PYTHAGORAS

Pythagoras Theorem states:

Can only occur in a right angled triangle

h2 = a2 + b2

hypotenuse

h

- is opposite the right angle and is ALWAYS the longest side.

a

right angle

b

Calculating the Hypotenuse:

e.g.

7.65 mm

e.g.

x

3 m

11.3 mm

x

6 m

x2 = 7.652 + 11.32

square root undoes squaring

x2 = 32 + 62

x2 = 186.2125

x2 = 45

x = √186.2125

x = √45

x = 13.65 mm (2 d.p.)

x = 6.71 m (2 d.p.)

slide3

Calculating the smaller sides:

e.g.

y2 + 42 = 92

92 = y2 + 42

9 cm

- 42

y2 = 92 – 42

- 42

y

y2 = 65

y = √65

4 cm

y = 8.06 cm (2 d.p.)

smaller sides should always be smaller than the hypotenuse

e.g.

8.6 mm

y2 + 8.62 = 9.42

9.42 = y2 + 8.62

- 8.62

y2 = 9.42 – 8.62

- 8.62

y

y2 = 14.4

9.4 mm

y = √14.4

y = 3.79 mm (2 d.p.)

PYTHAGOREAN TRIPLES

- Special sets of whole numbers that fit into the Pythagoras equation

e.g. 3, 4 and 5

x 2

- Each of these sets can be multiplied by numbers to find further triples.

6, 8 and 10

5, 12 and 13

x 3

15, 36 and 39

7, 24 and 25

x 5

35, 120 and 125

PYTHAGOREAN APPLICATIONS

e.g. A ladder 5 m long is placed

against the wall. The base of

the ladder is 2 m from the

wall.

Draw a diagram to show this

information and calculate

how high up the wall the

ladder reaches.

Wall (x)

Ladder (5 m)

x2 + 22 = 52

52 = x2 + 22

x2 = 52 - 22

x2 = 21

x = √21

x = 4.58 m (2 d.p.)

Base (2 m)

TRIGONOMETRY (SIN, COS & TAN)

- Label the triangle as follows, according to the angle being used.

to remember the trig ratios use

Inverses

- are used when calculating angles.

- are found above the sin, cos and tan buttons so the ‘shift’ or 2nd function is needed

e.g. Find angle A if sin A = 0.1073

sin-1 undoes sin

sin-1

A = sin-1(0.1073)

sin-1

A = 6.2° (1 d.p.)

tan-1 undoes tan

e.g. Find angle B if tan B = ¾

tan-1

B = tan-1(¾)

tan-1

If using the fraction button, you may need to use brackets!

B = 36.9° (1 d.p.)

slide7

2. Calculating Angles

-Same method as when calculating sides, except we use inverse trig ratios.

e.g.

B

4.07 m

23.4 mm

H

sin-1 undoes sin

2.15 m

16.1 mm

H

A

O

A

cosB = 2.15 ÷ 4.07

sinA = 16.1 ÷ 23.4

B = cos-1(2.15 ÷ 4.07)

A = sin-1(16.1 ÷ 23.4)

C

H

B = 58.1° (1 d.p.)

A = 43.5° (1 d.p.)

Don’t forget brackets, and fractions can also be used

TRIGONOMETRY APPLICATIONS

e.g. A ladder 4.7 m long is

leaning against a wall. The

angle between the wall and

ladder is 27°.

Draw a diagram and find the

height the ladder extends up

the wall.

e.g. A vertical mast is held by a

48 m long wire. The wire is

attached to a point 32 m up

the mast.

Draw a diagram and find the

angle the wire makes with

the mast.

cosA = 32 ÷ 48

A = 48.2° (1 d.p.)

SCALE DIAGRAMS

- are accurate plans of objects that can be smaller or larger in real life.

- the scale gives information on how sizes on the plan and object relate.

e.g. If a map has a scale of 1 cm = 200 km, how much would 4 cm on the map equate to in real life?

4 × 200 = 800 km

e.g. Draw a right angled triangle with shorter sides of 3 cm and 6 cm and then accurately measure the hypotenuse.

Is your hypotenuse approx 6.7 cm long?

e.g. Wheelchair ramps must be no steeper than 10°. If a ramp starts 3 m away from a door that is 0.25 m above the ground, will it be safe?

Use a scale of 2 cm = 1 m. You will need a ruler and a protractor.

door

ramp

0.5 cm

6 cm

Now measure the angle between the ramp and ground.

Is it safe?

Why?

VECTORS

- 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

q

e.g. Draw the vector b =

e.g. Write vector CD as a column

vector

e.g. Write vector AB as a column

slide11

BEARINGS

- 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°

045°

e.g. Draw a bearing of 051°:

NW

270°

MAGNITUDE AND BEARINGS OF VECTORS

- The magnitude of a vector is its length and is calculated using Pythagoras

- The direction of a vector (bearing) is calculated using Trigonometry

e.g. Calculate the magnitude and bearing of the vector :

Magnitude:

x2 = 42 + 62

x = √42 + 62

x = √52

x = 7.2 units (1 d.p.)

GRID REFERENCE

- 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

NON-RIGHT ANGLED TRIANGLES

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

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

3. Cosine Rule

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