Right Triangle Formulas

The Pythagorean Theorem:
A? + O? = H?

Trigonometric Functions:
Sin(x) = O/H
Cos(x) = A/H
Tan(x) = O/A

Inverse Trigonometric Functions
x = Ascsin[sin(x)]
x = Arccos[cos(x)]
x = Arctan[tan(x)]

Trigonometric Function Values

To calculate trigonometric function values, you’ll need to use a scientific calculator or a table of trigonometric function values. Scientific calculators are relatively inexpensive to buy and are a handy tool to have around the shop. Free scientific calculators can often be found by searching the Web. Below, you’ll find a good old fashioned table of trigonometric function values for the sine, cosine and tangent functions.
