b 3.23m

Solving Right-angle Triangles
So = span Span = 7.924m Answer (c) 5.42m c 2.71m 40° 30° b 3.23m
