Verifying Trigonometric Identities
Precalculus 5.2
Introduction
In this section, you will study techniques for verifying
trigonometric identities.
Remember that a conditional equation is an equation
that is true for only some of the values in its domain.
For example, the conditional equation
sinx = 0
Introduction
On the other hand, an equation that is true for
all real values in the domain of the variable is
an identity. For example,
the familiar equation
Identity
sin2x = 1 – cos2x
Conditional equation
is true for all real numbers x. So, it is an identity.
is true only for x = n, where n is an integer. When you
find these values, you are solving the equation.
Verifying Trigonometric Identities
Although there are similarities, verifying that a trigonometric
equation is an identity is quite different from solving an
equation. There is no well-defined set of rules to follow in
verifying trigonometric identities, and the process is best
learned by practice.

Introduction
To solve a trigonometric equation, use standard algebraic
techniques such as collecting like terms and factoring.
Solving Trigonometric Equations
Your preliminary goal in solving a trigonometric equation
is to isolate the trigonometric function in the equation.
Precalculus 5.3
For example, to solve the equation 2 sin x = 1, divide each
side by 2 to obtain
Introduction
Introduction
To solve for x, note in Figure 5.6 that the equation
has solutions x =  /6 and x = 5 /6 in the interval [0, 2).
Moreover, because sin x has a period of 2, there are
infinitely many other solutions, which can be written as
and
General solution
where n is an integer, as shown in Figure 5.6.
Figure 5.6
Introduction
Another way to show that the equation
many solutions is indicated in Figure 5.7.
Example 1
has infinitely
Solve sin x  2   sin x
Any angles that are coterminal with  /6 or 5 /6 will also be
solutions of the equation.
When solving trigonometric
equations, you should write
your answer(s) using exact
values rather than decimal
approximations.

The double-angle formulas can be used to obtain the following
power-reducing formulas. Example 5 shows a typical power
reduction that is used in calculus.
Half-Angle Formulas
You can derive some useful alternative forms of the
power-reducing formulas by replacing u with u / 2. The results
are called half-angle formulas.

Product-to-Sum Formulas
Occasionally, it is useful to reverse the procedure and write a
sum of trigonometric functions as a product. This can be
accomplished with the following sum-to-product formulas.

Example 12
Ignoring air resistance, the range of a projectile
fired at an angle  with the horizontal and
with an initial velocity of v0 feet per second is
given by r  161 v0 2 sin  cos  , where r is the
horizontal distance (in feet) that the projectile
will travel. A place kicker for a football team
can kick a football from ground level with an
initial velocity of 78 feet per second.
