Right Triangle Definitions of Trigonometric Functions
In general, the trigonometric functions
of  depend only on the size of angle 
and not on the size of the triangle.

and not on the size of the triangle.

Function Values for Some Special Angles

A right triangle with a 45°, or

isosceles – that is, it has two sides of equal length.

Function Values for Some Special Angles (continued)

A right triangle that has a 30°, or


has a 60°, or
radian angle. In a 30-60-90 triangle, the
3
measure of the side opposite the 30° angle is one-half the
measure of the hypotenuse.

Trigonometric Functions and Complements
Two positive angles are complements if their sum is 90°

or . Any pair of trigonometric functions f and g for
2
which f ( )  g (90   ) and g ( )  f (90   ) are
called cofunctions.

Using a Calculator to Evaluate Trigonometric Functions
To evaluate trigonometric functions, we will use the
keys on a calculator that are marked SIN, COS, and
TAN. Be sure to set the mode to degrees or radians,
depending on the function that you are evaluating. You
may consult the manual for your calculator for specific
directions for evaluating trigonometric functions.
20
Example: Evaluating Trigonometric Functions with a
Calculator
Use a calculator to find the value to four decimal places:
a. sin 72.8° (hint: Be sure to set the calculator to
degree mode)
sin 72.8  0.9553
b. csc 1.5 (hint: Be sure to set the calculator to radian
mode)
csc1.5  1.0025

Applications: Angle of Elevation and Angle of Depression
An angle formed by a horizontal line and the line of sight
to an object that is above the horizontal line is called the
angle of elevation. The angle formed by the horizontal
line and the line of sight to an object that is below the
horizontal line is called the angle of depression.
22
Example: Problem Solving Using an Angle of Elevation
The irregular blue shape in the figure represents a lake.
The distance across the lake, a, is unknown. To find this
distance, a surveyor took the measurements shown in the
figure. What is the distance across the lake?
a
tan 24 
a  750 tan 24
750
a  333.9
The distance across the lake
is approximately 333.9 yards.
