Verify trigonometric identities. 2 Verifying Trigonometric Identities 3 Verifying Trigonometric Identities In this section, you will study techniques for verifying

trigonometric identities. In the next section, you will study techniques for solving trigonometric equations. The key to both verifying identities and solving equations is your ability to use the fundamental identities and the rules of algebra to rewrite trigonometric expressions. Remember that a conditional equation is an equation that is true for only some of the values in its domain. 4

Verifying Trigonometric Identities For example, the conditional equation sin x = 0 Conditional equation is true only for x = n where n is an integer. When you find these values, you are solving the equation.

5 Verifying Trigonometric Identities On the other hand, an equation that is true for all real values in the domain of the variable is an identity. For example, the familiar equation sin2 x = 1 cos2 x Identity

is true for all real numbers x. So, it is an identity. 6 Verifying Trigonometric Identities 7 Example 1 Verifying a Trigonometric Identity

Verify the identity. Solution: Because the left side is more complicated, start with it. Pythagorean identity 8 Example 1 Solution

contd Simplify. = tan2 (coscos2 ) Reciprocal identity Quotient identity

= sin2 Simplify. 9
