Solving Right Triangles
pp. 594-598
Objectives:
1. To find the trigonometric ratios for
angles using a calculator or tables.
2. To find missing sides or angles of
right triangles.
Solving a right triangle
means finding all the angle
measures and all the side
lengths of the triangle from
the information given.
Find the following using a
should be accurate to four
decimal places.
1. cos 72° = 0.3090
2. tan 9° = 0.1584
3. sin 59° = 0.8572
4. tan 61° = 1.8040
Find mA to the nearest
degree given the following trig
ratios.
5. tan A = 1.3250 mA = 53°
6. cos A = 0.9455 mA = 19°
7. sin A = 0.9130 mA = 66°
There are two types of right
triangles to solve.
1. The right triangle given a side and
an acute angle.
2. The right triangle given two sides.
Steps to solve a right triangle
given a side and an acute
angle.
1. Find the other acute angle by
subtracting the one given from 90°.
2. Set up a trig equation involving the
acute angle and side given, and
one of the unknown remaining
sides.
Steps to solve a right triangle
given a side and an acute
angle.
3. Use the Pythagorean theorem and
the two known sides to find the
third.
