PYTHAGORAS & TRIGONOMETRY

Can only occur in a right angled triangle

hypotenuse

Pythagoras Theorem states:

right angle

e.g.

x

9.4 cm

7.65 m

y

11.3 m

8.6 cm

x2 = 7.652 + 11.32

y2 + 8.62 = 9.42

9.42 = y2 + 8.62

square root undoes squaring

smaller sides should always be smaller than the hypotenuse

x2 = 186.2125

- 8.62

y2 = 9.42 – 8.62

- 8.62

x = √186.2125

y2 = 14.4

x = 13.65 m (2 d.p.)

y = √14.4

y = 3.79 cm (2 d.p.)

against the wall. The base of

the ladder is 2 m from the

wall.

Draw a diagram to show this

information and calculate

- Vectors describe a movement (translation).

To describe vectors as a column vector:

- top number describes sideways movement

(negative = left and positive = right)

- bottom number describe up/down movement

(negative = down and positive = up)

e.g. Draw the vector q =

b

vectors can start anywhere

e.g. Draw the vector b =

- Bearings are used to indicate directions

- Are measured clockwise from North

- Must be expressed using 3 digits

(i.e. 000° to 360°)

- Compass directions such as NW give directions but are not bearings

000°

e.g. The compass points and their bearings:

315°

GRID REFERENCE from the west

- Grid referencing is a six figure system of map co-ordinates used to give locations

- The first three figures refer to the horizontal scale.

- The last three figures refer to the vertical scale.

e.g. A location has a grid reference of 295868. How is it found?

On the horizontal scale we look for the 29 and then move 5 tenths further right

On the vertical scale we look for the 86 and then move 8 tenths further up

RAPID NUMBERING

- RAPID stands for Rural Address Property IDentification

- It accurately gives the location of rural properties

- It is based on the distance a property is from the beginning of the road

- The distance is measured in metres with the final measurement being divided by 10. If the property is on the right side, the number is rounded to the nearest even whole number and if it is on the left side, to the nearest odd number.

e.g. What is the RAPID number for a property located 527 metres up the left side of a road?

527 ÷ 10 = 52.7

Left side means we round to nearest odd number

= 53

3D FIGURES from the west

NON-RIGHT ANGLED TRIANGLES from the west

1. Naming Non-right Angled Triangles

- Capital letters are used to represent angles

- Lower case letters are used to represent sides

e.g. Label the following triangle

2. Sine Rule from the west

a = b = c .

b) Calculating Angles from the west

For the statement: 1 = 3 is the reciprocal true?

2 6

Yes as 2 = 6

1 3

Therefore to calculate angles, the Sine Rule is reciprocated so the unknown angle is on top and therefore easier to calculate.

You must calculate Sin51 before dividing by 6 (cannot use fractions)

SinA = SinB = SinC

a = b = c .

3. Cosine Rule from the west

-Used to calculate the third side when two sides and the angle between them (included angle) are known.
