How to solve trigonometric problems based on complimentary anngles?(concept-3)

IB Maths tutors give great importance to Trigonometry.

Trigonometry is one of the fascinating branches of Mathematics. It deals with the relationships among the sides and angles of a triangle.Word trigonometry was originated from the Greek word, where, ‘TRI‘ means Three‘GON‘ means sides and the ‘METRON’ means to measure. It’s an ancient and probably most widely used branch Mathematics. For basic learning, IB Maths Tutors divide trigonometry in two part:-

1. Trigonometry based on right triangles

2. Trigonometry based on non-right triangles.

Here, we are discussing trigonometry based on non-right triangles only.

In the third article of this series, we will discuss problems based on complementary angles

In this right triangle Sin A=BC/AC & Cos C=BC/AC   clearly: Sin A=Cos C  In the given triangle A+C=90° so we can write C=(90°-A). This gives us freedom to write Sin A=Cos (90°-A) similarly we can write these relationships     Read more
