LESSON 18.1: Geometry Review 1.1: ANGLES Angle Measure Angles are measured using two different systems: degree or radian. We will be using degrees, minutes, and seconds to measure angles. 1 degree = 60 minutes

1 degree 1 minute = 60

1 minute = 60 seconds

1 minute 1 second = 60

Symbolically:

1° = 60' 1” = 60”

1 degree = 60 × 60 seconds = 3600 seconds

1 second =

1 3600

1 1" = 3600

1° = 3600 "

Special Angles Acute Angle: An angle is acute if it measures between 0° and 90°

Obtuse Angle: An angle is obtuse if it measures between 90° and 180°.

Right Angle: A right angle measures exactly 90°.

.

In a diagram, the square marking at an angle indicates a right angle. Straight Angle: an angle which measures exactly 180°. ∠ABC = 180°

Complementary Angles: Two angles are complementary if they sum to 90°. ∠ x + ∠ y = 90°

Supplementary Angles: Two angles are supplementary if they sum to 180°. ∠ α + ∠ β = 180°

Example 2:

a)

If ∠A = 23° and ∠B = 67° then ∠A and ∠B are complementary since ∠A + ∠B = 90°

b)

If ∠X = 15°, ∠Y = 65° and ∠Z = 10°, even though ∠X + ∠Y + ∠Z = 90° they are NOT complementary angles. A complementary angle refers only to pairs of angles.

c)

What is the complement of the supplement of the angle 145°? Supplement of 145° = (180 – 145)°

Solution:

= 35° Complement of 35° = (90 – 35)° = 55° The complement of the supplement of the angle 145° is 55° d)

Twice the supplement of a certain angle is 5 times its complement. Find the angle. Let the angle be x

Solution:

Then:

supplement of x = (180 – x) complement of x = (90 – x)

and: 2 (supplement of x) = 5 (complement of x) Hence:

2(180 − x ) = 5(90 − x ) 360 − 2 x = 450 − 5 x − 2 x + 5 x = 450 − 360 3 x = 90 x = 30

Supplement of x (180 – x)

x (90 – x) Complement of x

Hence the angle is 30°.

Naming the Sides and Angles of a Triangle Angles: There are three common systems of naming the angles of a triangle:

A

1. Using the vertices, with the vertex of the angle in the center.

α

2. Using a number or letter (often a Greek letter) inside the angle. 3. According to the vertex of the triangle at that angle. In the diagram the angle at the vertex A can be called ∠BAC, ∠ α, or ∠ A.

C B

Sides: There are two common ways to name the sides of a triangle: 1. According to two vertices it connects. The sides of ∆ABC (diagram above) are AB, BC and AC. 2. According to the vertex of the angle opposite the side. Each side of the triangle is named using the lower case letter corresponding to the letter of the vertex of the triangle opposite that side. B c

a

In the triangle ∆ABC the vertices of the triangle are A, B, and C and the sides of this triangle must be a, b, and c, such that: The side opposite the vertex A is called a. The side opposite the vertex B is called b. The side opposite the vertex C is called c.

A b

C We often use this second method in trigonometry because the name of each side of a triangle indicates its specific relationship to the angles of the triangle.

Right Triangle: One angle of the triangle a right angle.

The other two angles of the triangle are acute and complementary. The side of the triangle opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse. The other sides are called the legs of the triangle. The hypotenuse is always the longest side of the triangle. Pythagoras’ Theorem states the important relationship between the lengths of the sides of a right triangle.

Isosceles Triangle: A triangle with two sides of equal length.

Properties: ; The angles opposite to the equal sides are congruent. ; The third (unequal) angle of the triangle is called the apex. A line from the apex to the midpoint of the opposite side of the triangle bisects the apex angle from which it passes and is perpendicular to the opposite side. Any altitude of the triangle from the apex to the base is also a median and an angle bisector.

; Any median or altitude of the triangle divides the triangle into 2 congruent right triangles, with angles of 30°, 60°, and.90°. We will use this special property in the study of Trigonometry.

Similar Triangles

Two triangles are similar if their angles are equal. The three corresponding pairs of sides are then in fixed proportion. Example 3:

The triangles ∆DEF and ∆ZXY are similar, written ∆ABC ≈ ∆ZXY, since ∠ D = ∠ Z, ∠ F = ∠ Y, then (using the angle sum of the triangle) we must have ∠ E = 50° = ∠ X. So three corresponding angles are equal.

18.1.3: RIGHT TRIANGLES Some Properties Of Right Triangles: THEOREM: Proof:

Since ∆ABC is a right triangle, ∠CAB and ∠ABC are complementary, so: ∠ABC = 90 - x° Since ∆BCD is a right triangle, ∠ABC and ∠BCD are complementary, so: ∠ BCD = 90 - (90 - x°) = x° Since ∠ BCD = x°, and ∠BCD and ∠ACD are complementary, ∠ ACD = 90 - x° So ∠CAB = ∠CAD = ∠ BCD = x° ∠ ABC = ∠ACD = ∠ CBD = 90 - x°

and

Three angles of each triangle are equal to three angles of each of the others, hence the three triangles ∆ABC, ∆ADC, and ∆BCD are similar. The three triangles can be broken apart: C

In similar triangles, the ratio of corresponding sides is fixed. Specifically, since ∆ABC and ∆ADC are similar, then: CD AD AC CD AC AD = = = BC AC AB BC AB AC Rearranging these ratios (see below) we get: AC AD = BC CD

BC CD = AB AC

Since ∆ABC and ∆BCD are similar, and ∆ADC and ∆BCD are similar, we can apply the same process and arrive at the final result that: AC AD CD = = BC CD DB

AB AC BC = = BC CD BD

AB AC BC = = AC AD CD

This result will be important to us when we derive the trigonometric ratios. ASIDE: Rearranging the Ratios: If Cross − multiply Divide both sides by CD ⋅ BC Canceling

Example 1: Solution:

CD AD = BC AC CD ⋅ AC = AD ⋅ BC CD ⋅ AC AD ⋅ BC = CD ⋅ BC CD ⋅ BC AC AD = BC CD

If CD is a altitude of ∆ABC (see diagram) find x. By the above theorem, the three right triangles formed by the altitude CD are similar. So BD CD = CD AD

In a right triangle ∆ABC the line CD is an altitude from the right angle ∠ACB to the hypotenuse AB. By the theorem above, the three right triangles formed, ∆ABC, ∆ADC, and ∆BCD are similar and the sides are in fixed proportion.

Page 14

Since any isosceles right triangle must have angles of 45°- 45°- 90° it will be similar to this triangle and will therefore have sides in the same fixed ratio. This leads us to the following theorem: The sides of any isosceles right triangle are in the fixed ratio of 1 : 1 : 2 . That is, in any isosceles right triangle the hypotenuse is of the legs of the triangle.

Furthermore, any right triangle with one angle of either 30° or 60° will be similar to the above and will therefore have sides in the same fixed ratio. This leads us to the following theorem: In any 30o - 60o - 90o triangle the ratio of the leg opposite the 30° angle to the leg opposite the 60° angle to the hypotenuse is 1 : 3 : 2 Chapter 1: Geometry Review

If the wire is anchored 30 meters from the base of the tower, how tall is the tower to the nearest tenth of a meter? Let the cell tower be x meters in height.

Therefore a 2 + b 2 ≠ c 2 and the triangle is not a right triangle.

Example 14:

{ a, b , c} which obeys the rule

a 2 + b 2 = c 2 is called a Pythagorean

{ 3, 4, 5} is a Pythagorean Triad since 32 + 42 = 9 + 16 = 25 = 52

{ 1, 2, 3} is not a Pythagorean Triad since 12 + 22 = 1 + 4 =5 ≠ 32
