MA 111: Precalculus, NCSU Module 16, Video 2: Right Triangle Trigonometry, Identities F Learning Objectives 1. Cofunction Identities 2. Derive the Pythagorean Identities. 3. Define special angle triangles F Cofunction Identities Looking at a right triangle, notice the relationship between certain trigono- metric functions of complementary angles, Notice that α and β in the right triangle are complementary angles. Write down sides of triangle and the sine and cosine of complementary angles sinα = cosβ = sinβ = cosα = Cofunction property for sine and cosine Notice with the triangle this cofunction property would also be true for what other pairs of trigonometric functions? 1 F Pythagorean Identities Start with right triangle Pythagorean Identity: the sum of the squares of sides (legs) in a right triangle equals the square of the hypotenuse: ( leg ) 2 + ( leg ) 2 = (   #### You've reached the end of your free preview.
