In this lesson, we will look at co-function identities.
What are the Co-function Identities?
A function f is cofunction of a function g if f(A) = g(B) when A and B are complementary angles.
sin A = cos(90° - A)
cos A = sin(90° - A)
sin A = cos B, if A + B = 90°
sec A = csc(90° - A)
csc A = sec(90° - A)
sec A = csc B, if A + B = 90°
tan A = cot(90° - A)
cot A = tan(90° - A)
tan A = cot B, if A + B = 90°
