Pythagoras' theorem
a2 + b2 = h2
What is the mnemonic word to decide which formula triangle to use trigonometry?
SOKATOA! 'soh cah toa'
What are the formula triangles known as 'soh cah toa'?
Sin Opposite Hypotenuse, Cos Adjacent Hypotenuse, Tan Opposite Adjacent
The sine rule
a / sinA = b / sinB = c / sinC
The cosine rule
a2 = b2 + c2 - 2bc COS A or
COS A = b2+c2-a2 / 2bc
Probability-the AND rule
P of A and B happening is (P of A) times (P of B)
Probability-the OR rule
P of A or B happening is (P of A) add (P of B)
