  • The trigonometric ratios are the ratios between the two sides of a right-angles triangle with respect to an angle and hence they are real numbers.
  • The angle θ taken into consideration may be acute, obtuse or right angle.
  • Various trigonometry formulas related to the basic trigonometric ratios which must be remembered include:
    1) sin2 θ + cos2 θ = 1
    2) sec2 θ -tan2 θ = 1
    3) cosec2 θ - cot2 θ = 1
    4) sin θ cosec θ = tan θ cot θ = sec θ cos θ = 1
    5) sin2 θ + cos2 θ = 1, so each of them is numerically less than 1.
    6) |sin θ| ≤ 1 and |cos θ| ≤ 1
    7) -1 <cosec θ<1 and -1 <sec θ<1
    8) tan θ and cot θ may take any value.
  • The trigonometry ratios can be either positive or negative depending on the quadrant in which they lie. The figure given below illustrates the various trigonometric ratios and their signs in various quadrants:                            Notes | EduRev
  • Range of f: X →Y is the set of all images f(x) which belongs to Y, i.e.
    Range f = {f(x) ∈ Y: x ∈ X} ⊆ Y.
    The domain and range of various trigonometry ratios are given below:

  • The values of various trigonometric ratios vary in different quadrants. The variation is listed below quadrant wise:
    First Quadrant
    1. sine- increases from 0 to 1
    2. cosine- decreases from 1 to 0
    3. tangent- increases from 0 to ∞
    4. cotangent- decreases from ∞ to 0
    5. secant- increases from 1 to ∞
    6. cosecant- decreases from ∞ to 1
    Second Quadrant
    1. sine- decreases from 1 to 0
    2. cosine- decreases from 0 to -1
    3. tangent- increases from - to 0
    4. cotangent- decreases from 0 to -
    5. secant- increases from - to -1
    6. cosecant- increases from 1 to ∞
    Third Quadrant
    1. sine- decreases from 0 to -1
    2. cosine- increases from -1 to 0
    3. tangent- increases from 0 to ∞
    4. cotangent- decreases from ∞ to 0
    5. secant- decreases from -1 to -
    6. cosecant- increases from - to -1
    Fourth Quadrant
    1. sine- increases from -1 to 0
    2. cosine- increases from 0 to 1
    3. tangent- increases from - to 0
    4. cotangent- decreases from 0 to -
    5. secant- decreases from ∞ to 1
    6. cosecant- decreases from -1 to ∞
    • Sin and cos both have 2π as their period.
    • tan function has π as the period.
    • The reciprocal functions have the same period as that of the original functions.
    • If the period of f(x) is T then that of kf(ax+b) is T/mod (a), hence period is affected by coefficient of x only.
    • If f(x) has its period T and g(x) has its period M, then (af(x) + bg(x)) has its period < L.C.M. (T, M). Moreover if f(x) and g(x) are basic trigonometric functions then period of [af (x) + bg(x)] = L.C.M. (T, M).
    • If a constant is added, subtracted, multiplied or divided in a periodic function, its period is unaffected.
