MCR3U Trigonometric identities worksheet

Prove the following trigonometric identities by showing that the left side is equal to the right side.

1. sin " = cos " tan "

1 tan "
! 2. =
cos" sin "

3. sin 2 " # cos 2 " = 1 # 2cos2 "


!

1
! 4. tan 2 " +1 =
cos2 "

5. 1 " cos2 # = sin # cos# tan #


!

6. cos2 " tan 2 " = sin 2 "


!

1
! 7. sin " tan " + cos " =
cos"

tan 2 "
! 8. #1 = tan 2 "
sin 2 "

9. cos2 " (1+ tan 2 " ) = 1


!

1
! 10. 2 = tan 2 " +1
cos "

11. sin 2 " # cos 2 " = 2sin 2 " #1


!

12. 1+ cos2 " = 2cos 2 " + sin 2 "


!

13. tan 2 " # sin 2 " = tan 2 " sin 2 "


!

14. sin " (1+ tan " ) = tan " (sin " + cos" )
