## Description

Trigonometry focuses on the principles, operations, formulas, and functions involved in trigonometry.

The publication first takes a look at the six trigonometric functions, right triangle trigonometry, and radian measure. Discussions focus on radiance and degrees, unit circle and even and odd functions, length of arc and area of a sector, trigonometric functions of an acute angle, solving right triangles, rectangular coordinate system, and angles, degrees, and special triangles. The manuscript then examines graphing and inverse functions, identities and formulas, and equations. Topics include solving trigonometric equations, parametric equations and further graphing, sum and difference formulas, half-angle formulas, additional identities, phase shift, amplitude and period, graphing combinations of functions, and inverse trigonometric functions. The text ponders on complex numbers and polar coordinates, triangles, and equations, including the law of sines and cosines, products and quotients in trigonometric form, roots of a complex number, and polar coordinates.

The book is a dependable reference for students and readers interested in trigonometry.
