Page 296 - 2 A. 3. Find a general expression for all the angles which have the same tangent as a given angle. Solve the equation— * 4. If A + B be less than a right angle, prove, by means of geometrical figures, the formulae— sin (A + B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B, sin A + sin B=2 sin
Page 209 - that the angle subtended at the centre of a circle by an arc equal in length to its radius is an invariable angle. One angle of a triangle is 45, and the circular measure of another is
Page 53 - Since sin 18 is +, we take the upper sign, .'. sin 18 (ii.) Geometrically. = cos 72. Let ABC be a triangle having each of the angles at the base double of the angle at the vertex.
Page 186 - XIII. 1. The angle subtended at the centre of a circle by an arc which is equal in length to the radius is invariable. Express in degrees and circular measure the vertical angle of an isosceles triangle -which is half of each of the angles at the base. * 2. Investigate an expression which shall include all angles that have a given cosine. 3. Prove the following
Page 206 - XXXII. 1. Assuming that a circle may be treated as a regular polygon with an infinite number of sides, show that the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is constant. What is the circular measure of the least angle whose sine is — , and what is the measure in degrees, etc., of 2 the angle whose circular measure is
Page 228 - 26c cos A, and apply it to prove that if the straight line which bisects the vertical angle of a triangle also bisects the base, then the triangle must be isosceles. 9. Find the area of a triangle in terms of the sides. 10. Find the radius of the circle which touches one side of a triangle
Page 297 - when expressed in terms of sin A, has four values. 7. Prove that in a triangle the sides are proportional to the sines of the opposite angles. If, in a triangle ABC,
