1 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page Trigonometric Identities and Equations In 8 Michael Faraday discovered that when a wire passes by a magnet, a small electric current is produced in the wire. Now we generate massive amounts of electricity by simultaneously rotating thousands of wires near large electromagnets. Because electric current alternates its direction on electrical wires, it is modeled accurately by either the sine or the cosine function. We give many eamples of applications of the trigonometric functions to electricity and other phenomena in the eamples and eercises in this chapter, including a model of the wattage consumption of a toaster in Section 7., Eample Fundamental Identities 7.

Fundamental Identities NegativeAngle Identities Fundamental Identities Using the Fundamental Identities y (, y) y r y O r (, y) sin( ) = y r Figure = sin NegativeAngle Identities As suggested by the circle shown in Figure, an angle having the point, y on its terminal side has a corresponding angle with the point, y on its terminal side. From the definition of sine, sin y r and sin y r, so sin and sin are negatives of each other, or sin sin. (Section 5.) Figure shows an angle in quadrant II, but the same result holds for in any quadrant. Also, by definition, cos r and cos r, (Section 5.) TEACHING TIP Point out that in trigonometric identities, can be an angle in degrees, a real number, or a variable. so cos cos. We can use these identities for sin and cos to find tan in terms of tan : tan sin cos sin sin cos cos tan tan. Similar reasoning gives the following identities. csc csc, sec sec, cot cot This group of identities is known as the negativeangle or negativenumber identities. Fundamental Identities In Chapter 5 we used the definitions of the trigonometric functions to derive the reciprocal, quotient, and Pythagorean identities. Together with the negativeangle identities, these are called the fundamental identities. Fundamental Identities Reciprocal Identities cot tan Quotient Identities tan sin cos sec cos cot cos sin csc sin (continued)
3 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page Fundamental Identities 607 TEACHING TIP Encourage students to memorize the identities presented in this section as well as subsequent sections. Point out that numerical values can be used to help check whether or not an identity was recalled correctly. Pythagorean Identities sin cos tan sec NegativeAngle Identities sin() sin cos() cos csc() csc sec() sec cot csc tan() tan cot() cot NOTE The most commonly recognized forms of the fundamental identities are given above. Throughout this chapter you must also recognize alternative forms of these identities. For eample, two other forms of sin cos are sin cos and cos sin. Using the Fundamental Identities One way we use these identities is to find the values of other trigonometric functions from the value of a given trigonometric function. Although we could find such values using a right triangle, this is a good way to practice using the fundamental identities. EXAMPLE Finding Trigonometric Function Values Given One Value and the Quadrant If tan 5 and is in quadrant II, find each function value.

Simplify the radical. (Section R.7) We chose the negative square root since sec is negative in quadrant II.

CAUTION To avoid a common error, when taking the square root, be sure to choose the sign based on the quadrant of and the function being evaluated. Any trigonometric function of a number or angle can be epressed in terms of any other function. EXAMPLE Epressing One Function in Terms of Another Epress cos in terms of tan. Solution Since sec is related to both cos and tan by identities, start with tan sec. tan sec tan cos tan cos cos tan cos tan tan Take reciprocals. Reciprocal identity Take square roots.

5 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page Fundamental Identities 609 We can use a graphing calculator to decide whether two functions are identical. See Figure, which supports the identity sin cos. With an identity, you should see no difference in the two graphs. All other trigonometric functions can easily be epressed in terms of sin and/or cos. We often make such substitutions in an epression to simplify it. Y = Y Figure y = tan + cot y = cos sin EXAMPLE Rewriting an Epression in Terms of Sine and Cosine Write tan cot in terms of sin and cos, and then simplify the epression. Solution tan tan cot sin cot cos cos sin sin cos cos sin cos sin sin cos cos sin cos sin Quotient identities Write each fraction with the LCD. (Section R.5) Add fractions. Pythagorean identity Now try Eercise 55. The graph supports the result in Eample. The graphs of y and y appear to be identical. CAUTION When working with trigonometric epressions and identities, be sure to write the argument of the function. For eample, we would not write sin cos ; an argument such as is necessary in this identity. 7. Eercises Concept Check Fill in the blanks.. If tan.6, then tan.. If cos.65, then cos..

Verifying Trigonometric Identities Verifying Identities by Working with One Side Verifying Identities by Working with Both Sides Recall that an identity is an equation that is satisfied for all meaningful replacements of the variable. One of the skills required for more advanced work in mathematics, especially in calculus, is the ability to use identities to write epressions in alternative forms. We develop this skill by using the fundamental identities to verify that a trigonometric equation is an identity (for those values of the variable for which it is defined). Here are some hints to help you get started.
9 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page 6 7. Verifying Trigonometric Identities 6 Looking Ahead to Calculus Trigonometric identities are used in calculus to simplify trigonometric epressions, determine derivatives of trigonometric functions, and change the form of some integrals. TEACHING TIP There is no substitute for eperience when it comes to verifying identities. Guide students through several eamples, giving hints such as Apply a reciprocal identity, or Use a different form of the Pythagorean identity sin cos. Hints for Verifying Identities. Learn the fundamental identities given in the last section. Whenever you see either side of a fundamental identity, the other side should come to mind. Also, be aware of equivalent forms of the fundamental identities. For eample, sin is an alternative form of the identity sin cos. Try to rewrite the more complicated side of the equation so that it is identical to the simpler side.. It is sometimes helpful to epress all trigonometric functions in the equation in terms of sine and cosine and then simplify the result.. Usually, any factoring or indicated algebraic operations should be performed. For eample, the epression sin sin can be factored as sin. The sum or difference of two trigonometric epressions, such as sin cos, can be added or subtracted in the same way as any other rational epression. cos. cos sin sin cos sin cos sin cos cos sin sin cos 5. As you select substitutions, keep in mind the side you are not changing, because it represents your goal. For eample, to verify the identity tan cos, try to think of an identity that relates tan to cos. In this case, since sec cos and sec tan, the secant function is the best link between the two sides. 6. If an epression contains sin, multiplying both numerator and denominator by sin would give sin, which could be replaced with cos. Similar results for sin, cos, and cos may be useful. CAUTION Verifying identities is not the same as solving equations. Techniques used in solving equations, such as adding the same terms to both sides, or multiplying both sides by the same term, should not be used when working with identities since you are starting with a statement (to be verified) that may not be true. Verifying Identities by Working with One Side To avoid the temptation to use algebraic properties of equations to verify identities, work with only one side and rewrite it to match the other side, as shown in Eamples.
10 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page 6 6 CHAPTER 7 Trigonometric Identities and Equations For s =, cot + = csc (cos + sin ) The graphs coincide, supporting the conclusion in Eample. EXAMPLE Verifying an Identity (Working with One Side) Verify that the following equation is an identity. Solution We use the fundamental identities from Section 7. to rewrite one side of the equation so that it is identical to the other side. Since the right side is more complicated, we work with it, using the third hint to change all functions to sine or cosine. Steps Right side of given equation cot s csc scos s sin s csc scos s sin s cos s sin s sin s cos s sin s sin s sin s cot s Left side of given equation Reasons csc s sin s Distributive property (Section R.) cos s sin s sin s cot s; sin s The given equation is an identity since the right side equals the left side. Now try Eercise. tan ( + cot ) = sin The screen supports the conclusion in Eample. EXAMPLE Verifying an Identity (Working with One Side) Verify that the following equation is an identity. tan cot Solution We work with the more complicated left side, as suggested in the second hint. Again, we use the fundamental identities from Section 7.. tan cot tan tan cot tan tan tan sec cos sin sin tan Distributive property cot tan tan tan tan sec sec cos cos sin Since the left side is identical to the right side, the given equation is an identity. Now try Eercise 7.

Solution tan t cot t sin t cos t We transform the more complicated left side to match the right side. tan t cos t sin t sec t csc t tan t cot t sin t cos t tan t sin t cos t cot t sin t cos t sec t csc t sin t cos t cot t sin t cos t sin t cos t sin t cos t cos t sin t sin t cos t a b c a b a b a c b c (Section R.5) tan t cos sin t cos t t ; cot t sin t The third hint about writing all trigonometric functions in terms of sine and cosine was used in the third line of the solution. cos t sec t; sin t csc t Now try Eercise. TEACHING TIP Show that the identity in Eample can also be verified by multiplying the numerator and denominator of the left side by sin. EXAMPLE Verifying an Identity (Working with One Side) Verify that the following equation is an identity. Solution We work on the right side, using the last hint in the list given earlier to multiply numerator and denominator on the right by sin. sin cos sin sin cos sin sin cos sin cos cos sin cos sin cos sin sin cos Multiply by. (Section R.) y y y sin cos Lowest terms (Section R.5) (Section R.) Now try Eercise 7. Verifying Identities by Working with Both Sides If both sides of an identity appear to be equally comple, the identity can be verified by working independently on the left side and on the right side, until each side is changed into some common third result. Each step, on each side, must be reversible.
12 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page CHAPTER 7 Trigonometric Identities and Equations left right common third epression With all steps reversible, the procedure is as shown in the margin. The left side leads to a common third epression, which leads back to the right side. This procedure is just a shortcut for the procedure used in Eamples : one side is changed into the other side, but by going through an intermediate step. EXAMPLE 5 Verifying an Identity (Working with Both Sides) Verify that the following equation is an identity. Solution Both sides appear equally comple, so we verify the identity by changing each side into a common third epression. We work first on the left, multiplying numerator and denominator by cos. Multiply by. On the right side of the original equation, begin by factoring. We have shown that sec tan sin sin sec tan cos sec tan sec tan cos sec tan sec tan cos sec cos tan cos sec cos tan cos tan cos tan cos sin cos cos sin cos cos sin sin sin sin sin cos cos sin sin sin sin Distributive property y y y (Section R.)

13 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page Verifying Trigonometric Identities 67 CAUTION Use the method of Eample 5 only if the steps are reversible. There are usually several ways to verify a given identity. For instance, another way to begin verifying the identity in Eample 5 is to work on the left as follows. sin sec tan cos cos sec tan sin cos cos sin cos sin cos sin sin Fundamental identities (Section 7.) Add and subtract fractions. (Section R.5) Simplify the comple fraction. (Section R.5) Compare this with the result shown in Eample 5 for the right side to see that the two sides indeed agree.

A tuner may contain an inductor L and a capacitor C, as illustrated in Figure. The energy stored in the inductor at time t is given by and the energy stored in the capacitor is given by where F is the frequency of the radio station and k is a constant.

Sum and Difference Identities Cosine Sum and Difference Identities Cofunction Identities Sine and Tangent Sum and Difference Identities Cosine Sum and Difference Identities Several eamples presented earlier should have convinced you by now that cosa B does not equal cos A cos B. For eample, if A and B 0, then cosa B cos 0 cos while cos A cos B cos cos 0 0. We can now derive a formula for cosa B. We start by locating angles A and B in standard position on a unit circle, with B A. Let S and Q be the points where the terminal sides of angles A and B, respectively, intersect the circle. Locate point R on the unit circle so that angle POR equals the difference A B. See Figure. 0, (cos(a B), sin(a B)) R (cos A, sin A) S y Q (cos B, sin B O A A B B P (, 0) Figure Point Q is on the unit circle, so by the work with circular functions in Chapter 6, the coordinate of Q is the cosine of angle B, while the ycoordinate of Q is the sine of angle B. Q has coordinates cos B,sin B. In the same way, S has coordinates cos A,sin A, and R has coordinates cosa B,sinA B.
18 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page 6 6 CHAPTER 7 Trigonometric Identities and Equations Angle SOQ also equals A B. Since the central angles SOQ and POR are equal, chords PR and SQ are equal. By the distance formula, since PR SQ, cosa B sina B 0 Squaring both sides and clearing parentheses gives (Section.) Since sin cos for any value of, we can rewrite the equation as Subtract ; divide by. Although Figure shows angles A and B in the second and first quadrants, respectively, this result is the same for any values of these angles. To find a similar epression for cosa B, rewrite A B as A B and use the identity for cosa B. cosa B cosa B cos A cos B sin A sin B. cos A B cosa B sin A B cos A cos A cos B cos B sin A sin A sin B sin B. cosa B cos A cos B sin A sin B cosa B cos A cos B sin A sin B. cos A cosb sin A sinb cos A cos B sin Asin B cosa B cos A cos B sin A sin B Cosine difference identity Negativeangle identities (Section 7.) Cosine of a Sum or Difference cos(a B) cos A cos B sin A sin B cos(a B) cos A cos B sin A sin B These identities are important in calculus and useful in certain applications. Although a calculator can be used to find an approimation for cos 5, for eample, the method shown below can be applied to get an eact value, as well as to practice using the sum and difference identities. EXAMPLE Finding Eact Cosine Function Values Find the eact value of each epression. (a) cos 5 (b) cos 5 (c) cos 87 cos 9 sin 87 sin 9 Solution (a) To find cos 5, we write 5 as the sum or difference of two angles with known function values. Since we know the eact trigonometric function values of 5 and 0, we write 5 as 5 0. (We could also use ) Then we use the identity for the cosine of the difference of two angles.
19 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page 6 7. Sum and Difference Identities 6 TEACHING TIP In Eample (b), students may benefit from converting radians to 75 in order to realize that can be used in place of 5.

Cofunction Identities We can use the identity for the cosine of the difference of two angles and the fundamental identities to derive cofunction identities. TEACHING TIP Mention that these identities state that the trigonometric function of an acute angle is the same as the cofunction of its complement. Verify the cofunction identities for acute angles using complementary angles in a right triangle along with the righttrianglebased definitions of the trigonometric functions. Emphasize that these identities apply to any angle, not just acute angles. Cofunction Identities cos(90 ) sin cot(90 ) tan sin(90 ) cos sec(90 ) csc tan(90 ) cot csc(90 ) sec Similar identities can be obtained for a real number domain by replacing 90 with. Substituting 90 for A and for B in the identity for cosa B gives cos90 cos 90 cos sin 90 sin 0 cos sin sin. This result is true for any value of since the identity for cosa B is true for any values of A and B.
20 LIALMC07_0768.QXP /6/0 0:7 AM Page 6 6 CHAPTER 7 Trigonometric Identities and Equations TEACHING TIP Verify results from Eample using a calculator.

These are known as halfangle identities. To derive the identity for sin A, start with the following doubleangle identity for cosine and solve for sin. cos sin sin cos cos sin Add sin ; subtract cos. Divide by ; take square roots. (Section.) sin A cos A Let A, so A ; substitute. The sign in this identity indicates that the appropriate sign is chosen depending on the quadrant of. For eample, if A A is a quadrant III angle, we choose the negative sign since the sine function is negative in quadrant III. We derive the identity for cos A using the doubleangle identity cos cos. cos cos cos cos cos cos Add. Rewrite; divide by. Take square roots. cos A cos A Replace with A. An identity for tan A comes from the identities for sin A and cos A. tan A sin A cos A cos A cos A cos A cos A We derive an alternative identity for tan A using doubleangle identities. tan A sin A cos A sin A cos A cos A tan A sin A cos A sin A cos A Multiply by cos A in numerator and denominator.
