**Trigonometry Study Materials PDF**: The most important task of trigonometry is to find the remaining side and angle of a triangle when some of its side and angles are given. This problem is solved by using some ratio of sides of a triangle with respect to its acute angle. This ratio of acute angle are called the trigonometric ratio of angle. Let us now define various trigonometric ratio.

**Trigonometry Basics**

The concept of Trigonometry is given by a Greek mathematician Hipparchus. Trigonometry is all about a right-angled triangle.

It is one of those divisions in mathematics that helps in finding the angles and missing sides of a triangle by the help of trigonometric ratios.

The angles are either measured in radians or degrees. The usual trigonometry angles are 0°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°, which are commonly used.

**Six Important Trigonometric Functions**

The six important trigonometric functions (trigonometric ratios) are calculated by the below formulas using above figure. It is necessary to get knowledge regarding the sides of the right-angle triangle because it defines the set of important trigonometric functions.

Functions | Abbreviation | Relationship to sides of a right triangle |

Sine Function | sin | Opposite side/ Hypotenuse |

Tangent Function | tan | Opposite side / Adjacent side |

Cosine Function | cos | Adjacent side / Hypotenuse |

Cosecant Function | cosec | Hypotenuse / Opposite side |

Secant Function | sec | Hypotenuse / Adjacent side |

Cotangent Function | cot | Adjacent side / Opposite side |

**Trigonometry Ratios Table**

The standard angles of trigonometrical ratios are **0°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°**. The values of trigonometrical ratios of standard angles are very important to solve trigonometrical problems.

The values of trigonometrical ratios of standard angles are very important to solve the trigonometrical problems. Therefore, it is necessary to remember the value of the trigonometrical ratios of these standard angles. The sine, cosine and tangent of the standard angles are given below in the table.

## Trigonometry Formula

The Trigonometric formulas or Identities are the equations which are true in the case of Right-Angled Triangles. Some of the special trigonometric identities are as given below –

**1. Pythagorean Identities**

- sin ² θ + cos ² θ = 1
- tan
^{2}θ + 1 = sec^{2}θ - cot
^{2}θ + 1 = cosec^{2}θ - sin 2θ = 2 sin θ cos θ
- cos 2θ = cos² θ – sin² θ
- tan 2θ = 2 tan θ / (1 – tan² θ)
- cot 2θ = (cot² θ – 1) / 2 cot θ

### 2. Sum and Difference identities-

For angles A and B, we have the following relationships:

- sin(A + B) = sin(A)cos(B) + cos(A)sin(B)
- cos(A + B) = cos(A)cos(B) – sin(A)sin(B)
- tan(A + B) = tan(A) + tan(B)/1−tan(A) tan(B)
- sin(A – B) = sin(A)cos(B) – cos(A)sin(B)
- cos(A – B) = cos(A)cos(B) + sin(u)sin(v)
- tan(A – B) = tan(A) − tan(B)/1+tan(A) tan(B)

### 3. If A, B and C are angles and a, b and c are the sides of a triangle, then,

**Sine Laws**

- a/sinA = b/sinB = c/sinC

**Cosine Laws**

- c
^{2}= a^{2}+ b^{2}– 2ab cos C - a
^{2}= b^{2}+ c^{2}– 2bc cos A - b
^{2}= a^{2}+ c^{2}– 2ac cos B

## Trigonometry Questions & Answers For Competitive Exams

Here we have attached some Trigonometry questions and their solutions for competitive exams like SSC, Railway, UPSC & other exams.

**Question 1: In a ΔABC right angled at B if AB = 12, and BC = 5 find sin A and tan A, cos C and cot C**

**Solution:**

AC=√((AB)^2+(BC)^2 )

=√(〖12〗^2+5^2 )

=√(144+25)

=√169=13

When we consider t-ratios of∠A we have

Base AB = 12

Perpendicular = BC = 5

Hypotenuse = AC = 13

sinA=Perpendicular/Hypotenuse=5/13

tanA=Perpendicular/Base=5/12

When we consider t-ratios of ∠C, we have

Base = BC = 5

Perpendicular = AB = 12

Hypotenuse = AC = 13

cosC = Base/Hypotenuse = 5/13

cotC = Base/Perpendicular = 5/12

**Question 2 : Find the value of 2 sin2 30° tan 60° – 3 cos2 60° sec2 30°**

**Solution:**

2(1/2)^2×√3-3(1/2)^2×(2/√3)^2

=2×1/4×√3-3×1/4×4/3=√3/2-1=(√3-2)/2

**Question 3 : In a right triangle ABC right angle at B the six trigonometric ratios of ∠C**

**Solution:**

sinA=Perpendicular/Hypotenuse=3/5

Base=√((Hypotenuse)^2-(Perpendicualr)^2 )

=√(5^2-3^2 )

=√(25-9)=√16=4

Now

sinC=BC/AC=4/5,cosecC=5/4

cosC=3/5=AB/AC,secC=5/3

tanC=AB/AC=4/3,cotC=3/4

**Question 4 : Find the value of 2 sin2 30° tan 60° – 3 cos2 60° sec2 30°**

**Solution:**

2(1/2)^2×√3-3(1/2)^2×(2/√3)^2

=2×1/4×√3-3×1/4×4/3=√3/2-1=(√3-2)/2

**Question 5 : bFind the value θ sin2θ=√3**

**Solution:**

sin2θ= √3/2

2θ = 60

θ = 30°

**Question 6 : Find the value of x. Tan 3x = sin 45° cos 45° + sin 30°**

**Solution:**

tan3x=1/√2×1/√2+1/2

=1/2+1/2=1

⇒tan3x=1 ⇒ tan3x = tan45°

3x = 45°

X = 15°

## Trigonometry Problems & Solutions

Practice these questions given here to get a deep knowledge of Trigonometry. Use the formulas and table given in this article wherever necessary.

**Q.1: In △ABC, right-angled at B, AB=22cm and BC=17cm. Find:**

(a) sin A Cos B

(b) tan A tan B

**Q.2: If 12cot θ= 15, then find sec θ?**

**Q.3: In Δ PQR, right-angled at Q, PR + QR = 30 cm and PQ = 10 cm. Determine the values of sin P, cos P and tan P.**

**Q.4: If sec 4θ = cosec (θ- 300), where 4θ is an acute angle, find the value of A.**

## Height And Distance

Sometimes, we have to find the height of a tower, building, tree, distance of a ship, width of a river, etc.

Though we cannot measure them easily, we can determine these by using trigonometric ratios.

**Line of Sight**

The line of sight or the line of vision is a straight line to the object we are viewing. If the object is above the horizontal from the eye, we have to lift up our head to view the object. In this process, our eye move, through an angle. This angle is called the angle of elevation of the object.

If the object is below the horizontal from the eye, then we have no turn our head downwards no view the object. In this process, our eye move through an angle. This angle is called the angle of depression of the object.

**Example: A 25 m long ladder is placed against a vertical wall of a building. The foot of the ladder is 7m from base of the building. If the top of the ladder slips 4m, then the foot of the Ladder will slide by how much distance.**

**Sol:** Let the height of the wall be h.

Now, h = √(〖25〗^2-7^2 )

= √(576 ) = 24m

QS = √(625-400)

= √(225 )=15m

Required distance, X = (15-7) = 8m
