## What should I learn before trigonometry?

You should already be familiar with algebra and geometry before learning trigonometry. From algebra, you should be comfortable with manipulating algebraic expressions and solving equations. From geometry, you should know about similar triangles, the Pythagorean theorem, and a few other things, but not a great deal.

## How do you prove trigonometry problems?

Proving the problems on trigonometric identities:

1. 1. ( 1 – sin A)/(1 + sin A) = (sec A – tan A)2
2. Prove that, √{(sec θ – 1)/(sec θ + 1)} = cosec θ – cot θ. Solution:
3. tan4 θ + tan2 θ = sec4 θ – sec2 θ Solution:
4. 4. . cos θ/(1 – tan θ) + sin θ/(1 – cot θ) = sin θ + cos θ
5. Show that, 1/(csc A – cot A) – 1/sin A = 1/sin A – 1/(csc A + cot A) Solution:
6. 6. (

## Why do we use trigonometry?

Trigonometry is used to set directions such as the north south east west, it tells you what direction to take with the compass to get on a straight direction. It is used in navigation in order to pinpoint a location. It is also used to find the distance of the shore from a point in the sea.

## What are the principles of trigonometry?

In other words: The tangent of angle A = the length of the opposite side divided by the length of the adjacent side. The sine of angle A = the length of the opposite side divided by the length of the hypotenuse. The cosine of angle A = the length of the adjacent side divided by the length of the hypotenuse.

## What are trigonometric graphs?

Summary Graphs of Trigonometric Functions. Below are the graphs of the six trigonometric functions: sine, cosine, tangent, cosecant, secant, and cotangent. On the \$x\$-axis are values of the angle in radians, and on the \$y\$-axis is f (x), the value of the function at each given angle.

## Why is trigonometry used in physics?

Physics Owes a Lot to a Little-Loved Math Class. I’m talking about trigonometry, of course: that bastion of angles and triangles that is essential to calculating velocity, momentum, and much more.
