1
**Using Fundamental Identities**

Objectives: Recognize and write the fundamental trigonometric identities Use the fundamental trigonometric identities to evaluate trigonometric functions, simplify trigonometric expressions, and rewrite trigonometric expressions

2
WHY??? Fundamental trigonometric identities can be used to simplify trigonometric expressions, such as for the coefficient of friction.

3
**Fundamental Trigonometric Identities**

Reciprocal Identities Quotient Identities

4
**Fundamental Trigonometric Identities**

Pythagorean Identities Even/Odd Identities

5
**Fundamental Trigonometric Identities**

Cofunction Identities

6
**Example: If and Ө is in quadrant II, find each function value.**

a) sec Ө To find the value of this function, look for an identity that relates tangent and secant. Tip: Use Pythagorean Identities.

7
**Example: If and Ө is in quadrant II, find each function value. (Cont.)**

b) sin Ө c) cot (- Ө ) Tip: Use Quotient Identities. Tip: Use Reciprocal and Negative-Angle Identities.

8
2. Use the values cos x > 0 and identities to find the values of all six trigonometric functions. What quadrant will you use? 1st quadrant

12
**Using Identities to Evaluate a Function**

Use the given values to evaluate the remaining trigonometric functions (You can also draw a right triangle)

13
**Simplify an Expression**

Simplify cot x cos x + sin x. Click for answer.

14
Example: Simplify 1. Factor csc x out of the expression.

15
**2. Use Pythagorean identities to simplify the expression in the parentheses.**

16
**3. Use Reciprocal identities to simplify the expression.**

17
**Simplifying a Trigonometric Expression**

18
**Factoring Trigonometric Expressions**

Factor the same way you would factor any quadratic. If it helps replace the “trig” word with x Factor the same way you would factor

19
**Make it an easier problem.**

Let a = csc x 2a2 – 7a + 6 (2a – 3)(a – 2) Now substitute csc x for a.

20
**1. Use Pythagorean identities to get one trigonometric function in the expression.**

21
2. Now factor.

22
**Factoring Trigonometric Expressions**

23
More Factoring

24
**Adding Trigonometric Expressions (Common Denominator)**

25
**Adding Trigonometric Expressions**

26
**Rewriting a Trigonometric Expression so it is not in Fractional Form**

27
**Trigonometric Substitution**
