Let A and B two angles. Then their sum A + B or the difference A - B is called a compound angle. The sum or difference of any two or more than two angles is called a compound angle.

Learn MoreIf A is an angle, then 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, etc. are called multiple angles of A.

Learn MoreIf A is an angle, then \(\frac{A}{2}\), \(\frac{A}{3}\), \(\frac{A}{4}\) etc. are called sub - multiple angles of A.

Key to remember |

2sinA cosB = sin(A + B) + sin(A - B) | 2 sin. cos = sin + sin |

2 cosA sinB = sin(A + B) - sin(A - B) | 2 cos. sin = sin - sin |

2 cosA cosB = cos(A + B) + cos(A - B) | 2 cos. cos = cos + cos |

2 sinnA sinB = cos (A - B) - cos(A + B) |
2 sin. sin = cos - cos |

sinC + sinD = 2sin(\(\frac{C + D}{2}\)) cos (\(\frac{C - D}{2}\)) | sin + sin = 2sin. cos |

sinC - sinD = 2 cos (\(\frac{C + D}{2}\)) sin (\(\frac{C - D}{2}\)) | sin - sin = 2cos. sin |

cosC + cosD = 2 cos (\(\frac{C + D}{2}\)) cos (\(\frac{C - D}{2}\)) | cos + cos = 2cos. cos |

cosC - cosD = -2 sin (\(\frac{C + D}{2}\)) sin (\(\frac{C - D}{2}\)) | cos - cos = 2sin. sin |

**Conditional Trigonometric Identities.**

Identities which are true under some given conditions are termed as conditional identities and

in this section, we will deal some trigonometric identities which are bound to the condition of the sum of the angles of a triangle i.e. A + B + C =π

Learn More**A method for finding angles.**

(i) First of all, we determine the quadrant where the angle falls. For this, we use the all sin, tan, cos rule.

If sinθ is positive, the angleθ falls in the 1^{st} and 2^{nd} quadrants and if sinθ is negative, the angleθ falls in the 3^{rd} and 4^{th} quadrants. If cosθ is positive,θ lies in the 1^{st} and 4^{th} quadrants and if cosθ is negative,θ lies in the 2^{nd} and 3^{rd} quadrants. if tanθ is positive,θ lies in the first and third quadrants and if tanθ is negative,θ lies in second and fourth quadrants.

(ii) To find the angle in the first quadrant, we find the acute angle which satisfies the equation.

For example, if 2cosθ = 1

then cosθ = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

or, cosθ = cos60^{0}

So, θ = 60^{0}

(iii) To find the angle in the second quadrant, we subtract acute angleθ from 180^{0}.

(iv) To find the angle in the third quadrant, we add acute angleθ to 180^{0}

(v) To find the angle in the 4^{th} quadrant, we subtract acute angleθ to 360^{0}

(vi) To find the value ofθ from the equations like sinθ = 0, cosθ = 0, tanθ= 0, sinθ = 1, cosθ = 1, sinθ = -1, cosθ = -1. We should note the following results:

If sinθ = 0, thenθ = 0^{0}, 180^{0} or 360^{0} |
If sinθ = 1, thenθ = 90^{0} |

If tanθ = 0, thenθ = 0^{0,}180^{0} or 360^{0} |
If sinθ = -1, thenθ = 270^{0} |

If cosθ = 0, thenθ = 90^{0} or 270^{0} |
If cosθ = 1, thenθ = 0^{0} or 360^{0} |

If cosθ = -1, then θ = 180^{0}.

This note explains about the angle of depression and angle of elevation.
