5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Ratios formed by the sides of a right triangle. Useful in finding the missing sides of a right triangle given an angle and a side. Trigonometric ratios include sine (sin), cosine (cos), and tangent (tan). Other ratios (not covered in this chapter) are: cosecant, secant, and cotangent
  2. In a triangle with shorter sides a and b and longer side c, if a^2 + b^2 > c^2, then the triangle is acute
  3. Special right triangle: hypotenuse = shorter side 2; longer side = shorter side sqrt(3)
  4. trigonometric ratio: abbreviation tan; the tangent of an acute angle in a right triangle equals the side opposite the angle divided by the adjacent side (tan A = opp/adj)
  5. trigonometric ratio: abbreviation sin; the sine of an acute angle in a right triangle equals the side opposite the angle divided by the hypotenuse (sin A = opp/hyp)

5 True/False questions

  1. SOH CAH TOAMnemonic device to help remember the trig ratios in a right triangle: sin = opp/hyp; cos = adj/hyp; tan = opp/adj

          

  2. Angle of elevationThe angle formed when looking up from the horizontal

          

  3. cosinetrigonometric ratio: abbreviation cos; the cosine of an acute angle in a right triangle equals the side adjacent to the angle divided by the hypotenuse (cos A = adj/hyp)

          

  4. Pythagorean TheoremThree positive integers that satisfy a^2 + b^2 = c^2, that is, they could be the three side lengths of a right triangle. Primitive triples include: 3, 4, 5; 5, 12, 13, and 8, 15, 17. More triples can be formed by multiplying each member of a primitive triple by the same multiplier; for example, since 3, 4, 5 is a triple, so is 6, 8, 10.

          

  5. 45-45-90 right triangleSpecial right triangle: isosceles right triangle where the legs are congruent and the hypotenuse = leg * sqrt(2)
