### 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 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

**tan A=Cot (90°-A)**

**CotA=tan (90°-A)**

**SecA=Cosec (90°-A)**

**Cosec A=Sec (90°-A)**

**Sin A=Cos (90°-A)**

**Cos A= Sin (90°-A)**

These formulas give us the freedom to solve trigonometric problems based on complementary angles. IB Maths Tutors use the following concept to solve complementary angle problems

Concept-3

In a trigonometric problem, If we are given two angles which are complementary to each other, we will change only one angle out of the given two angles. We should keep the second angle unchanged.

**Example 1:**Find value of cos 56° / sin 34°

**Solution:**56°+34°=90° so given angles are complementary. In the case of complementary angles, we should change only one angle. here we are changing 34°

cos 56° = cos (90° – 56°) = sin 34°

cos 56° / sin 34° = sin 34° / sin 34° = 1

**Hence the value of cos 56° / sin 34° is 1.**

**Example 2:**Find the value of (cos 65° sin 18° cos 58°) / (cos 72° sin 25° sin 32°)

**Solution :**

65° and 25°

18° and 72°

32° and 58° all are pairs of

cos 65° = cos (90° – 25°) = sin 25°

sin 18° = sin (90° – 72°) = cos 72°

cos 58° = cos (90° – 32°) = sin 32°

(cos 65° sin 18° cos 58°) / (cos 72° sin 25° sin 32°) is

= (sin 25° cos 72° sin 32°) / (cos 72° sin 25° sin 32°)

= 1

**Hence the value of the given trigonometric expression is 1.**

**Example3: I the value of sin 3A = cos (A – 26°), where 3A is an acute angle, then calculate A.**

Solution: We are given that sin 3A = cos (A – 26°)

this relationship is called a trigonometric equation. To solve a trigonometric equation, we should convert it such that it should have only one trigonometric ratio in it. so we should either convert sin into cos or cos into sin.

As sin 3A = cos (90° – 3A), so we can rewrite as

cos (90° – 3A) = cos (A – 26°)

cos (90° – 3A) = cos (A – 26°)

If we compare both sides

90° – 3A = A – 26°

-3A-A=-90-26

-4A=-116

A=116/4

A=29

Math is a highly valued academic subject because it develops critical thinking in our students. It is also important because it is very applicable in real-life – addition, subtraction, division, multiplication – are used in conjunction to help one in banking, accounting, investing and even in managing personal finances. Trigonometry is very difficult in maths. All students take tuitions to learn trigonometry. Like, other students I also have difficulty in it but thanks to Smile Tutor for providing me great home tuitions in mathematics. If you have any difficulties in maths subject and you can math tutor in your home by simply visiting https://smiletutor.sg/maths-tuition.

ReplyDeleteI will forever be indebted to the great Doctor TAKUTA for fixing my broken marriage after my husband left me for his mistress for 3 months. I never believed in spells until my friend introduced me to him. At first, I was skeptical about him because I heard a lots about false spell casters but I put my doubts behind me for i was desperate to get my husband back and I did according to what he instructed me to do. Now my husband is back just within 48 hours of contacting him. I'm living happily with my husband again after months of divorce and I will not rest till he's known all over the world. He's also specialize in money spells, lottery spells, sickness spells E.T.C. Get connected with Doctor Takuta now, his email is takutaspellalter@gmail.com or WhatsApp on +27788634102
