L x Setion 5-5 Solving Right Tringles* FIGURE In the previous setions we hve pplied trigonometri nd irulr funtions in the solutions of vriety of signifint prolems. In this setion we re interested in the prtiulr lss of prolems involving right tringles. A right tringle is tringle with one 90 ngle. Referring to Figure, our ojetive is to find ll unknown prts of right tringle, given the mesure of two sides or the mesure of one ute ngle nd side. This is lled solving right tringle. Trigonometri funtions ply entrl role in this proess. To strt, we lote right tringle in the first qudrnt of retngulr oordinte system nd oserve, from the definition of the trigonometri funtions, six trigonometri rtios involving the sides of the tringle. [Note tht the right tringle is the referene tringle for the ngle.] *This setion provides signifint pplition of trigonometri funtions to rel-world prolems. However, it my e postponed or omitted without loss of ontinuity, if desired. Some my wnt to over the setion just efore Setions 7- nd 7-2.

Using these designtions for n ritrry right tringle removed from oordinte system, we hve the following: RIGHT TRIANGLE RATIOS Hyp Opp sin Opp Hyp os Adj Hyp s Hyp Opp se Hyp Adj Adj 0 90 tn Opp Adj ot Adj Opp Explore/Disuss For given vlue, 0 90, explin why the vlue of eh of the six trigonometri funtions is independent of the size of the right tringle tht ontins. TABLE Angle to Nerest Signifint Digits for Side Mesure 2 0 or 0. 3 or or The use of the trigonometri rtios for right tringles is mde ler in the following exmples. Regrding omputtionl ury, we use Tle s guide. (The tle is lso printed inside the k over of this ook for esy referene.) We will use rther thn in mny ples, relizing the ury indited in Tle is ll tht is ssumed. Another word of ution: when using your lultor e sure it is set in degree mode.

4 382 5 TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS CAUTION It is importnt to note tht sin does not men /(sin 0.496). The supersript is prt of funtion symol, nd sin represents the inverse sine funtion. Inverse trigonometri funtions re developed in detil in Setion 5-9. Fortuntely, we n find diretly using lultor. Most lultors of the type used in this ook hve the funtion keys sin, os, nd tn or their equivlents (hek your mnul). These funtion keys tke us from trigonometri rtio k to the orresponding ute ngle in degree mesure when the lultor is in degree mode. Thus, if sin 0.496, then we n write either rsin or sin We hoose the ltter nd proeed s follows: sin or To the nerest hundredth degree To the nerest minute Chek sin Explore/Disuss 2 Solve eh of the following for to the nerest hundredth of degree using lultor.
