Trig Ratios with Complementary Angles and Similar Triangles

Standard:MM2G2ab

Section 1.4

Essential Question: What is the relationship

between the trig ratios of complementary angles

and similar triangles?

Review: With your partner answer each question

reviewing the information we have learned in

Sections 1.1-1.3:

right as the hypotenuse, adjacent

side to ,or sideoppositeangle .

(2). Using the terms “opposite,” “adjacent,” and

“hypotenuse,” write each trig ratio for the

triangle. (Abbreviate please!)

(a). cos = ______(b). tan = ______

(c). sin = ______
