9.1 Polar Coordinates
Recording the position of an object using the
distance from a fixed point and an angle made
with a fixed ray from that point uses a polar
coordinate system.
The polar axis is usually a horizontal ray
directed towards the right from t

5-5 Solving Right Triangles
Sometimes you know the trigonometric values of an angle but not the
measure of the angle. In this case you need to use an inverse of the
trigonometric function to find the degree measure of the angle.

5.1 Angles and Degree Measures
Angle - rotation of two rays that share a fixed endpoint
Initial side - fixed ray of the angle (where the angle starts)
Terminal side - second ray rotates to form this angle (where the angle stops)
Vertex - fixed endpoint (w

2.1 Systems of Equations
A SYSTEM OF EQUATIONS is a set of two or more equations. To "solve" a system of
equations means to find values for the variables in the equation, which make all the
equations true at the same time.
The characteristics of the types
