# Trigonometry Formulas

In trigonometry, various formulas help solve problems involving trigonometric ratios (sin, cos, tan, sec, cosec, and cot), Pythagorean identities, and more. These formulas are essential for students in classes 10, 11, and 12 to score well in exams. Here is a simplified guide to the key trigonometric formulas.

## Basic Trigonometric Function Formulas

In a right-angled triangle:

• Hypotenuse: The longest side
• Opposite side (Perpendicular): The side opposite to the angle
• Adjacent side (Base): The side next to the angle

The six trigonometric functions are:

## Reciprocal Identities

These identities express trigonometric functions in terms of their reciprocals:

## Trigonometry Table

These identities shift angles by Ï€/2, Ï€, 2Ï€, etc.:

## Cofunction Identities (in Degrees)

These identities relate trigonometric functions of complementary angles:

• \\

## Trigonometry Formulas Major Systems

Trigonometric formulas are divided into two main categories:

1. Trigonometric Identities: These are true for all values of the variables.
2. Trigonometric Ratios: These relate the angles to the sides of a right-angled triangle.

These formulas are crucial for solving problems in trigonometry and understanding various applications in mathematics.
