### Class 10 Maths Introduction To Trigonometry

#### Trigonometry

Trigonometry is the study of relationships between the sides and angles of a right-angled triangle.

#### Trigonometric Ratios

Trigonometric ratios of an acute angle in a right triangle express the relationship between the angle and the length of its sides.

Let ∆ABC be a triangle right angled at B. Then the trigonometric ratios of the angle A in right ∆ABC are defined as follows:

Note:

The values of the trigonometric ratios of an angle do not vary with the lengths of the sides of the triangle, if the angle remains same.

#### Trigonometric Ratios for Complementary Angles

sin (90° – A) = cos A

cos (90° – A) = sin A

tan (90° – A) = cot A

cot (90° – A) = tan A

sec (90° – A) = cosec A

cosec (90° – A) = sec A

Note:

Here (90° – A) is the complementary angle of A.

#### Trigonometric Identities

An equation involving trigonometric ratios of an angle is called a trigonometric identity, if it is true for all values of the angle(s) involved.

(i) sin2θ + cos2θ = 1 [for 0° ≤ θ ≤ 90°]

(ii) sec2θ – tan2θ = 1 [for 0° ≤ θ ≤ 90°]

(iii) cosec2θ – cot2θ = 1 [for 0° < θ ≤ 90°]
