4 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The opposite and adjacent sides The two shorter sides of a right-angled triangle are named with respect to one of the acute angles. The side opposite the marked angle is called the opposite side. The side between the marked angle and the right angle is called the adjacent side. x

6 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 Similar right-angled triangles If two right-angled triangles have an acute angle of the same size they must be similar. For example, two triangles with an acute angle of 37° are similar. The ratio of the side lengths in each triangle is the same. 3 4 = 6 8 opp adj = 4 5 = 8 10 adj hyp = 3 5 = 6 10 opp hyp = 3 cm 4 cm 5 cm 37° 8 cm 6 cm 10 cm 37°

9 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 Trigonometry The word trigonometry comes from the Greek meaning ‘triangle measurement’. Trigonometry uses the fact that the side lengths of similar triangles are always in the same ratio to find unknown sides and angles. For example, when one of the angles in a right-angled triangle is 30° the side opposite this angle is always half the length of the hypotenuse. 30° 8 cm ? 4 cm 6 cm 12 cm ? 30°

10 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The sine ratio The ratio of the length of the opposite side the length of the hypotenuse is the sine ratio. The value of the sine ratio depends on the size of the angles in the triangle. θ OPPOSITEOPPOSITE H Y P O T E N U S E We say: sin θ = opposite hypotenuse

11 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The sine ratio What is the value of sin 65°? To work this out we can accurately draw a right-angled triangle with a 65° angle and measure the lengths of the opposite side and the hypotenuse. In a right-angled triangle with an angle of 65°, what is the ratio of the opposite side to the hypotenuse? This is the same as asking:

12 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The sine ratio What is the value of sin 65°? It doesn’t matter how big the triangle is because all right- angled triangles with an angle of 65° are similar. The length of the opposite side divided by the length of the hypotenuse will always be the same value as long as the angle is the same. In this triangle, sin 65° = opposite hypotenuse 65° 10 cm 11 cm = = 0.91 (to 2 d.p.)

13 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The sine ratio using a table What is the value of sin 65°? It is not practical to draw a diagram each time. Before the widespread use of scientific calculators, people would use a table of values to work this out. Here is an extract from a table of sine values: Angle in degrees

14 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The sine ratio using a calculator What is the value of sin 65°? To find the value of sin 65° using a scientific calculator, start by making sure that your calculator is set to work in degrees. Key in: sin 65= Your calculator should display This is to 3 significant figures.

15 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 The cosine ratio The ratio of the length of the adjacent side the length of the hypotenuse is the cosine ratio. The value of the cosine ratio depends on the size of the angles in the triangle. θ We say, cos θ = adjacent hypotenuse A D J A C E N T H Y P O T E N U S E

To work this out we can accurately draw a right-angled triangle with a 53° angle and measure the lengths of the adjacent side and the hypotenuse. What is the value of cos 53°? This is the same as asking:

29 © Boardworks Ltd of 43 Finding side lengths If we are given one side and one acute angle in a right-angled triangle we can use one of the three trigonometric ratios to find the lengths of other sides. For example, 56° x 12 cm Find x to 2 decimal places. We are given the hypotenuse and we want to find the length of the side opposite the angle, so we use: sin θ = opposite hypotenuse sin 56° = x 12 x = 12 × sin 56° = 9.95 cm

It makes an angle of 70° with the ground. 5 m 70° x What is the distance between the base of the ladder and the wall? We are given the hypotenuse and we want to find the length of the side adjacent to the angle, so we use: cos θ = adjacent hypotenuse cos 70° = x 5 x = 5 × cos 70° = 1.71 m (to 2 d.p.)
