Fundamental Trigonometric Identities

These are your basic building blocks for solving trigonometric equations and understanding how the pieces fit together. Using these identities can make sense of even the scariest looking trig.

Level 3

         

\[ \sin ^{ 2 }{ 1^{\circ} } +\sin ^{ 2 }{ 2^{\circ} } +\sin ^{ 2 }{ 3^{\circ} } + \ldots \\ +\sin ^{ 2 }{ 88^{\circ} } +\sin ^{ 2 }{ 89^{\circ} } +\sin ^{ 2 }{ 90^{\circ} } = \ ? \]

\[ \large \frac { \sin ^{ 2 }{ \theta } }{ 5 } =\frac { \cos ^{ 2 }{ \theta } }{ 6 }\]

If \(\theta \) is a positive acute angle that satisfies the equation above, find \(\sin { \theta }\).

Note: Give your answer to 3 decimal places.

\[ \displaystyle \sum_{k=1}^{50} \Bigg [ \bigg(1 + \tan(k^\circ)+\sec(k^\circ)\bigg)\ \bigg(1+\cot(k^\circ)-\csc(k^\circ) \bigg)\Bigg]=\ ? \ \]

\[ \Large \left(\sqrt{2+\sqrt{2}}\right)^{x} + \left(\sqrt{2-\sqrt{2}}\right)^{x} = 2^{x}\]

Find the sum of all real \(x\) that satisfy the equation above.

\[ \large\frac { 1 }{ \cos ^{ 2 }{ \theta } } +\frac { 1 }{ 1+\sin ^{ 2 }{ \theta } } +\frac { 2 }{ 1+\sin ^{ 4 }{ \theta } } +\frac { 4 }{ 1+\sin ^{ 8 }{ \theta } } \]

If \( \large \sin ^{ 16 }{ \theta } = \frac { 1 }{ 5 } \), what is the value of the expression above?
