Trigonometry is the study of relationships between the sides and angles of a right angled triangle.

2. Trigonometric Ratios
Trigonometric ratios of an acute angle in a right triangle express the relationship between the angle and the length of its sides.
Let ABC be a triangle right angled at B. Then the trigonometric ratios of the angle A in right DABC are defined as follows:

4. Trigonometric Ratios of Complementary Angles:
We have the following relationship for complementary angles :

5. Trigonometric Identities :
An equation involving trigonometric ratios of an angle is called a trigonometric identity, if it is true for all values of the angle(s) involved
