Unformatted text preview: the circular functions for angles, they were also useful in simplifying expressions involving the circular functions. In this section, we introduce several collections of identities which have uses in this course and beyond. Our first set of identities is the ‘Even / Odd’ identities.1 Theorem 10.12. Even / Odd Identities: For all applicable angles θ, • cos(−θ) = cos(θ) • sin(−θ) = − sin(θ) • tan(−θ) = − tan(θ) • sec(−θ) = sec(θ) • csc(−θ) = − csc(θ) • cot(θ) = − cot(θ) In light of the Quotient and Reciprocal Identities, Theorem 10.6, it suffices to show cos(−θ) = cos(θ) and sin(−θ) = − sin(θ). The remaining four circular functions can be expressed in terms of cos(θ) and sin(θ) so the proofs of their Even / Odd Identities are left as exercises. Consider an angle θ plotted in standard position. Let θ0 be the angle coterminal with θ with 0 ≤ θ0 < 2π . (We can construct the angle θ0 by rotating counter-clockwise from the positive x-axis to the terminal side of θ as pictured below.) Since θ and θ0 are co...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
