Example:Prove Trigonometric Identity

 Post to:   Explanation:

Trigonometry

Trigonometry (from Greek trigōnon "triangle" + metron "measure") is a branch of mathematics that studies triangles and the relationships between their sides and the angles between these sides. Trigonometry defines the trigonometric functions, which describe those relationships and have applicability to cyclical phenomena, such as waves.

### Symmetry

When the trigonometric functions are reflected from certain angles, the result is often one of the other trigonometric functions. This leads to the following identities:

 Reflected in θ = 0 Reflected in θ = π / 4 (co-function identities) Reflected in θ = π / 2   Double-angle formula    (Our solved example in mathguru.com uses this concept)
