Simplifying Square Roots
To simplify a square root, you “take out” anything that is a perfect square.
Example: √63
What is the biggest perfect square that can be divided out of 63?
√63 = √9 ∙ √7 = 3 ∙ √7 = 3√7
Let’s practice a few more.

9.1 Notes: Geometric Mean & Similar Right Triangles
Explore:
Start with a right triangle, ∆𝐴𝐵𝐶, then draw an altitude from the right angle to the opposite side.
Label the new point of intersection on the hypotenuse D.
You have now created 3 similar right triangles!!!
Recall that similar triangles have __________________angle measures and
the sides are ______________________________________.
If you separate, rotate, and line up the three triangles you can see the similarity.
What segments are shown in more than one triangle? Use a highlighter to help you see.
These segments that are “shared” between two triangles are called geometric means.
When you set up proportions relating the sides of a triangle, they will be in the “means” position

9.2 Notes: The Pythagorean Theorem
Pythagorean Theorem – USED FOR RIGHT TRIANGLES ONLY!!!
If we have a right triangle, then 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 = 𝑐 2 , is used to find the third side of a triangle if we
are given two known side lengths.
a, b represent the two legs of the triangle, they form the right angle
c represents the hypotenuse of the triangle, across from the right angle (always longest)
A ________________________________ ________________________ is a set of three positive integers,
a,b, and c that satisfy the equation 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 = 𝑐 2 . For example:
Examples:

Then, find the area of the triangle using base and height.
9.3 The Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem
We know the Pythagorean Theorem, but how can I tell if I have a right triangle?
Converse of Pythagorean Theorem
If 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 = 𝑐 2 , then we have a right triangle. The converse of the Pythagorean Theorem is
used to determine if a triangle is right, obtuse or acute given 3 side lengths.
Practice:
Is this a right triangle? If not, is it obtuse or acute?

Law of Sines & Law of Cosines Notes
(extension of chapter 9 Trigonometry)
The trigonometric ratios we previously learned (sine, cosine, and tangent) can only be used to
solve right triangles. Today we will learn to solve oblique triangles.
You can use the Law of Sines to solve triangles when two angles and the length of any side are
known (AAS or ASA cases), or when the lengths of two sides and an angle opposite one of the
two sides are known (SSA case – be careful for the ambiguous case!).
You must have one opposite side and angle to create a full ratio!
LAW OF SINES ratios. Use two together to create and solve proportions.

I. Finding sides/angles in oblique triangles using law of sines.
1. Example using SSA case:
Solve the triangle for side c, angle B, and angle C.
2. Example using AAS case:
Solve the triangle for side a, side c, and angle A
3. Example using ASA case:
Solve the triangle for side a, side c, and angle C.
II. Finding the area of an oblique triangle using the sine ratio.
How do we get the height?
Write an expression for height in terms of side c and angle A.
Write an area formula in terms of sides b, c, and angle A.
Oblique area formulas:
1
𝐴 = 𝑏𝑐 ∙ sin 𝐴
2
𝐴=
1
2
𝑎𝑐 ∙ sin 𝐵
4. Find the area of the triangle. Round to nearest tenth.
𝐴=
1
2
𝑎𝑏 ∙ sin 𝐶
You can use the Law of Cosines to solve triangles when two sides and the included angle are
known (SAS case), or when all three sides are known (SSS case).
Law of Cosines
𝑎2 = 𝑏 2 + 𝑐 2 − 2𝑏𝑐 ∙ 𝑐𝑜𝑠 𝐴
𝑏 2 = 𝑎2 + 𝑐 2 − 2𝑎𝑐 ∙ 𝑐𝑜𝑠 𝐵
𝑐 2 = 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 − 2𝑎𝑏 ∙ cos 𝐶
III. Finding sides/angles in oblique triangles using law of cosines.
5. Example using SAS case:
Solve the triangle by finding side b, angle A and angle C.
6. Example using SSS case:
Solve the triangle by finding angle A, angle B, and angle C.
