How to use the trig ratios to find missing sides and missing angles on right triangles?
Basic Trigonometry Review
A review of basic trigonometry: Sine, Cosine & Tangent including how to use the ratios to find missing sides and missing angles on right triangles.
Trig Review Lesson
Right triangles have ratios to represent the angles formed by the hypotenuse and its legs. Sine ratios, along with cosine and tangent ratios, are ratios of the lengths of two sides of the triangle. Sine ratios in particular are the ratios of the length of the side opposite the angle they represent over the hypotenuse. Sine ratios are useful in trigonometry when dealing with triangles and circles.
Right triangles have ratios that are used to represent their base angles. Cosine ratios, along with sine and tangent ratios, are ratios of two different sides of a right triangle. Cosine ratios are specifically the ratio of the side adjacent to the represented base angle over the hypotenuse. In order to find the measure of the angle, we must understand inverse trigonometric functions.
Tangent Ratios - Solving Problems with the Tangent Ratio
Right triangles have ratios that are used to represent their base angles. Tangent ratios, along with cosine and sine ratios, are ratios of two different sides of a right triangle. Tangent ratios are the ratio of the side opposite to the side adjacent the angle they represent. In order to find the measure of the angle itself, one must understand inverse trigonometric functions.
