10.1 Basic Terminology of Trigonometry
A. Angles of Rotation Fig 10.3 shows a circle on a rectangular coordinate plane, with centre at the origin O and of radius r. A is a point on the circle. Fig. 10.3 Fig. 10.3 An angle θ is formed by rotating OA about the origin O to reach OP as shown in Fig The angle θ is called the angle of rotation. We call OA the initial side of the angle and OP the terminal side of the angle.

10.1 Basic Terminology of Trigonometry
B. Quadrants In a rectangular coordinate plane, the x-axis and y-axis divide the plane into four regions which are known as quadrants. They are labelled and are shown in Fig Fig. 10.7 The x-axis and y-axis do not belong to any of the four quadrants.

10.1 Basic Terminology of Trigonometry
An angle of rotation θ is said to lie in a quadrant if its terminal side lies in that quadrant. When the measure of θ is either negative or greater than 360º, the position of the terminal side of θ determines the quadrant in which it lies. For example, the terminal side of –240º coincides with that of 120º as shown in Fig Fig. 10.8 Since 120º lies in quadrant II, –240º also lies in quadrant II.

10.2 Definition of Trigonometric Ratio of Any Angles
A. Definition The trigonometric ratios of an acute angle  are defined as the ratios between the sides of a right-angled triangle. To define the trigonometric ratios for an arbitrary angle, we can first place triangle OPQ on a rectangular coordinate plane as shown in Fig The trigonometric ratios of the angle  then can be defined in terms of x, y and r, where Fig

10.2 Definition of Trigonometric Ratio of Any Angles
For angles greater than 90o, we can consider the terminal side OP of the angle θ and let the coordinates of P be (x, y): θ lies in quadrant II θ lies in quadrant III θ lies in quadrant IV Fig (a) Fig (b) Fig (c) Then the trigonometric ratios of θ are defined in terms of x, y and r, as follows: where

10.4 Trigonometric Equations
A. Inverses of the Trigonometric Ratios If a trigonometric ratio of an angle is given, then we can find the angle. This process is called finding the inverse of the trigonometric ratio.

10.4 Trigonometric Equations
B. Algebraic Solutions of Trigonometric Equations An equation involving trigonometric ratios of an unknown angle is called a trigonometric equation. For example, (2 sin x – 1)(sin x + 1) = 0 is a trigonometric equation. It is not an identity because it holds for some values of x only, such as x = 30º. x = 30º is called a solution of this trigonometric equation.

Example 10.7T Solve the equation for (Give the answers correct to 1 decimal place.) Solution: If cos  = 0, then sin  =  1 , which does not satisfy 2sin  + cos  = 0. As cos   0, we can divide the expression by cos  . (correct to 1 decimal place)
