For all angles cos + sin = (This is the Pythagorean identity tan sin cos From the definitions of the reciprocal functions of sin x = cosec x (the cosecant of x, sometimes abbreviated to csc x cosx tan x = sec x (the secant of x = cot x (the cotangent of x it is possible to obtain several new identities. Because the cotangent is the reciprocal of the tangent, we have cot cos sin By dividing the Pythagorean identity cos + sin = throughout by cos we have + tan sec A similar division of the identity cos + sin = throughout by sin gives cot cosec

The following identities hold true for all angles A and B. sin (A + B = sin A cos B + cos A sin B. cos (A + B = cos A cos B  sin A sin B. sin (A  B = sin A cos B  cos A sin B. cos (A  B = cos A cos B + sin A sin B. The formula for tan (A +B can be worked out as sin Acos B cos Asin B sin( A B sin Acos B cos Asin B tan( A B cos Acos B cos Acos B cos( A B cos Acos B sin Asin B cos Acos B sin Asin B cos Acos B cos Acos B This formidable expression simplifies to tan (A + B = tan A + tan B tan A tan B The expression for tan (A B can be obtained similarly. tan (A  B = tan A  tan B + tan A tan B In each case the results for (AB can be derived from those for (A+B by reversing the + and  signs a useful revision hint!
4 Mathematics Revision Guides Further Trigonometric Identities and Equations Page 4 of 7 Double and Half Angles. By taking the compound angle formulae and replacing B with A, we obtain the double angle identities. sin (A + A = sin A cos A + cos A sin A = sin A cos A. cos (A + A = cos A cos A  sin A sin A = cos A  sin A. tan (A + A = tan A + tan A = tan A tan A tan A tan A The formula for cos A can be written in two other useful variant forms by using cos A+ sin A=. cos A  sin A = cos A ( cos A = cos A. cos A  sin A = (sin A  sin A =  sin A. The double angle formulae are thus: sin (A = sin A cos A cos (A = cos A  sin A = cos A =  sin A tan (A = tan A tan A By replacing A with ½A in the last two formulae for cos A, we have the half angle identities: cos A = cos ½A cos ½A = + cos A cos ½A = ½( + cos A cos A =  sin ½A sin ½A = cos A  sin ½A =  cos A sin ½A = ½(  cos A The above identities are useful in further calculus, especially in integration.

Using and proving identities is a skill which improves with practice. Example (: Find the values of sin 75 and cos 75, leaving the results as surds. From the results, also find the values of tan 75 and tan 5. (Note that tan 5 = cot 75 We treat 75 as and apply the identity sin ( = sin 45 cos 30 + cos 45 sin 30. Since sin 45 = cos 45 = or ( 3 or 3., the expression for sin 75 becomes (cos 30 + sin 30 To find cos 75, we substitute into the identity cos ( = cos 45 cos 30  sin 45 sin 30. This expression simplifies into or ( 3 or 3. (cos 30  sin 30 To find tan 75, we could either divide the result for cos 75 into the one for sin 75, or we could substitute into the compound angle tangent formula. The question asks for the former method. Dividing sin 75 by cos 75 we have tan 75 = 3 3 = = = =. (rationalising the denominator To find tan 5, we can divide the result for sin 75 into cos 75, or find the reciprocal of tan 75. = = = =. (rationalising the denominator

(Copyright Letts Educational, Revise AS and A Mathematics (004 ISBN , Example Proving Identities p.33 The first step is to start with the expression on one side of the identity, and then to replace parts of it with an equivalent form. The LHS is more complex, and so we can rewrite it using the double angle result for cos A. The LHS thus becomes two squares, and so it can be rewritten cos A sin A cos A sin A (cos A sin A(cos A sin A (cos A sin A, but then the top line can be recognised as the difference of After taking out cos A sin A as a factor, the expression becomes cos A + sin A, thus LHS = RHS..

8 Mathematics Revision Guides Further Trigonometric Identities and Equations Page 8 of 7 Example (6: Show that sin P + sin Q = sin ½(P+Q cos ½(PQ. Hint: use P = A + B and Q = A  B Take the two compound angle sine identities and add them together: sin (A + B + sin (A  B = (sin A cos B + cos A sin B + (sin A cos B  cos A sin B = sin A cos B. Substituting P = A + B and Q = A B, we have A = ½(P+Q and B = ½(PQ. The summed expression above therefore becomes sin P + sin Q = sin ½(P + Q cos ½(P  Q. Had we subtracted the second sine identity from the first, we would have had sin (A + B  sin (A  B = (sin A cos B + cos A sin B  (sin A cos B  cos A sin B = cos A sin B, or sin P  sin Q = cos ½(P + Q sin ½(P  Q. The cosine identities are treated similarly. cos (A + B + cos (A  B = (cos A cos B  sin A sin B + (cos A cos B + sin A sin B = cos A cos B. cos P + cos Q = cos ½(P + Q cos ½(P  Q. cos (A + B  cos (A  B = (cos A cos B  sin A sin B  (cos A cos B + sin A sin B =  sin A sin B. (watch the minus sign here! cos P  cos Q = sin ½(P + Q sin ½(P  Q.

11 Mathematics Revision Guides Further Trigonometric Identities and Equations Page of 7 Solving more trigonometric equations. Identities may be used to rewrite an equation in a form that is easier to solve. Example (4 : Solve the equation sin x + cos x  = 0 for  x. We must first use sin x =  cos x to change the equation into a quadratic in cos x. Thus sin x + cos x  = 0 (cos x + cos x  = 0  cos x + cos x  = 0 cos x cos x = 0 This factorises at once into (cos x( cos x = 0. cos x = 0 when x = or x = . cos x =, or cos x = 0.5, when x = 3 or x = 3. The solutions to the equation are therefore x = and 3 (illustrated below. It is important not to simply cancel out cos x from the equation, because there are solutions where cos x = 0, i.e. where x =. (Graph for illustration only students are not expected to sketch it!
12 Mathematics Revision Guides Further Trigonometric Identities and Equations Page of 7 Example (5: Solve the equation cos x + sin x + = 0 for  x. This equation can be turned into a quadratic in sin x by using the identity cos x =  sin x. This gives  sin x + sin x + = 0, or  sin x + sin x + = 0. Using the general formula, we substitute x = sin x, a = , b = and c =. x b b 4ac a sin 7 4 x. The two solutions are sin x =.8 or sin x = to 3 d.p. The positive value can be rejected at once, since no angle has a sine greater than. The principal value of the other result is c and it falls within the range  x Using the fact that sin (x = sin x, another possible solution is c, but it falls outside the range. Since the sine function has a period of the other solution in the range is ( or.46 c.

The principal solution is =.36 c, but because the tangent function has a period of, another solution is (.36 + c or c. Example (7: Given that sin 3 = 3 sin  4 sin 3 (see Example 6, use this result to solve, for 0 < < 90, the equation 3 sin 6 cosec = 4.

(Harmonic Form Equations of the form above can be rewritten in the form R cos (or R sin (for suitable choices of angles and The four compound angle identities are : R cos( + = R cos cos  R sin sin R cos(  = R cos cos + R sin sin R sin(+ = R sin cos + R cos sin R sin(  = R sin cos  R cos sin Any expression of the form a cos b sin can be rewritten to match the above forms. Example (9: Express 3 cos 4 sinin the form R cos (Give in degrees, and from there solve 3 cos 4 sin.5 for R cos(  = 3 cos 4 sin is the closest match : R cos cos R sin sin 3 cos 4 sin Equating sine and cosine terms we have: R cos cos 3 cos Rcos 3. R sin sin sin R sin 4. Squaring the righthand sides gives R cos = 9 and R sin = 6 R (cos + sin = 5. The bracketed expression is simply, therefore R = When any expression of the form a cos b sin is rewritten in the form R cos (or R sin (then R = a b.

R sin cos R cos sin 5 sin cos R cos 5; R sin R = 5 3 and tan 5 c 5 sin cos3 sin (.76 c Example (: The water temperature ( C of a swimming pool is modelled on the equation W = 7  sin (5t . cos(5t, where t is the time in hours after midnight. (The multiple of 5 enters into the questions because the period of 360 degrees needs modifying into a period of 4 hours: 4 5 = 360. i Express the model equation in the form W = 7  R sin (5t +, where is positive. ii Show that the maximum temperature of the water cannot exceed 30 C according to the model. iii Find the time of day when the water reaches this maximum temperature. iv The management decide that the water temperature should not fall below 6 C during the opening hours of between 0730 and 00. Does the given model satisfy the requirements? i We must rearrange the brackets in the formula first: W = 7  sin (5t . cos(5t W = 7  ( sin (5t +. cos(5t Then continuing in the usual way we have R sin(5t + = sin(5t. cos(5t. R sin(5t cos R cos(5t sin sin(5t. cos(5t. Equating sine and cosine terms we have: R sin(5t cos sin(5t R cos =. R cos(5t sin. cos(5t R sin.. Hence R = ( ( or.973, and tan = the model equation is given by W = sin (5t =., hence ii Since the sine function cannot values outside the range  to, the temperature of the water cannot exceed ( C, or 9.97 C according to this model.
16 Mathematics Revision Guides Further Trigonometric Identities and Equations Page 6 of 7 iii This maximum temperature is reached when sin (5t =  (remember, we re subtracting!, i.e. when 5t = 70 5t =.3 t = 4.8 hours after midnight, or at about 449. iv (A sketch graph is useful here. The temperature of the water is at a maximum at about 500, and so it must take a minimum at about 0300, because this is a sine function with a 4hr period. By sketching, it can be seen that the water temperature exceeds 6 from about 0800 to 00. We must solve the equation sin (5t = sin (5t = sin (5t = sin (5t = (5t = 9.654, t = 8.07,.6 The answers in degrees must finally be converted into hours after midnight by first adding 360 to the negative value, giving 33.93, and then dividing both results by 5. Hence the water temperature = 6 C when t =.3 hours after midnight, or 08, or when t = 7.5 hours after midnight, or 073. By looking at the graph, the water temperature is above 6 between 073 and 08, which practically coincide with the opening hours!
17 Mathematics Revision Guides Further Trigonometric Identities and Equations Page 7 of 7 The angle between two straight lines. Example (3: Two straight lines have the equations x + y 5 = 0 and 3x y  = 0 respectively. What is the acute angle between them? Each of the lines makes a particular angle with the xaxis, measured anticlockwise. Thus is the angle between the line x + y 5 = 0 and the x axis, while is the angle between the line 3x  y  = 0 and the x axis. The gradient of the line x + y  5 = 0 is also the tangent of, and its value is ½. Similarly the gradient of the line 3x y  = 0 is the tangent of, namely 3. The acute angle between the lines is, and, by the triangle laws, = . Taking tangents we have tan = tan (  or tan tan tan tan tan Substituting tan = ½ and tan = 3, we can calculate the acute angle between the two lines using ( 3 3 tan 7 = 8.9 or.49 c. ( (3 Also note that the constant terms in the equations of the lines do not affect the result. Thus the acute angle between the lines x + y  6 = 0 and 3x y + 5 = 0 would also be 8.9 or.49 c. The general formula for the angle between two straight lines (not in scope of syllabus, given their gradients m and m, is tan m m m m. (It is not important which gradient is chosen as m ; if tan comes out negative, then disregarding the sign will still give the acute angle result.
