**8.3 Trigonometric Ratios of Some Specific Angles
**

From geometry, you are already familiar with the construction of angles of 30°, 45°,

60° and 90°. In this section, we will find the values of the trigonometric ratios for these

angles and, of course, for 0°.

182

MATHEMATICS

**Trigonometric Ratios of 45°
**

In ∆ ABC, right-angled at B, if one angle is 45°, then

the other angle is also 45°, i.e., ∠ A = ∠ C = 45°

(see Fig. 8.14).

So,

BC = AB

(Why?)

Now, Suppose BC = AB = a.

Then by Pythagoras Theorem, AC2 = AB2 + BC2 = a2 + a2 = 2a2,

and, therefore,

Fig. 8.14

AC = a 2 ⋅

**Using the definitions of the trigonometric ratios, we have :

**Trigonometric Ratios of 30° and 60°
**

Let us now calculate the trigonometric ratios of 30°

and 60°. Consider an equilateral triangle ABC. Since

each angle in an equilateral triangle is 60°, therefore,

∠ A = ∠ B = ∠ C = 60°.

Draw the perpendicular AD from A to the side BC

(see Fig. 8.15).

Fig. 8.15

Now

∆ ABD ≅ ∆ ACD (Why?)

Therefore,

BD = DC

and

∠ BAD = ∠ CAD (CPCT)

Now observe that:

∆ ABD is a right triangle, right- angled at D with ∠ BAD = 30° and ∠ ABD = 60°

(see Fig. 8.15).

INTRODUCTION TO TRIGONOMETRY

**As you know, for finding the trigonometric ratios, we need to know the lengths of the
**

sides of the triangle. So, let us suppose that AB = 2a.

Then,

BD =

BC = a

AD2 = AB2 – BD2 = (2a)2 – (a)2 = 3a2,

and

AD = a 3

**Trigonometric Ratios of 0° and 90°
**

Let us see what happens to the trigonometric ratios of angle

A, if it is made smaller and smaller in the right triangle ABC

(see Fig. 8.16), till it becomes zero. As ∠ A gets smaller and

smaller, the length of the side BC decreases.The point C gets

closer to point B, and finally when ∠ A becomes very close

to 0°, AC becomes almost the same as AB (see Fig. 8.17).

Fig. 8.17

Fig. 8.16

184

MATHEMATICS

**When ∠ A is very close to 0°, BC gets very close to 0 and so the value of
**

BC

sin A =

is very close to 0. Also, when ∠ A is very close to 0°, AC is nearly the

AC

AB

same as AB and so the value of cos A =

is very close to 1.

AC

This helps us to see how we can define the values of sin A and cos A when

A = 0°. We define : sin 0° = 0 and cos 0° = 1.

Using these, we have :

tan 0° =

sin 0°

1 ,

= 0, cot 0° =

which is not defined. (Why?)

cos 0°

tan 0°

1

1 ,

= 1 and cosec 0° =

which is again not defined.(Why?)

cos 0°

sin 0°

Now, let us see what happens to the trigonometric ratios of ∠ A, when it is made

larger and larger in ∆ ABC till it becomes 90°. As ∠ A gets larger and larger, ∠ C gets

smaller and smaller. Therefore, as in the case above, the length of the side AB goes on

decreasing. The point A gets closer to point B. Finally when ∠ A is very close to 90°,

∠ C becomes very close to 0° and the side AC almost coincides with side BC

(see Fig. 8.18).

sec 0° =

Fig. 8.18

When ∠ C is very close to 0°, ∠ A is very close to 90°, side AC is nearly the

same as side BC, and so sin A is very close to 1. Also when ∠ A is very close to 90°,

∠ C is very close to 0°, and the side AB is nearly zero, so cos A is very close to 0.

So, we define :

sin 90° = 1 and cos 90° = 0.

**Now, why don’t you find the other trigonometric ratios of 90°?
**

We shall now give the values of all the trigonometric ratios of 0°, 30°, 45°, 60°

and 90° in Table 8.1, for ready reference.

**Remark : From the table above you can observe that as ∠ A increases from 0° to
**

90°, sin A increases from 0 to 1 and cos A decreases from 1 to 0.

Let us illustrate the use of the values in the table above through some examples.

Example 6 : In ∆ ABC, right-angled at B,

AB = 5 cm and ∠ ACB = 30° (see Fig. 8.19).

Determine the lengths of the sides BC and AC.

Solution : To find the length of the side BC, we will

choose the trigonometric ratio involving BC and the

given side AB. Since BC is the side adjacent to angle

C and AB is the side opposite to angle C, therefore

AB

= tan C

BC

i.e.,

which gives

**To find the length of the side AC, we consider
**

sin 30° =

AC

(Why?)

i.e.,

AC

i.e.,

AC = 10 cm

**Note that alternatively we could have used Pythagoras theorem to determine the third
**

side in the example above,

i.e.,

AC =

AB2 + BC 2 = 52 + (5 3) 2 cm = 10cm.

**Example 7 : In ∆ PQR, right - angled at
**

Q (see Fig. 8.20), PQ = 3 cm and PR = 6 cm.

Determine ∠ QPR and ∠ PRQ.

Solution : Given PQ = 3 cm and PR = 6 cm.

PQ

= sin R

PR

Therefore,

Fig. 8.20

=

sin R =

6 2

or

So,

∠ PRQ = 30°

and therefore,

∠ QPR = 60°.

(Why?)

You may note that if one of the sides and any other part (either an acute angle or any

side) of a right triangle is known, the remaining sides and angles of the triangle can be

determined.

Solution : Since, sin (A – B) =

Solving (1) and (2), we get : A = 45° and B = 15°.

**8.4 Trigonometric Ratios of Complementary Angles
**

Recall that two angles are said to be complementary

if their sum equals 90°. In ∆ ABC, right-angled at B,

do you see any pair of complementary angles?

(See Fig. 8.21)

Fig. 8.21

**Now let us write the trigonometric ratios for ∠ C = 90° – ∠ A.
**

For convenience, we shall write 90° – A instead of 90° – ∠ A.

What would be the side opposite and the side adjacent to the angle 90° – A?

You will find that AB is the side opposite and BC is the side adjacent to the angle

90° – A. Therefore,

sin (90° – A) =

cos (90° – A) =

sec (90° – A) = cosec A,

cosec (90° – A) = sec A,

AC

= sec A

AB

**for all values of angle A lying between 0° and 90°. Check whether this holds for
**

A = 0° or A = 90°.

Note : tan 0° = 0 = cot 90°, sec 0° = 1 = cosec 90° and sec 90°, cosec 0°, tan 90° and

cot 0° are not defined.
