1 . EVALUATIN F TIGNMETIC FUNCTINS In this section, we obtain values of the trigonometric functions for quadrantal angles, we introduce the idea of reference angles, and we discuss the use of a calculator to evaluate trigonometric functions of general angles. In Definition., the domain of each trigonometric function consists of all angles for which the denominator in the corresponding ratio is not zero. Because r > 0, it follows that sin /r and cos /r are defined for all angles. However, tan / and sec r/ are not defined when the terminal side of lies anlong the ais (so that 0). Likewise, cot / and csc r/ are not defined when the terminal side of lies along the ais (so that 0). Therefore, when ou deal with a trigonometric function of a quadrantal angle, ou must check to be sure that the function is actuall defined for that angle. Eample Find the values (if the are defined) of the si trigonometric functions for the quadrantal angle 90 (or ). In order to use Definition, we begin b choosing an point ( 0, ) with > 0, on the terminal side of the 90 angle (Figure ). Because 0, it follows that tan 90 and sec 90 are undefined. Since > 0, we have r Therefore, sin 90 cos 90 0 r r r 0 csc 90 cot The values of the trigonometric functions for other quadrantal angles are found in a similar manner. The results appear in Table.. Dashes in the table indicate that the function is undefined for that angle. Table. degrees radians sin cos tan cot sec csc

2 It follows from Definition. that the values of each of the si trigonometric functions remain unchanged if the angle is replaced b a coterminal angle. If an angle eceeds one revolution or is negative, ou can change it to a nonnegative coterminal angle that is less than one revolution b adding or subtracting an integer multiple of 0 (or radians). For instance, sin 50 sin( 50 0 ) sin 90. sec 7 sec ( 7 ( )) sec. cos ( 0 ) cos ( 0 + ( 0 ) ) cos 0. In Eamples. and., replace each angle b a nonnegative coterminal angle that is less than on revolution and then find the values of the si trigonometric functions (if the are defined). Eample B dividing 0 b 0, we find that the largest integer multiple of 0 that is less than 0 is Thus, 0 ( 0 ) (r we could have started with 0 and repeatedl subtracted 0 until we obtained 0.) It follows that sin 0 sin 0 cos 0 cos 0 tan 0 tan 0 csc 0 csc 0 sec 0 sec 0 cot 0 cot 0 Eample We repeatedl add to until we obtain a nonnegative coterminal angle: + (still negative) +. Therefore, b Table. for quadrantal angles, sin sin cot cot 0 cos cos 0 csc csc and both tan and sec are undefined. 9
