Trigonometry Formulas, Tricks & Questions

Trigonometry is an important part of the Quantitative Aptitude section that gives a tough time to students with its complex formulas and questions. Trigonometry is a major branch of mathematics that deals with the angles and lengths of a right-angled triangle. The application of trigonometry is done in astronomical studies and other science fields. There are a total of 6 trigonometric functions namely Sin, Cos, Tan, Sec, Cosec, and Cot. There are trigonometric ratios that help to derive the current length and angle. All the Trigonometry formulas, tricks, and questions in trigonometry revolve around these 6 functions. Aspirants can check out the details of Trigonometry including the formulas, tricks, and questions.

Cbsesolutions provide you with each and every formula related to trigonometry as well as tricks that will help you score well in your examinations and any other competitive exam like SSC, jee, etc.

Important Trigonometric Ratio Identities

In order to get hold of the basic concepts of trigonometry, you must learn all the important trigonometric ratio and their identities.

Trigonometric Ratios

To study different trigonometric ratio functions,  we will use a right-angled triangle. Suppose ABC is a right-angled triangle with angle A = 90°

Different Values of Specific Angle of Trigonometric Ratio

You must learn the following table to solve the question based on the trigonometrical ratio of angle 0°, 30°, 45°, 60°

Values of Specific Angle of Trigonometric Ratio

Trigonometry Formula: Relation Between Square Of Different Types Of Trigonometric ratios

Important Concept to Solve a Specific Type of Question

If A + B = 90°

Results that are true always :

(i)  sin A. sec B = 1 or  sin A = cos B

(ii) cos A. cosec B = 1 or  sec A = cosec B

(iii) tan A. tan B = 1  or tan A = cot B

(iv) cot A. cot B = 1

(v)  sin²A + sin² B = 1

(vi) cos² A + cos² B = 1

Important Trigonometry Formula for Sum and Difference Of Two Angles 

(1) sin (A+B) =sinA. cosB + cosA sinB

(2) sin(A – B) =sinA. cosB – cosA sinB

(3) cos(A+B) =cosA. cosB – sinA sinB

(4) cos(A-B) = cosA. cosB+sinA sinB

(5) 2 sinA.cosB = sin(A+B)+sin (A-B)

(6) 2 cosA. sinB = sin(A+B)-sin (A-B)

(7) 2 sinA. sinB = cos(A-B)-cos(A+B)

(8) 2 cosA.cosB = cos(A+B)+cos(A-B)

(9) sin²A-sin²B = sin(A+B). sin(A-B)

(10) cos²A-cos²B = cos(A+B).cos (A-B)

Trigonometry Formulas For Tangent

Tan (A+B) , Tan(A-B), Cot(A+B), Cot(A-B) Identities

Important Results for Trigonometry

  • If A + B + C = 180°

Then, tan A + tan B + tan C = tan A. tan B. tan C

  • If A + B + C = 90°

Then,  cot A + cot B + cot C = cot A cot B cot C

  • If (a) sin θ + cosec θ = 2
