1 TRIGONOMETRY Compound & Double angle formulae In order to master this section you must first learn the formulae, even though they will be given to you on the matric formula sheet. We call these formulae the compound angle formulae since the angle in question is not a single angle but the combination of two (or more) angles. 9 LESSON Notice that the sin expansion alternates sin (a + b) = sin a cos b + cos a sin b sin (a b) = sin a cos b cos a sin b } between the sin and cos functions, and it keeps the original sign between the terms. same sign Notice that the cos expansion repeats cos cos cos (a + b) = cos a cos b sin a sin b cos (a b) = cos a cos b + sin a sin b } and then sin sin, and changes the original sign between the terms. change sign So, how can we use these formulae to help solve problems? Can you remember the special angles? Besides 0 and the multiples of 90, we referred to 30, 45 and 60 as special angles since we could evaluate the trig functions of these angles without the use of a calculator. Now, by using the new compound angle formulae, any sum or difference of two special angles results in a new special angle which we can evaluate without the use of a calculator! So, 15 is a special angle, since it is formed by or Similarly, 75 is also a special angle, formed by , and so the list goes on. So, to evaluate sin 15 we can rewrite it as sin (45 30 ). Then we expand using the formulas above sin (45 30 ) = sin 45 cos 30 cos 45 sin 30 = 3 1 (at this stage use a calculator) = = 6 4 Try to see for yourself that sin 15 could have been expanded as sin (60 45 ) to give the same answer. In a similar way we can evaluate cos 75 : cos 75 = cos ( ) = cos 30 cos 45 sin 30 sin 45 = 3 1 = = 6 4 You should notice that cos 75 gave exactly the same answer as sin 15. This was no coincidence. You should remember a rule from grade 11 Both cos and sin are co-functions, and since their angles are complementary ( = 90 ), they are equal. This can be shown, using the appropriate reduction formula, as follows: sin q = cos (90 q) \ sin 15 = cos (90 15 ) = cos 75 Did you know that we can now verify the co-function reduction formulae using our knowledge of compound angles? Let s see cos (90 q) = cos 90 cos q + sin 90 sin q (Note: cos 90 = 0 and sin 90 = 1) Page 145

2 = 0 cos q + 1 sin q = sin q Example Solution Examples Rewrite each of the following as the sin or cos of a single angle and evaluate where possible. 1. cos 40 cos 50 sin 40 sin 50. sin 110 cos 10 cos 90 cos 80 Solutions 1. cos 40 cos 50 sin 40 sin 50 = cos ( ) = cos (90 ) = 0. sin 110 cos 10 cos 90 cos 80 = sin ( ) cos 10 cos ( )cos 80 = sin 70 cos 10 cos 70 cos 80 Now the expansion is starting to take on a more familiar form but, it goes sin cos, cos cos. So more manipulation is required. Remember from earlier that cos 80 = sin 10 = sin 70 cos 10 cos 70 sin 10 = sin (70 10 ) = sin 60 3 = special angle We notice that we have the cos cos, sin sin expansion, which means that we have the cos of a compound angle. Now we write the expansion as a single cos of the repeated angles. Remember to change the sign found between the terms since we are working with cos This example is significantly more complicated. Before we can even consider the type of expansion it is advisable to always express all angles as equivalent acute angles, using the appropriate reduction formulae. We notice that we have the sin cos, cos sin expansion, which means that we have the sin of a compound angle. We write the expansion as a single sin using the repeated angles. Remember to keep the sign found between the terms since we are working with sin Activity Activity 1 1. Verify the following using the compound angle formulae: 1.1 cos (90 + q) = sin θ 1. sin (360 q) = sin θ. Rewrite the following as the sin or cos of a single angle and evaluate where possible..1 sin x cos y sin y cos x. cos sin 88 + sin cos 88 Page 146

3 .3 cos 7x cos 3x sin 7x sin 3x.4 cos 6 cos 17 + sin 118 cos 73 Up until this point we have been content with combining angles which were different in nature. But what happens if, for example, we combine the same angle with itself? We know that cos 60 = 1. But cos 60 can also be written as cos ( ) Applying the compound angle formulae: sin 30 = 1 cos 30 = 3 cos ( ) = cos 30 cos 30 sin 30 sin 30 = = = 4 = 1 Confirming the result shown earlier. We can generalise this finding, and others, by working with variables instead. Lets see what happens when we expand sin q and cos q. Note: Both of these expansions are given on the matric formula sheet. sin q = sin (q + q) = sin q cos q + cos q sin q (combining the like terms) = sin q cos q i.e. sin q = sin q cos q This means that sin 50 can be written as sin 5 cos 5 Note: This double angle expansion is true for sin only. (We still need to explore what will happen when we expand the cos of a double angle). e.g. Expanding sin 80 (If q = 80, then q = 40 ) sin 80 = sin 40 cos 40 (But we can expand sin 40 again, similar ( sin 0 cos 0 ) to when we factorised differences of two perfect squares repeatedly in grade 9 and = ( sin 0 cos 0 ) cos ) = 4 sin 0 cos 0 cos 40 We can see that this process can continue indefinitely. However, you needn t worry about this. It will always be clear, in the questions that follow (as well as those in the final examination), when we have gone far enough For now it is just important to be able to perform the expansion. Now let s see what the cos expansion of a double angle looks like. cos q = cos (q + q) = cos q cos q + sin q sin q = cos q sin q i.e. cos q = cos q sin q Page 147 Page 1 Lesson 1 Algebra

4 However, this result can be modified by using the special identity you learnt in grade 11: from sin q + cos q = 1 sin q = 1 cos q cos q = 1 sin q It is then possible to express the cos expansion of a double angle in terms of sin or cos only! For cos only: cos q = cos q sin q = cos q (1 cos q) = cos q 1 + cos q = cos q 1 \ cos q = cos q 1 For sin only: cos q = cos q sin q = (1 sin q) sin q = 1 sin q sin q = 1 sin q sin q = 1 cos q cos q = 1 sin q \ cos q = 1 sin q It is for this reason that the cos expansion of a double angle is listed as follows on the formula sheet: { cos a = cos a sin a 1 sin a cos a 1 It will only become clearer to you, at a later stage, which form of the expansion is more useful and why, based on the specifics of each individual question. e.g. Expanding cos 80 (If q = 80, then q = 40 ) cos 80 = cos 40 sin 40 Here too the process of halving the angle can continue or = cos 40 1 indefinitely. Just notice that you will always have a choice as or = 1 sin 40 to how you expand the cos of a double angle, to form the resultant expansion in terms of a single angle. This expansion can be done in terms of sin only, cos only or a combination of both functions. Let s now focus on a number of examples where the use of double and compound angle formulae can be used to simplify or evaluate expressions. Later we will use this knowledge to prove identities and even solve equations. But, always remember that a thorough knowledge of algebra is essential in order to simplify the trigonometric expressions that you will encounter e.g. Evaluate without the use of a calculator: (cos 15 + sin 15 ) (cos 15 + sin 15 ) = cos 15 + sin 15 cos 15 + sin 15 (FOIL out the bracket) = (cos 15 + sin 15 ) + ( sin 15 cos 15 ) (Rearranged) sin q + cos q = 1 since sin q cos q = sin q \ sin 15 + cos 15 = 1 \ sin 15 cos 15 = sin( 15 ) = sin 30 = 1 + sin 30 = = 1,5 e.g. Express the following in terms of trig ratios of angle x: Page 148

5 (This is an important concept which will allow you to prove identities and, more importantly, to solve equations later on in this chapter.) 1. sin 3x Now we can apply the double angle. cos 3x formulae learnt earlier since two of the 1. sin 3x = sin(x + x) = sin x cos x + cos x sin x Express as the sum of two angles so that we can use our compound angle formulae, and in doing so, decompose the angles into smaller pieces = ( sin x cos x) cos x + (cos x sin x) sin x = sin x cos x + sin x cos x sin 3 x = 3 sin x cos x sin 3 x. cos 3x = cos (x + x) = cos x cos x sin x sin x = (cos x sin x) cos x ( sin x cos x) sin x = cos 3 x sin x cos x sin x cos x = cos 3 x 3 sin x cos x angles are not single yet. Remember that we can expand cos x in three different ways. All 3 would have been acceptable here. Apply the double angle formulae where necessary. Remember that we can expand cos x in three ways Activity Activity 1. Evaluate the following without the use of a calculator: 1.1 sin 15 cos cos 15 sin sin cos, sin,5 cos,5 1.6 cos 15. Using the double angle formulae, derive a formula for sin x and cos x in terms of sin and cos of ( x ). 3. Show that sin (45 + x) sin (45 x) = 1 cos x As was mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, double and compound angles can be found in almost every aspect of trigonometry and can almost certainly be found, often in disguised form, in every trig question in the examination. Page 149 Page 1 Lesson 1 Algebra

7 . cos 46 = cos (68 ) = cos 68 cos + sin 68 sin = ( 1 m 1 ).(m) + (m).( 1 m 1 ) = m. 1 m Now use the (cos) Note: It may have been easier to recognise cos46 = sin44 and then to use our answer from part 1. Working with identities When working with identities we will usually be required to prove one side equal to the other. In the process we work with the left hand side (LHS) independently to the right hand side (RHS). As a general rule, as strange as it may seem, we work with the harder looking of the two sides. Remember that almost always good algebra underpins the manipulation taking place. Here are some basic steps to follow: 1. Always try to convert all terms to sin s and cos s. tan x = cos sin x x. When adding fractions, form LCD s and simplify. In doing so, through cross multiplying, the numerators can become modified and often form the square identity sin x + cos x = 1. This identity can also be expressed as: sin x = 1 cos x cos x = 1 sin x 3. Look to see if we can use the compound or double angle formulae. It is usually easier to change compound angles to single angles. So when one side of an identity contains single angles only and the other side a combination of compound/double and single angles this is the side that we must choose to work with. Let s try to put this theory into practice sin x + cos x + 1 e.g. Prove the identity: = cos x Remember that sin x + cos x sin x + cos x + 1 LHS: sin x + cos x We express each trig function in terms of x only. The right hand side of the identity directs our thinking = ( sin x cos x) + ( cos x 1) + 1 sin x + cos x = sin x cos x + cos x sin x + cos x cos x.(sin x + cos x) = (sin x + cos x) = cos x = RHS Let s consider another identity sin x cos x e.g. Prove: = tan x cos 4 x sin 4 x = cos x.(sin x + cos x) sin x + cos x compound angle expansion. we could choose any one of three expansions for cos x. This expansion works best here. Remember to factorise We can only consider cancelling out terms once the top and the bottom are expressed as products. Although earlier it was suggested that we should always work with the side containing the double angles, and then express these as single angles, in this instance it is better to work with the LHS first.. There is more to do sin x RHS = tan x = cos x It is possible to simplify both sides of an identity, so long as you work with the sides independently, as we have done here. Page 151 Page 1 Lesson 1 Algebra

8 sin x cos x LHS: cos 4 x sin 4 x = sin x (cos x sin x)(cos x + sin x) factorise double angle special identity Factorise, since we have a difference of two perfect squares AND we have a single sin x = angle, so there is no need to use (cos x)(1) the double angle formulae. sin x = cos x = RHS Before attempting some identities, in the form of an exercise, let s try one more! sin 3x e.g. Prove: cos 3x sin x cos x = NOTICE THE FRACTIONS sin 3x LHS: = cos 3x sin 3x cos x sin x cos x = sin x cos x sin 3x cos x cos 3x sin x = sin x cos x sin (3x x) = sin x cos x = sin x sin x cos x sin x cos x = sin x cos x = = RHS cos 3x sin x sin x cos x LCD: sin x cos x Form the LCD so that we are able to combine the fractions. Once we have combined the numerators over a single denominator we should notice a very specific relationship We have the compound angle expansion for sin, so we can simply reverse the process to obtain sin x. Further algebraic manipulation gives us the result we were looking for. Activity Activity 3 1. Prove the following: 1.1 tan x + cos x sin x = sin x 1. sin (45 x) = 1 sin x sin x sin x = (1 + cos x sin x) cos x cos x +. Prove: 3 sin x sin x = 1 + cos x sin x 1 cos x sin x 3. Prove: tan x = sin x cos x Page 15

10 Hopefully you are starting to recognise how quadratics can be disguised BUT the big hint to use the double/compound angle formulae is in the comparison between the angles of each term. The cos double angle is always a very useful and powerful expansion since it can be rewritten in terms of sin or cos only, of the single angle. So, what would the sin of a double angle look like in an equation, and how do we go about solving? e.g. Determine the general solution to the equation sin x 3 cos x = 0. Always start by making a comparison of the angles which the trig functions are operating on. They should be Not the operating on the same variable (both x s) but they might same angle. have different sizes, in that one is double the other. This is the clear indictor that we must change the angle and write it as the trig function of a single angle. sin x 3 cos x = 0 When we change the sin double angle it is often easier than working with cos since it ( sin x cos x) 3 cos x = 0 can be only be expanded in one way. 4 sin x cos x 3 cos x = 0 Factorise and then solve for each root formed. cos x(4 sin x 3) = 0 cos x = 0 or sin x = 3 4 quadrant 1: x = 0 + k 360 quadrant 1: x = 48,6 + k 360 k ÎZ quadrant 4: x = k 360 quadrant : x = 131,4 + k 360 Essentially this is the same solution and so it is not necessary to give both here. k ÎZ Remember to include the k 360 part since we are giving the general solution to the equation. Let s attempt one more problem before working through an Remember at the end to answer the exercise. question, which asks e.g. Solve for x if: sin x + sin x = 6 cos x + 3; 180 x 180 for specific solutions within the given sin x + sin x = 6 cos x + 3 interval sin x cos x + sin x = 6 cos x + 3 sin x cos x + sin x 6 cos x 3 = 0 sin x( cos x + 1) + 3( cos x 1) = 0 sin x( cos x + 1) 3( cos x + 1) = 0 Take all terms to the one side and then convert sin x to sin x cos x so that all the angles are the same. Then look to factorise. Here you should see that we form a common bracket through grouping, ending with the more familiar looking ( cos x + 1)(sin x 3) = 0 product. cos x = 1 or sin x = 3 (no solution) Page 154

11 It is a good idea to always write your solution as a general solution, even if not asked to do so. Then you can add/ subtract multiples of 360 to the solutions, rejecting those that fall outside the specific intervals. Reference/key angle: x = 60 quadrant : x = ( ) + k 360 = 10 + k 360 \ x = { 40 ; 10 ; 480 } k ÎZ These are quadrant 3: x = ( ) + k 360 = 40 + k 360 \ x = { 480 ; 10 ; 40 } cos. \ the solutions that satisfy the interval 180 x 180 are x = { 10 ; 10 } the negative quadrants for Activity 4 Activity 1. Calculate the value(s) of x, x Î [ 90 ; 70 ] if sin x = cos x 1. Solve for x Î [ 90 ; 90 ] if cos x = cos x sin x + sin x + 1 Problem solving d & 3d trig Real world trig problems cannot always be expressed in two dimensions. In fact, more often than not, we need our diagrams to represent information in 3 dimensions. Trig can only ever be done in one triangle at a time. All 3-D and -D problems can be resolved into single triangles where information can be passed from one to the other. We must just remember to work with one triangle at a time and, where triangles/lines touch and share a common length, we are able to transfer information into another triangle. We must also remember that knowledge of the sine and cosine rules is essential since we will often work with non right-angled triangles. Page 155 Page 1 Lesson 1 Algebra

12 Let s look at an example to see what we mean. Probably before we start, let s analyse our diagram thoroughly, which is always a good starting point. (Try to see the relationship between the sides, the angles, and the boundary walls.) Since the sum of the angles in a triangle equals 180 this angle can be written as 90 q. So, if this angle is used in any calculation remember to apply the co-function reduction formulae: sin «cos. T B When there is one unknown angle in a triangle it is possible to express it in terms of the other two: here this is 180 (x + y). If this angle is used in any calculation (sine or cosine rule) remember to apply your reduction formulae. DB is a very important side since it connects the two different triangles. This will allow us to take θ into triangle BED or x and y into triangle DBT. Always try to find the common sides. θ x D 10 y This is the only given length so you will need to use it in your calculation(s). It is quite possible that you may need to take this value across into the triangle DBT. E Returning to our question In the diagram, B, D and E are points in the same horizontal plane. TB is a vertical telephone pole. The angle of elevation of T from D is q. B DE ^ = x, B ED ^ = y and DE = 10 m. 1. Express TB in terms of DB and q. Since we are working in a right-angled triangle we can use normal trigonometry. In BDT, tan q = TB DB \ TB = DB.tan q 10 sin y. Show that DB = sin (x + y) T B θ y x D 10 Look carefully at this question. The length 10 and the angles x and y are used, so we need to work within BDE. Since this is a non right-angles we know that we must use the sine or cosine rule. E DB sin y = DE sin D BE ^ DB sin y = 10 sin (180 (x + y)) 10 sin y DB = sin (x + y) From earlier we showed that D B ^ E = 180 (x + y) Using the reduction formula: sin (180 (x + y)) = sin (x + y) We conclude 3. If x = y, show that TB = From 1. TB = DB tan q, and From. DB = 10 sin y sin (x + y) 5 cos y tan q The examiner will often set a question, divided into separate parts, like we have here. If you look carefully you should notice that part i) and part ii) are often linked and direct our thinking in order to solve part iii). If you are stuck, always look to see if there is a link between the parts of a question Page 156

13 10 sin y so we conclude TB = sin (x + y) tan q 10 sin y TB = tan q = 10 sin y sin (y + y) sin (y) tan q 10 sin y TB = sin y cos y tan q = 5 cos y tan q At this stage we can use the additional given information: x = y. (Change all the x s to y s, since the final answer is expressed in terms of y.) Remember our friend the double angle?. in QRP: P ^ = 180 (30 + q) \ P ^ = 150 q 3. Show: h = 3(1 + 3 tan q) In the previous example you will recall that although compound/double angle formulae were not required for each solution, this knowledge was still required in order to obtain the final solution. Let s try one last example: S In the diagram, P, Q and R are three points in the same horizontal plane and SR is a vertical tower of height h metres. P The angle of elevation of S from Q is q, h P RQ ^ = q,r Q ^ P = 30 and PQ = 6 m. 6 m 1. Express QR in terms of h and a trig function of q. θ 30 θ. Express Q P ^ R in terms of q. Q R 3. Hence, show that h = 3(1 + 3 tan q) Solutions: 1. In QRS tan q = h QR Start by locating h. Then try to find a \ QR = h triangle involving q and h, which is quite tan q easily done. (Especially since DQRS is rightangled.) Notice that although this triangle shares the same base (QR) as DQRS the triangles are in different planes. At this stage look to see if there is a link between part i), part ii) and part iii). Which there is (and there usually will be). From 1. QR = h tan q and from. P ^ = 150 q so, using the sine rule in PQR: Now expand, using the compound angle formulae for the sin expansion. Also note that you will encounter special angles. QR sin P ^ = PQ sin ( P RQ) ^ QR sin (150 q) = 6 sin q 6 sin (150 q) \ QR = sin q Now substitute the solution obtained in part i) which is where the h part comes into the answer: QR = h tan q Multiply through by the 6 outside the bracket and then go about simplifying. h tan q = 6.(sin 150 cos q cos 150 sin q) sin q h = 6. ( cos 1 q + 3 sin q) tan q sin q h = 3 cos q sin q sin q sin q cos q } multiplied across Remember to rewrite tan q as sin q cos q Page 157 Page 1 Lesson 1 Algebra

14 h = 3 cos q cos q sin q cos q = tan q = 3(1 + 3 tan q) Divide each term of the numerator by the resultant denominator (cos q) and then simplify by factorising. Always remember to look at what is required in the question to direct your approach. Activity Activity 5: Mixed past paper questions a b 1.
