Trigonometry
Angle Relationships and
Similar Triangles
Basic Terms continued

Angle-formed by rotating
a ray around its endpoint.

The ray in its initial
position is called the
initial side of the angle.

The ray in its location
after the rotation is the
terminal side of the
angle.
Slide 1-3
Basic Terms continued

Positive angle: The
rotation of the terminal
side of an angle
counterclockwise.

Negative angle: The
rotation of the terminal
side is clockwise.
Slide 1-4
Standard Position

An angle is in standard position if its vertex is
at the origin and its initial side is along the
positive x-axis.

Angles in standard position having their terminal
sides along the x-axis or y-axis, such as angles
with measures 90, 180, 270, and so on, are
Slide 1-5
Coterminal Angles

A complete rotation of a ray results in an angle
measuring 360. By continuing the rotation,
angles of measure larger than 360 can be
produced. Such angles are called coterminal
angles.

Conditions for Similar Triangles

Corresponding angles must have the same
measure.

Corresponding sides must be proportional.
(That is, their ratios must be equal.)

Example: Finding Angle Measures

Triangles ABC and DEF
are similar. Find the
measures of angles D
and E.

Example: Complementary Angles


Find the measure of each angle.
Since the two angles form a right
angle, they are complementary
angles. Thus,
k  20  k  16  90
k +20
k  16
2k  4  90
2 k  86
k  43
The two angles have measures of
43 + 20 = 63 and 43  16 = 27
