## Trigonometry

Trigonometry refers to the branch of mathematics dealing with the relationships between angles and the lengths of parts of triangles. It is based on the ratios arising from right-angled triangles and offers methods for solving problems involving right angled triangles. In addition, it forms a fundamental tool in many areas of mathematical investigation, including geometry, calculus, physics, engineering, and computer graphics. Furthermore, trigonometry plays a crucial role in understanding the behavior of waves and oscillations, which are essential aspects of various phenomena such as sound, light, and electromagnetic fields.

### Trigonometric Identities

Trigonometric identities are equations that relate different trigonometric functions for the same angle. These relations are derived from the properties of similar triangles and their geometric interpretations. Some important examples of these identities include the Pythagorean Identity, Reciprocal Identities, and Co-function Identities:

• Pythagorean Identity: This identity states that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 for any right triangle.
• Reciprocal Identities: These identities relate the sine, cosine, and tangent functions to each other by defining them as ratios of adjacent sides and hypotenuse.
• Co-function Identities: These identities state that sin(x) = cos(π - x), cos(x) = sin(π - x), and tan(x) = cot(π - x).

Understanding these identities can help solve problems more efficiently and accurately, as they provide relationships between the different trigonometric functions.
