2. Trigonometric Identities • Trigonometric Identity: a trigonometric equation that is true for all values of the variable for which both sides of the equation are defined. • There are 5 fundamental Trigonometric Identities. (See page 628 in your book.)

21. Verifying Trigonometric Identities • When verifying an identity, begin with the expression on one side. • Use algebra and trigonometric properties to manipulate the expression until it is identical to the other side.

Simplify numerator. Pythagorean identity Simplify.

24. Shadow Length A vertical gnomon (the part of a sundial that projects a shadow) has heighth. The length sof the shadow cast by the gnomon when the angle of the sun above the horizon is q can be modeled by the equation below. Show that the equation is equivalent to s = hcotq . h sin (90° – q ) = sinq s
