# Basic Concepts Of Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics. It is a central of mathematics. Trigonometry is all about the relation between the sides and angles of the triangles. The father of the trigonometry is “Hipparchus”, he introduced first trigonometry table. Trigonometry is the subject which is easy to understand if approach in a right manner. Go through the article to understand the basic concepts.

Right Angle Triangle:

Right angle triangle is a triangle in which one of its interior angle is 90 degree. The opposite side of the right angle triangle is hypothesis and the other two sides are adjacent and opposite.  Basic sin, cos and tan functions are as follows,

a) Sin θ = Opposite/Hypothesis

Pythagoras Theorem:

Pythagoras theorem is used to find the sides of the right angle. Pythagoras theorem is,

Triangle Identities:

Triangle identities are the function. There are some identities which are true for right angle triangles and some are true for all triangles. Understand more about trigonometry identities.

Sine and cosine rule:

Sine and cosine rule are very important in trigonometry. This is useful to solve triangle which is not a right angle.

Sine rule:

a/sin A = b/sin B = c/sin C

Cosine rule:

a^2 = b^2+c^2-2ab cos A

b^2 = a^2+c^2-2ab cos B

c^2 = a^2+b^2-2ab cos C

Here a, b and c are the side of the triangle.
And A, B and C are the angle of the triangle.

Important points:

• Understand the Trigonometry table.

• To understand trigonometry you can have an online math tutor chat.

• To know more about trigonometry basic take online trig help.

### OLC Innovate 2019 at Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center

April 3, 2019 at 8am to April 5, 2019 at 5pm
At OLC Innovate, we will conduct a series of engaging hands-on sessions aimed at fostering organic interactions and collaborative cross-disciplinary problem-solving. Together we will build new foundations for stronger, better higher education environments. And because innovation scales best when ideas are shared, our work sessions will explore digital technologies and adapted teaching behaviors aimed at informing policy, inspiring leadership, and evolving practice at all levels impacting…See More
