TRIGONOMETRIC TABLES
Trigonometric tables deals with readings of the value of angles of sine, cosine and tangent from mathematical table when they are already prepared into four decimal
HOW TO READ THE VALUE OF TRIGONOMETRIC ANGLES FROM MATHEMATICAL TABLES
Example 1
Find the value of the following by using mathematical table
(i) Sin 43°= 0.6820
(ii) Sin 58º = 0.8480
(iii) Sin 24°42′ = 0.4179
(iv) Sin 52°26′ = 0.7923 + 4 = 0.7927

Example 2
By using mathematical tables evaluate the following
(a)Cos 37° =0.7986
(b)Cos82° =0.1392
(c)Cos 71°34′ =0.3162
(d)Tan 20° = 0.3640
(e)Tan 68° =2.4751
(f)Tan 54°22′ = 1.3950
Example3.
Find the value of the following letter from trigonometric rations
(i) Sin p = 0.6820
Sin p = 0.6820
P = Sin-1 (0.6820)
P = 43°
ii) Sin Q = 0.7291
Q = Sin-1 (0.7291)
Q = 46°48’
iii) Tan R = 5.42°45
R = 5. 42°45
R = tan-1 (5.42°45)
R = 79°33
APPLICATION OF SINE, COSINE AND TANGENT RATIOS IN SOLVING A TRIANGLE
Sine, cosine and triangle of angles are used to solve the length of unknown sides of triangles

Sin 55Ëš= C:thlbcrtzTRIGONOMETRIC_RATIO_F2_filesimage132.gif
20 x Sin 55Ëš= x
20 x 0.8198 = x
x = 16.4 cm
The value of x = 16.4cm

13 x tan 62° = xy
13 x 1.8807 = xy
24.4cm = xy
xy = 24.4cm
