ANGLE ANGULAR MEASUREMENT
Angle is defined a rotation result from initial side to the terminal side An angle has “a positive” sign if its rotation is anticlockwise An angle has “a negative” sign if its rotation is clockwise We only talk about the magnitude of angle~ not observe its signs Initial side Terminal side

Objectives/Assignment Find the since, the cosine, and the tangent of an acute triangle. Use trionometric ratios to solve real-life problems
Finding Trig Ratios A trigonometric ratio is a ratio of the lengths of two sides of a right triangle. The word trigonometry is derived from the ancient Greek language and means measurement of triangles. The three basic trigonometric ratios are sin, cos, and tan
Trigonometric Ratios Let ∆ABC be a right triangle. The since, the cosine, and the tangent of the acute angle A are defined as follows. sin A = Side opposite A hypotenuse = a c cos A = Side adjacent to A hypotenuse = b c tan A = Side opposite A Side adjacent to A = a b
Exercise: In the PQR triangle is right angled at R happens cos P = 8/ 17…find the value of tg P and tg Q ?
Exercises 1. PQR triangle is right angled at R & sin P cosQ = ⅗. Find out the value c A B D E 2 ABC triangle is right angle at A. BC=p, AD is perpendicular at BC, DE perpendicular at AC, angle B = Q, prove that : DE=psin 2 Qcos Q
Evaluating Trigonometric Functions Acute angle A is drawn in standard position as shown. Right-Triangle-Based Definitions of Trigonometric Functions For any acute angle A in standard position,
Finding Trigonometric Function Values of an Acute Angle in a Right Triangle Example Find the values of sin A, cos A, and tan A in the right triangle. Solution – length of side opposite angle A is 7 – length of side adjacent angle A is 24 – length of hypotenuse is 25
Trigonometric Function Values of Special Angles Angles that deserve special study are 30 º, 45 º, and 60 º. Using the figures above, we have the exact values of the special angles summarized in the table on the right.
Let’s try to prove it ! O B A Y X 45 O OA=OB OA 2 + OB 2 = OC 2 OA 2 + OA 2 = r 2 2OA 2 = 1 OA 2 = ½ OA = = OB How about 30 0, 60 0 and 90 0
Cofunction Identities In a right triangle ABC, with right angle C, the acute angles A and B are complementary. Since angles A and B are complementary, and sin A = cos B, the functions sine and cosine are called cofunctions. Similarly for secant and cosecant, and tangent and cotangent.
Cofunction Identities NoteThese identities actually apply to all angles (not just acute angles). If A is an acute angle measured in degrees, then If A is an acute angle measured in radians, then
Reference Angles A reference angle for an angle , written , is the positive acute angle made by the terminal side of angle and the x-axis. ExampleFind the reference angle for each angle. (a)218 º (b) Solution (a) = 218 º – 180 º = 38 º (b)
Special Angles as Reference Angles ExampleFind the values of the trigonometric functions for 210 º. SolutionThe reference angle for 210 º is 210 º – 180 º = 30 º. Choose point P on the terminal side so that the distance from the origin to P is 2. A 30 º - 60 º right triangle is formed.
Finding Trigonometric Function Values Using Reference Angles ExampleFind the exact value of each expression. (a)cos(–240 º )(b) tan 675 º Solution (a)–240 º is coterminal with 120 º. The reference angle is 180 º – 120 º = 60 º. Since –240 º lies in quadrant II, the cos(–240 º ) is negative. Similarly, tan 675 º = tan 315 º = –tan 45 º = –1.
Finding Angle Measure ExampleFind all values of , if is in the interval [0º, 360º) and SolutionSince cosine is negative, must lie in either quadrant II or III. Since So the reference angle = 45º. The quadrant II angle = 180º – 45º = 135º, and the quadrant III angle = 180º + 45º = 225º.
Ex. 1: Finding Trig Ratios Compare the sine, the cosine, and the tangent ratios for A in each triangle beside. By the Similarity Theorem, the triangles are similar. Their corresponding sides are in proportion which implies that the trigonometric ratios for A in each triangle are the same.

Notes: If you look back, you will notice that the sine or the cosine of an acute triangles is always less than 1. The reason is that these trigonometric ratios involve the ratio of a leg of a right triangle to the hypotenuse. The length of a leg or a right triangle is always less than the length of its hypotenuse, so the ratio of these lengths is always less than one.
Using Trigonometric Ratios in Real-life Suppose you stand and look up at a point in the distance. Maybe you are looking up at the top of a tree as in Example 6. The angle that your line of sight makes with a line drawn horizontally is called angle of elevation.
Ex. 6: Indirect Measurement You are measuring the height of a Sitka spruce tree in Alaska. You stand 45 feet from the base of the tree. You measure the angle of elevation from a point on the ground to the top of the top of the tree to be 59°. To estimate the height of the tree, you can write a trigonometric ratio that involves the height h and the known length of 45 feet.
The math tan 59 ° = opposite adjacent tan 59 ° = h tan 59° = h 45 (1.6643) ≈ h 75.9 ≈ h Write the ratio Substitute values Multiply each side by 45 Use a calculator or table to find tan 59 ° Simplify The tree is about 76 feet tall.
Ex. 7: Estimating Distance Escalators. The escalator at the Wilshire/Vermont Metro Rail Station in Los Angeles rises 76 feet at a 30° angle. To find the distance d a person travels on the escalator stairs, you can write a trigonometric ratio that involves the hypotenuse and the known leg of 76 feet. 30 °
Now the math 30 ° sin 30 ° = opposite hypotenuse sin 30 ° = 76 d d sin 30° = 76 sin 30 ° 76 d = d = d = 152 Write the ratio for sine of 30 ° Substitute values. Multiply each side by d. Divide each side by sin 30 ° Substitute 0.5 for sin 30 ° Simplify A person travels 152 feet on the escalator stairs.
