Trigonometric Functions
• Let (x, y) be a point other the origin on the terminal side of an angle
 in standard position. The distance from the point to the origin is

Example: Finding Function
Values
• Find the six
trigonometric function
values of the angle 
in standard position, if
the terminal side of 
is defined by
x + 2y = 0, x  0.
• We can use any point
on the terminal side of
 to find the
trigonometric function
values.

Example: Identify Quadrant
• Identify the quadrant (or quadrants) of any
angle  that satisfies tan  > 0, cot  > 0.
• tan  > 0 in quadrants I and III
• cot  > 0 in quadrants I and III
• so, the answer is quadrants I and III
Ranges of Trigonometric
Functions
• For any angle  for which the indicated
functions exist:
• 1. 1  sin   1 and 1  cos   1;
• 2. tan  and cot  can equal any real
number;
• 3. sec   1 or sec   1 and
csc   1 or csc   1.
(Notice that sec  and csc  are never
between 1 and 1.)
Identities
• Pythagorean
sin 2   cos 2   1,
tan 2   1  sec 2  ,
1  cot 2   csc 2 
• Quotient
sin 
 tan 
cos 
cos 
 cot 
sin 
Example: Other Function Values
• Find sin and cos if tan  = 4/3 and  is in
quadrant III.
• Since is in quadrant III, sin and cos will both
be negative.
• sin and cos must be in the interval [1, 1].
