Introduction to Trigonometry – Class X – Part 7 | Exercise 8.4 Q1-3 Solved

Watch the seventh video session on “Introduction To Trigonometry” for Class Xth – concepts and solved questions


Introduction To Trigonometry – Class X – Part 7

1. Trigonometric identities that are in syllabus (class 10, NCERT):

sin²θ + cos²θ = 1

1 + cot²θ = cosec²θ

1 + tan²θ = sec²θ

2. How to remember trigonometric identities: As explained in the video, just remember the first one i.e sin²θ + cos²θ = 1

a) The second one (1 + cot²θ = cosec²θ) can be derived from the first by dividing both sides by sin²θ.

b) The second one (1 + tan²θ = sec²θ) can be derived from the first by dividing both sides by cos²θ.

3. Usually the concepts of “trigonometric angles for complementary angles” and “trigonometric identities” are tested together in exam questions.
