Lecture 02: Right-triangle Trigometry
August 26, 2015

Start   Alright. Sine and Cosine.
Sine and cosine and tangent are all about the ratios and right triangles.
You have a triangle and, since, right triangles right triangles can very easily be similar because they all have a right angle.
You just need another angle and then triangles are similar.
Imagine you have a right triangle with a bigger right triangle.
0:31Both have 90 degree angles, that's what makes them right triangles.
And, now you need another angle.
So, let's call that angle 30 degrees.
And, the third angle has to automatically be equal, because the angles always have to add up to 180.
So, once these two are equal and these two are equal, then those two have to be equal.
So, in this case they both have to be 60.
Then the idea of trig is the ratio of any side and you have a side here
1:00is the same as the ratio from here to here.
on any size right triangle as long as they have that 30 degree angle.
So, we just give names to the ratios.
The names of the ratios are sine, and cosine, and tangent There is actually a reason why we call them sine, cosine and tangent.
But, I will not go into why we call them sine, cosine and tangent.
Okay. Um.
So, let's remember how we define those.
I am going to erase ah, I'll leave that there.
1:36So, we have a right triangle.
We call this angle theta because that is a Greek letter. We can call it x.
We can call it anything we want.
Then the sine of that angle is the opposite side over the hypotenuse.
Because the sine is the opposite over the hypotenuse.
The cosine
2:00is the adjacent over the hypotenuse.
Tangent is the opposite over the adjacent.
That is how we have that mneumonic SOH CAH TOA.
You all should have seen at some point in your life.
You are seeing it again.
Okay. By the way, you could go on in biology and never see trigonometry.
I don't know how far you are going to go.
You could go to med school and you are not going to find trigonometry.
Okay, so. This helps us
2:31name the ratio.
There is also some problems lets step back a minutes.
The three triangles Can you guys see over here?
When I write on that board? Alright.
So, the 30, 60, 90 triangle.
In order to choose a 30, 60, 90 triangle so that each side are always the same proportion.
So, the 30, 60, 90 triangle
3:00whatever side is opposite the 30 degrees is always half the hypotenuse.
If this is 10 the hypotenuse is 20.
If this is 100 the hypotenuse is 200. If this is 4 the hypotenuse is 8. It is always half of what the hypotenuse is.
The third side just comes out of the Pythagorean Theorem.
It is the square root of 3.
And that is true, so here, the proportion is the same.
So, let's say this is 10.
And, that would be 20, and that would be
3:3010 times the square root of 3.
Now, that means that the sine is always going to have the same ratio.
So, sine is 30 degrees is always going to come out a half.
The cosine of 30 degrees Is always going to come square root of 3 over 2.
4:02It doesn't matter what the sides are, because the ratio will come out the same.
So, whatever you put in, you simplify and reduce.
It is always going to come out the same number.
And, the tangent will always be 1 over the square root of 3.
4:31Alright. The sine of 60 degrees I was sitting with some professors yesterday and they were complaining about students.
So, I will treat you as adults.
Sine of 60 degrees square root of 3 over 2.
Cosine of 60 degrees is a half.
Like I said, these two are the opposite of each other. Okay? The sine of one is the cosine of the other Cosine of one is the sine of the other.
Then, the tangent of 60 degrees
5:02Well, you go tangent of 60 degrees.
And, you say, its square root of 3 over 1.
Here if you do 10 square root of 3 over 10, notice what happens... The 10s just cancel and you get the square root of 3 again.
Okay? So, that ratio doesn't change.
Now we will go to another type of triangle.
5:30These are called the special angles.
These are the ones you are expected to memorize.
Because, you don't know the sine of 73 degrees. I don't know the sine of 73 degrees. You need a calculator for that.
You don't need a calculator for these.
These are the ones that we put on tests.
Okay? If we had a 73 degree angle on a test your answer would be something like sine of 73.
And, I expect you to know that's you know 8 something.
Okay? But if we say, sine of 60 degrees, you are supposed to know that it
6:00is the square root of 3 over 2.
If you have A right triangle where these 2 sides are the same, the two legs, then the two angles are also the same.
They are both going to be 45 degrees.
And, the ratio of these two sides are only 1 because they are the same and that is the square root of 2.
You can find sine and cosine and tangent of 45 degrees.
6:39The sine of 45 degrees and cosine of 45 degrees they are going to be the same.
Alright. Because if you look at 45 degree angle the opposite side and the adjacent side are the same.
So, the sine and the cosine are going to come out the same.
They are both going to be 1 over the square root of 2.
For no special reason, we simplify this
7:02the square root of 2 over 2.
I don't think that is more simple.
In fact, if we had to square it. This is messier, and this is more simple. But, this fits nicely into a number line.
And, the tangent of 45 degrees, On the tangent of 45 is the opposite over the adjacent.
They are both 1, so, that is just 1.
7:32So, then I came up with a nice handy way for everyone to memorize this.
8:04Okay. Sine and cosine are always over 2.
So, this is 1, 2 3, and that goes 3, 2, 1 Did any of your teachers teach you this in school?
One. That's it?
That small a group?
Okay. Because this used to be the way to learn it.
And, then they came up with this unit circle stuff.
And, that doesn't work as well.
Because then you guys never memorize this.
8:31And, it isn't as hard if you get this stuff ingrained.
Then you don't have to think about it. You know where it comes from and you get this stuff ingrained and it stays. Just like when you learn a language or a sport or music. Okay?
So, the sine okay, so, tangent turns out to be sine over cosine I will show you why in a minute.
Okay, so, that is your chart.
So, memorize this. As I said to you the other day, what you do when you walk into the exam pick out a corner of a back page or wherever you want to put it.
So, that you dont have to think about the sine and cosine and tangent.
Now let's just have a little more fun with this.
9:31Ah. Remember that the sine of that angle theta, A over C, opposite over hypotenuse.
The cosine theta, B over C, and the tangent of theta, we wrote this already.
The tangent of theta A over B.
If you notice, if you take these two and divide them. You take A over C and you divide by B over C, you get A over B
10:03The sine of the angle divided by the cosine of the angle.
And, that is going to be very useful. It is going to show up a lot. Okay.
What happens is I will give you the sine, I will give you the cosine and I will say, find the tangent. Just divide them You know that A squared plus B squared in this triangle, equals C squared, right?
Good. Well let's take everything and divide it by C squared.
10:35What is C squared divided by C squared?
Well, you are in for another.
So, neat, because we write this as A over C squared and B over C squared equals 1.
So, A over C is the sine and B over C is the cosine.
So, we can replace this with sine of theta squared
11:01plus cosine of theta squared equals 1.
That's the second thing to memorize.
Over on this board.
Sine squared of any angle plus cosine squared of the same angle will be 1.
That is the Pythagorean Theorem in the trigonometry world.
Okay? We write the squared here because although it is sine theta squared,
11:32like this, then it is not clear if I am squaring theta or squaring sine.
By putting it here, that tells you I am squaring sine, not the angle. If you do it on your calculator, you do sine of the angle closed parentheses then you square it.
If you square it before you close the parentheses it will square the angle.
Okay? When you use the calculator and you want
12:00to do sine of an angle, close parentheses, then square it.
Also, you using your calculator make sure you are in degree mode.
The calculators have more than one mode.
And often if you are having problems you are in the wrong mode.
So far, so good?
I was telling you guys the other day.
You are ancient Babylonians and you want to knock down a wall you have to figure out how high it is.
12:31So, a person stands 40 feet from the base of a wall.
That wasn't far enough back then, though, right?
It would be a lot farther.
40 feet from the base of the wall and you measure the angle of elevation, this angle, and it is 60 degrees.
How tall is the wall?
So, let's set it up.
Okay, this, we are standing to face the wall we are 40 feet away.
13:01We measure that as 60 degrees.
Right. So, how tall is this?
So, let's use a trig function.
So, which trig function would we use?
Good. So, we have the adjacent side and we want to find the opposite side. Tangent is opposite over adjacent.
You look at this and say, "Well, tangent of 60 degrees
13:31is the opposite over the adjacent.
Cross multiply.
And you get 40 times the tangent of 60 is x.
Now, what is the tangent of 60?
Square root of 3.
So, 40
14:02times the square root of 3 is x. Okay? Yes.
Why do I use tangent? Alright.
If I am looking at the wall, and I have this distance, that is the 40 feet from the bottom of the wall. And I want to know how high the wall is.
So, I have my adjacent side that is the one that is touching my feet.
Student: How about the other side?
I don't know what my hypotenuse is and I don't care what my hypotenuse is. So, which trig function uses opposite and adjacent? Tangent.
Any other questions?
Feel free to ask.
Okay. So let us do that again. (laughter) That is alright. This is the hardest part of trigonometry. How do you know which trig function to use.
First question to ask is: do you want to know the hypotenuse?
Do you want to know the angle distance?
Or a side distance?
If I don't knowthe hypotenuse,
15:00I have to use tangent.
Because there are only 3 things you know.
SOH CAH TOA Sine and cosine both use the hypotenuse. If I don't know the hypotenuse, I have to use tangent. Okay?
So, opposite side is I am looking at the triangle, standing at the corner and it is the one that is directly opposite me.
The adjacent side is the one under my feet.
The tangent is
15:31the one shooting the bow and arrow the tangent would be the diagonal.
Where the arrow goes. If I have, a rope I am holding up to a flag pole or something. That would be the diagonal.
Okay. That is the hypotenuse.
So, if you don't know the hypotenuse, I have to use tangent. Okay?
We will practice this again.
So, one side of a triangle, I know that I am looking at the side opposite me. And, I have the side adjacent to me. That is why
16:00I am using tangent. Okay, so, I say, "Well, what is the tangent?" The tangent is that opposite side divided by this adjacent side. That x divided by the 40.
And, I know that is equal to the square root of 3, because the tangent of 60 is the square root of 3.
From the chart.
Which you are going to, the chart, which you are going to write down on your test so you don't even have to think about it.
Okay. Sure. You want me to do it one more time?
Yes. One more time?
So, once more. When you are given the word problem you have to think about what we give you and what we don't give you.
Okay? So, I will give you another word problem. In a second and you will see the difference.
So, I give you how far I am away from a wall and where I am standing.
See I am not standing at the top of the wall and looking down.
I am below the wall and looking up.
The adjacent side is the distance from below my feet
17:00to the bottom of the wall.
Everyone understand that? Adjacent means next to.
Not quite the angle of the direction.
Okay, so, if you hold your hand out straight and you are looking at something.
And, you elevate your head as the angle of elevation.
You drop your head as the angle of depression.
You are depressing your head. So, that would be the angle of depression. So, the angle of depression is almost the same thing as the angle of elevation.
So, there is 2 ways to measure things.
So, if you are in an airplane and you want to land.
Right. So, you are flying straight and now you are going to dip down, so, now you are depressing the angle.
That is the angle of depression.
18:09Um, so, again.
So, you look at where you are standing and you imagine a triangle and you say, "I am standing here." I will draw a really good representation of me.
My own work.
And I say, "My distance from the bottom of the wall. Well, that is adjacent from where I am. That is the adjacent side. This side is
18:31opposite me. Because, it is opposite me. This is the hypotenuse. I have no idea what the hypotenuse is." Okay?
So, now that I know the adjacent, and I am looking for the opposite, I am going to use tangent.
Then, I set it up. I say, "Well, the tangent of that angle is the side opposite divided by the distance of the adjacent side.
I cross multiply. Because, we love cross multiplying.
By the way, you can cross multiply in one direction without going in the other direction.
19:01Then you don't have to do both.
But, if you wanted to you can imagine there is a 1 down there.
Now, that I cross multiplied, I know that x is 40 times the tangent of 60.
The tangent of 60 is just the square root of 3.
Okay. Let us think about another one.
Okay, a pole
19:30you know that thing that sticks up straight.
Is supported by a rope that runs from the top of the pole to the ground. The rope is 50 feet long, and I'm sorry, "fitty" feet long, (laughter) makes an angle with the ground of 30 degrees.
How tall is the pole?
Pole supported by a rope.
well, from the top.
20:05Assuming the pole is standing straight up.
i could leave that out.
The pole could be tilted.
But, assuming that the pole was standing straight up.
And, rope runs from the top of the pole down to the ground. You are getting the hypotenuse. Okay?
And, that rope is "Fitty" feet long. (laughter) Okay?
And, the angle that it makes with the ground
20:30is 30 degrees.
So, I want to know.
How tall is the pole?
Are we actually getting answers?
Um. Well, you are correct, but let's see.
What trig function do I use?
How do I know I use sine? Because opposite over hypotenuse.
This is great!
Okay. I have the hypotenuse
21:01that is the rope. That is the diagonal length.
I am looking for the opposite length.
It will be sine of 30 degrees is x over 50.
Then, I cross multiply, and I get 50 times sine of 30 equals x.
Sine of 30 is a half.
So, 50 times a half.
21:30And, x is 25.
Can everyone read that down there?
That is not hidden, but it is low.
Good. Alright.
So, that's basic premise of this course.
How do we make this harder?
We don't use 30 degrees.
We use something like 12 degrees.
Then, you need a calculator. The principal doesn't change.
So, in fact, because this is a special triangle we do not really need to use trigonometry.
A lot of you just know about a 30 60 90 triangle.
22:01 But, you should get the principal.
Because, as I say, what would you do if I gave you 12 degrees?
Well, then the answer would be 50 times the sin of 12.
These would be alone.
If I were to tell you it was an x equation.
It would be 50 sine of x.
Got that? Should I repeat all of this?
Another round. Okay.
Once again. I am at the top of the pole.
I have a rope that runs to the bottom of the pole.
At the top of the pole, the rope runs down at an angle.
22:31So, that is going to be the hypotenuse of the triangle.
Then, I tell you that the angle that the rope makes with the ground is 30 degrees.
So, now that I know this distance.
I am at this angle.
I am looking for tall the pole is.
That is x. The height of the pole.
I can use sine.
The sine uses opposite over hypotenuse.
I wrote that somewhere. Ah, opposite over hypotenuse.
So, I say that the sine of 30 degrees
23:00is the height of the pole divided by 50.
I cross multiply so that 50 times the sine of 30 degrees equals x.
Then I just solve. Sine of 30 is a half.
I know that there.
50 times a half is 25.
Alright. Another word problem or we will move on to more exciting stuff.
Who wants another word problem?
So, we are sitting here and we are saying, "Well, I know how to do the sine of 30 and 45 and 60 and 12
23:30You can do anything in your right mind.
Then, you say to yourself, what if I want to find the sine, the cosine, and tangent.
Of something that is not in a right triangle.
How do the angles in a right triangle are limited to being between 0 and 90 degrees.
Why is that true?
Think about a right triangle.
This angle is 90 degrees.
24:00The other two angles have to add up to 90 degrees.
Because the total for triangles is 180.
So... these have to add up to 90.
If 1 is 1 then the other is 89.
If this is .1 than the other is 89.9.
You can't get bigger than 90 degrees.
So this is limited to only being able to find sines, cosines, and tangents of angles between 0 and 90.
So, some very clever people said,
24:31"Well, let's see if we can find them of an angle more than 0." More than 90, sorry. or less than 0.
What they did was they went off the coordinate axes and they said ok, let's pretend the angle I showed you this last time. But, we will do it again.
The angle is say here.
And, I want to find the sine, cosine, and tangent of that angle.
But, that angle is more than 90 degrees.
It is a hundred and something.
25:02We are looking for sine and cosine of this angle we will call theta.
People looked around and said, "Well, I could just use this angle instead.
180 minus theta.
The opposite and adjacent do not make any sense.
Why don't they make any sense?
25:30Well, because I do not have a 90 degree angle to work with.
If you did this instead, let's just define it, as the coordinates of the circle.
Oh, could you do that again.
(laughter) So, why don't we just call sine and cosine the coordinates of that point.
26:02Why can we do that?
I will do a little erasing.
Well, we got the circle.
Let us just look at the first quadrant for a minute.
I got a triangle that is just touching.
If I make the radius of this circle 1,
26:31the coordinates of this point are (x,y).
And, now I have found some angle, theta.
And, sine theta is what? Is the opposite over the hypotenuse.
It is y divided by 1.
I don't need to write the divided by 1. It is just 1.
And, similarly if I want to find the x value, the cosine of theta is x divided by 1.
27:03So, the coordinates of that point are really (cos (theta), sin (theta)).
So, any point on the unit circle the coordinates of the point are cosine of theta, sine of theta.
This is very easy because now you can say okay now I can find sine and cosine of angles
27:30other than between 0 and 90 degrees.
Now, let us go back to our example.
I will draw another circle.
Now, I find the sine and the cosine of this angle.
But remember it is just the coordinates of this point.
So, the coordinates of that point are this distance and this distance.
28:01It is the x distance and the y distance.
If I wanted to find some angle down here.
Again, they are just the cosine and sine at that point.
For that angle.
So, in general, if I wanted to find sine and cosine of angles other than between 0 and 90 degrees I would put them on the unit circle.
28:31So, let us do an example.
Let's find the sine of 120 degrees.
It is better to have examples.
Yeah, that is terrible.
29:07So where is 120 degrees.
Well, I can start wherever I want.
But it is tradition to say, 0 degrees is on the positive x axis.
That makes this 90, that makes 180 and, that makes this.
270 degrees, and then 360 degrees is going all the way around the circle.
29:42So, where would 120 degrees be?
Well, if this is 0 and this is 90 you just keep going until you get to about there.
Okay? Imagine you are 0.
And you rotate to 90.
30:00and you keep rotating until you get to 120.
So, if I want to find the sine of 120 degrees.
I need to the the sine and cosine This angle, well, that is going to be our theta.
How big is theta?
60 degrees. Why is it 60?
Because that is 180 and that is 120.
There is 60 degrees left over.
So, what is the sine of 60 degrees?
30:35Well, it is radical 3 over 2.
You have to be careful now.
Somewhere over here in the second quadrant.
So, this distance sine is still going to be positive.
because it is still pointing up. The y direction is pointing up is positive and negative is down.
If I wanted to find the x value the cosine is going to be negative because I am
31:01pointing this way on the x-axis.
If I said, the cosine of 120 degrees, that would be the same as the cosine of 60 degrees.
so it is negative.
Cosine of 60 degrees is a half.
So, this would be negative one half.
Should I repeat that?
Okay. You think about the coordinates on the x axis and the y axis.
As long as I am pointing up, I have a positive value.
31:30Positive y value.
So, the sine is the opposite of this angle.
Sine is that length and that is a positive distance which is just up the y-axis.
However, when I am going out the x axis and going in the negative x direction.
So, the x value would be negative.
So, the cosine would be negative, not positive.
It would be exactly the same as if it was pointing this way but it is negative instead of positive.
32:10How are we doing back there?
Are you getting it?
Watching a video on your phone?
So, how do I get the 60 degrees?
This is 180 degrees.
And, I want 120.
So, 60 is the left over angle.
32:32Well, I was looking for sine.
Another question.
I am going to do a few more examples.
If I do a few more you guys will get it.
So, what is the answer of sine of 120? Square root of 3 over 2.
33:04And the reason is it is the same thing as the sine of 60 degrees.
Cosine of 120 is negative a half.
As demonstrated, cosine is negative there and sine is positive.
33:36Okay, so let us go over why these things are positive or negative.
Maybe we will just use 210.
Maybe that will work.
How do you find the sine of 210 degrees?
First, I have to find where am I going to put 210 degrees.
Okay, 210 degrees
34:00is where? Well, this is 0.
and this is 90.
This is 180.
So, 210 is somewhere down in the 3rd quadrant.
Okay. If I pick a point in the 3rd quadrant.
What do I know about the sine and the x and the y coordinates?
Well... Any point down here is going to have a negative x-coordinate and a negative y-coordinate. So, negative x and a negative y.
34:32So, since cosine of theta is the x coordinate it is going to be negative. The sine of theta is the y coordinate. Is also going to be negative. So, in the previous problem, I was in the second quadrant.
X coordinates are negative and y coordinates are positive.
So, since the x coordinates are negative, cosines come out negative.
Y coordinates are positive so, sines come out positive.
35:02So, I go here and I say, sine of 210 well, this is 180, and this is 210, so this is 30 degrees.
These all have to come out 30 and 45 and 60 because we don't know any other angles.
So, the sine of 210, is the same as the sine of 30 degrees.
I am down here in the third quadrant.
35:30In the third quadrant, I know sine is negative.
Because y coordinates are negative.
So, what is the sine of 30 degrees?
It is a half.
This is negative a half.
Do I need to go through that again?
Once again, to find the sine of 210 degrees,
36:01I draw a unit circle and I go around until I have gotten to 210 degrees. This is 180 that is 210 so I have gone 30 degrees past the x axis.
We are always going to measure angles around the x axis.
Never from the y axis.
In the third quadrant, sines and cosines both have negative values. So, I will get exactly what I would have
36:30gotten for the sine of 30 degrees.
Except it will be negative because I am pointing down instead of pointing up.
Y coordinate when it is pointing up it is positive.
When it is pointing down it is negative.
The sine of 30 degrees this will be the same as the sine of 30 degrees.
except it will be negative. It is negative a half.
If I want to find the cosine of 210 degrees.
It is the same angle as the sine has it will also be of 30 degrees.
And, it will also be negative
37:01because it is found in the third quadrant.
Cosine of 30 is the square root of 3 over 2.
So, this turns out negative square root of 3 over 2.
First I want to find cosine of 315 degrees.
315 degrees, now where is 315 degrees?
37:37Well, let us see. 270 is straight down. So, 315, I am going to keep going Until I pass 270.
And I get to 315 degrees.
So, now what is the left over angle between this line, this radius and the x axis?
38:0245 degrees.
So, the cosine of 315 will be the same as cosine of 45. Now in the 4th quadrant. Is x positive or negative?
X is positive.
So, you are going this way. Is Y positive or negative?
Y is negative.
So, cosine will be positive and sine will be negative.
Because x will be positive and y will be negative.
38:30That means cosine positive Sine is negative. Okay?
And what is the cosine of 45 degrees?
1 over square root of 2. So this will be rad of 2 over 2.
What if I wanted to find the sine of 315 degrees?
Well, that is going to be the same as the sine of 45 degrees.
39:06Plus, the y coordinate is negative.
So, the sine would be negative.
So, this would be negative sine of 45 degrees.
This is negative radical 2 over 2.
How about if I did the sine of 420 degrees?
420 is everyone's favorite number. (laughter)
39:31This is 360 degrees right?
That is all the way around.
So, I keep going another 60 degrees until I get to there.
Okay. So, why is that 60?
Well, I went all the way around 360 and I kept going until I got to 420 degrees.
40:04I am in the first quadrant.
Is sine going to be positive or negative?
It is going to be positive. Because it is the y value and the y value is positive in the first quadrant.
So is the x value. This will be the same thing as the sine of 60 degrees.
Which is?
Radical 3 over 2.
40:30Let's find the sine of 300 degrees.
So, how do you find the sine of 300 degrees?
Well, we have to figure out where 300 degrees is.
300 degrees is not quite 360, but past 270.
How much farther than 270 do we go?
We go another 30 degrees.
41:00So, this angle is 60 degrees.
Remember you always use the angle with the x axis. You never use the angle with the y axis.
Always the x. Never the y.
So, in the fourth quadrant, here, the x coordinates are positive.
Y coordinates are negative.
Sine is the y coordinate.
So, this would be a negative value.
Negative sine of 60 degrees.
Sine of 60 degrees is radical 3 over 2.
41:40There is a mnemonic for this.
Some of you may have learned.
All students take crack.
Or, All students take calculus.
Or, All Seawolves,
42:02take Calculus.
I learned a lot of these.
Feel free to pick up whichever one you want.
The goal of the mnemonic is that you remember it. That is why lots of them are obscene, because then you remember it.
If they are a little off color, then you have a better chance of remembering it.
What does this stand for?
42:30A is for All trig functions are positive if found in the first quadrant.
So, you get an angle.
You end up in the first quadrant. You get a positive answer.
S stands for sine.
If you are in the second quadrant sine will be positive.
That means the tangent and cosine will not be positive.
In the third quadrant, tangent is positive. That means sine and cosine will be negative.
The tangent will be positive.
43:01The fourth quadrant, cosines are positive. The sines and tangents will be negative.
So it is a very handy way to remember things.
So if I asked you for, tangent of 135 degrees.
Tangent is positive in the third quadrant.
But, not in the fourth quadrant.
Everything is positive in the first.
Sine is positive in the second.
Tan is positive in the third.
43:30Cosine is positive in the fourth.
So, in the fourth cosine is positive, so sine and tan are negative.
So, take tan of 135 degrees.
So, where is 135 degrees.
You don't really need to draw a circle all the time. You can.
135 degrees is somewhere there.
How do I know that?
That's 90.
That is 180.
So, 135
44:02That comes out 45 degrees.
Notice, practice the subtraction, but you can't get like 55 degrees.
You don't know what to do with 55 degrees.
It has got to be 45 degrees.
So, the tangent of 135 degrees would be the same as the tangent of 45 degrees.
Except, we are in the second quadrant.
And, in the second quadrant, we are up there with Seawolves, okay?
Only sine is positive.
44:31Tangent would be negative.
So, this is negative.
What is the tan of 45?
The tan of 45 is 1.
Well, this is negative 1.
Well, these are very important to get down.
Sine, cosine and
45:00tangent of 315 degrees.
Where is the angle at 315 degrees?
315 degrees is down here.
It gets kind of boring drawing that circle all the time.
So I am not going to draw it.
So here the angle is down here.
Because that is 360
45:30and that is 270.
So what is my left over angle?
45 degrees.
Okay, so this will be the same so sine of 315 will be the same as sine of 45, except we are in quadrant, the fourth quadrant.
only cosine is positive.
All of these will be at the 45 degree angle.
But, only cosine will be positive.
46:01These two will be negative.
What is the sine of 45?
radical 2 over 2.
So this is negative radical 2 over 2.
Cosine of 45 is radical 2 over 2.
This is positive.
Tangent would be negative 1.
You got that one?
Alright, it is close enough to 6:50.
