Warm Up

Find the geometric mean of each pair of a number.

Trigonometric Ratios

By the AA Similarity Postulate, a right triangle with a given acute angle is similar to every other right triangle with that same acute angle measure. So ∆ABC~∆DEF~∆XYZ, and BC/AC = EF/DF = YZ/XZ. These are trigonometric radios. A trigonometric ratio is a ratio of two sides of a right triangle.

3) Use your calculator to find each trigonometric ratio.

Round to the nearest hundredth.

a. tan 11˚ b. sin 62˚ c. cos 30˚

CONFIDENTIAL

The hypotenuse is always the longest side of a right triangle. So the denominator of a sine or cosine ratio is always greater than the numerator. Therefore the sine and cosine of an acute angle are always positive numbers less than 1. Since the tangent of an acute angle is the ratio of the lengths of the legs, it can have any value greater than 0.

Trigonometric Ratios to Find Lengths

Find each length. Round to the nearest hundredth.

A) AB

AB is adjacent to the given angle, /A. You are given BC, which is opposite /A. Since the adjacent and opposite legs are involved, use a tangent ratio.
