Title: Sec 6.2 Trigonometry of Right Triangles

1
Sec 6.2 Trigonometry of Right Triangles
• Objectives
• To define and use the six trigonometric functions
as ratios of sides of right triangles.
• To review special right triangles.
• To solve right triangles using trigonometric
ratios.

2
Trigonometric Ratios
3
Ex 1. Find the six trig ratios of the angle ?.
4
Ex 2. Sketch a right triangle with acute angle ?
and find the other five trig ratios of ?.
• a) b)

5
Class Work
• Find the six trig ratios of the angle ?.
• a) Find sin ? and cos ?
• b) Find tan ? and cot ?
• c) Find sec ? and csc ?

Ex 3. Evaluate the following without a calculator.
• a) b)

9
Ex 4. Find the exact value of x.
• a) b)

10
Class Work
• Evaluate the expression without using a
calculator.
• 4. sin 30? csc 30?
• 5.

11
• Find the exact value of x.
• 6. 7.

12
Solving a Right Triangle
• A triangle has six partsthree angles and three
sides.
• To solve a triangle means to determine all of
its parts from the information known about the
triangle.
• In other words, we determine the lengths of the
three sides and the measures of the three angles.

13
Ex 5. Solve the triangle.
• a) b)

14
Class Work
• Solve the triangle.
• 8. 9.

15
• 10. From the top of a 200 ft lighthouse, the
angle of depression to a ship in the ocean is
23?. How far is the ship from the base of the
lighthouse?
