**Introduction to Trigonometry**Honors Geometry December 6, 2019**As you know, all the triangles below are similar. Why?**3 5 4 6 10 9 15 8 12**As you know, all the triangles below are similar. Why?**3 5 4 6 10 9 15 8 12 They are similar because of the SSS ~ postulate.**This means that corresponding sides of these triangles are**proportional.Let’s look at the smallest angle in each of these triangles and check this property! But what angle will be the smallest?**The angle opposite the shortest side will always be the**smallest angle in a triangle. Using this knowledge, let’s call the smallest angle in each triangle (the Greek letter theta), and, with reference to , check out the ratio of the length of the side opposite of to the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle. (We call this ratio sin .)**Sin θ =**3 5 4 6 10 9 15 8 12 θ θ θ**As you can see, the sine of is the same each time, since**the angle is the same each time.**There are two other relationships that are important in**trigonometry as well. In terms of any acute angle in a right triangle, they are:**You need to know these!**sine or sin = cosine or cos = tangent or tan =**Find the sine, cosine, and tangent of A in the triangle**below.

So… What is sin 45º? What is cos 27º? What is tan 62º? 0.7071 .8910 1.881**Can the calculator help us solve this problem?**In triangle PQR, mP = 90º, and mQ = 35º.
