Prove : \(\sin (90  \theta) = \cos \theta\)
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Actually I am confused that how can I : prove that sin in 2nd quadrant is +ve ? That is my basic confusion ...

can u use sin (AB) formula?
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No idea. Actually that was just in start and the formula arises later, so I think that there must be an easier method?

dw:1350046691525:dw now find sin 90theta and cos theta using basic defination

In case of sin 90  theta , will perpendicular be : adjacent (base) and base will be opposite?

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
know the basic defination of sin and cos ? dw:1350046897401:dw apply it here, in terms of a and b,c

OH IT IS soh cah toa and not soa cah toa , sorry :(

sin = opposite / hypotenuse cos = adjacent / hypotenuse
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sin (90theta) = b/c cos (theta) = b/c and hence sin(90theta) = cos(theta) , got it now? lol jk. Well is this right @hartnn

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
here, put theta = theta
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
and use cos(theta) = cos theta
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
how to prove that cos(theta)=theta ?
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
again with the use of right triangle @hartnn ?
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
how will u find theta in triangle ?
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh yes .. silly me . So, a cartesian plane ?
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no, cartesian plane will not work also.

ccw : +ve angle cw : ve angle
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
because lengths will be positive , so ratio will always come out to be positive, hence, maybe cartesian plane won't work

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
searched net now, http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/trigfourquadrants.html is that the correct one ?
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
yes, its correct....we could prove it using coordinates.... (cos t,sin t)= (x,y) so sin t is +ve in 2nd quadrant

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
doubts ended :) thanks a lo.

more we knw more confuse we become
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8
more we practice, more the confusion vanishes....
 one year ago

sara12345Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
more we practice, more ways we look at things n hence more confusions which ofcourse gives kick ;p
