PREFACE The common examination syllabus ' Trigonometry up to and including solution of triangles ' has caused most textbooks to treat the subject as if the sole use of Trigonometry were to solve triangles, and the practical examples deal almost exclusively with various forms of triangle-solving under the heading ' Heights and Dis- tances '. Further it is customary to define the trigono- metrical ratios by means of a right-angled triangle; this encourages the mistaken idea that the ratios are fundamentally attached to a triangle, and does not impress upon the pupil the fact that they are the pro- perty of an angle and of an angle only. In this book the trigonometrical ratios are introduced as functions of the angle. The trigonometrical proper- ties of the single angle are treated fully in the early chapters, and from the beginning the examples apply Trigonometry wherever it may be useful, to Geometry, Mensuration, Analytical Geometry, Physical formulae, &c. The right-angled triangle definitions are given in Chapter Y. This chapter contains, in addition to the usual matter, a short treatment of Plane Sailing in Navigation. It is hoped that the examples in Navigation will provide practice in the use of tables, and at the same time be of interest to the pupil. Other examples 260011 4 PREFACE in this chapter lead up to the formulae dealing with the ordinary triangle. The formulae for ^ A are proved by Geometry, indepen- dently of tlie addition formulae; thus the triangle is treated fully without breaking the sequence with a dis- cussion of the A + B and allied formulae. A chapter is devoted to Projection. This includes a discussion of Vector Quantities, their composition and resolution, and finishes with a geometrical treatment of Demoivre's Theorem. In the last chapter, the addi- tion formulae and the allied formulae are treated fully ; the projection proofs are used and recommended but the old-fashioned proofs are also given Throughout the book the student is given every oppor- tunity of developing the subject for himself. A large portion of the bookwork first occurs among the examples of earlier chapters. Also, when a formula has been proved, the proofs of others of the same kind are left for the student to supply. Thus, when siii^A + cos^^ = 1 has been proved, the student should have no difficulty in proving the connexion between sec^A and tsui^A; when sin(^ + ^) has been found, the student should himself find the expanded form of cos (J. + B), Sec. The sets of examples in the body of a chapter arc num- bered IV. a, IV. b, &c. ; these deal only with the matter immediately preceding them. The last set of examples in a chapter has no distinguishing letter and serves for revision of the whole chapter. There are also three sets of Revision Examples, l^ookwork is frequentl}^ set as an example, both in the Revision Sets and elsewhere ; only by constant repetition, oral or written, can the PEEFACE 5 bookwork be learnt. There are a few sets of oral examples; these are intended to fill up spare minutes at the end of a lesson and often bring out the weak points in a pupil's knowledge. The book contains nearly 1,000 examples ; it is not intended that any one should attempt all these, but it is hoped that they include a sufficient variety of types and a sufficient number of each type to meet all requirements. Many examples are taken from Examination Papers by kind permission of the following authorities : — The Controller of His Majesty's Stationery Office. The University of Cambridge. The Joint Matriculation Board of the Scottish Univer- sities. The Intermediate Education Board for Ireland. The Oxford and Cambridge Schools Examination Board. The Delegacy for Oxford Local Examinations. The Syndicate for Cambridge Local Examinations. The College of Preceptors. I am indebted to Mr. Norman Chignell, B.A., of Charterhouse, for many suggestions and for assistance in correcting the proof-sheets. It is too much to hope that the answers are wholly free from mistakes, and I shall be grateful to receive early intimation of any corrections that may be found necessary. VV. E. P. April, 1911.

PliELIMINAEY CHAPTEE GEOMETRY A KNOWLEDGE of the following geometrical facts is required.* In this book these propositions are referred to by the numbers given below. Angles. Prop. 1. If a straight line meets another straight line, the adjacent angles are together equal to two right angles. Prop. 2. If two straight lines cut, the vertically opposite angles are equal. Prop. 3. The angle at the centre of a circle is double an angle at the circumference standing on the same arc. Prop. 4. Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal. Prop. 5. Angles at the centre of a circle standing on different arcs are in the same ratio as the lengths of the arcs. Triangles. Prop. 6. [a] The three angles of a triangle are together equal to two right angles. (&) If one side be produced the exterior angle equals the sum of the two interior opposite angles. Prop. 7. Any two sides of a triangle are together greater than the third. Proj). 8. Two triangles are congruent (i. e. are equal in every respect) if they have — (a) two sides of the one equal to two sides of the other, each to each, and the angle contained by the two sides of the one equal to the angle contained by the two corresponding sides of the other ; or (h) three sides of the one equal to three sides of the other, each to each ; or (c) two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, * For proofs see Warren's Experimental and Theoretical Geometry (Clarendon Press), or any standard textbook. 10 GEOMETRY each to each, and a side of the one equal to the corresponding side of the other. Prop. 9. If two triangles have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other, and the sides about another pair of angles equal, each to each, then the third angles are either equal or supplementary. Prop. 10. (a) If two sides of a triangle are equal, the opposite angles are equal. (&) If two sides are unequal, the greater side is opposite a greater angle. (c) If all the sides of a triangle are equal, all the angles are equal. Prop. 11. (a) If two angles of a triangle are equal, the opposite sides are equal. {b) If two angles are unequal, the greater angle is opposite a greater side. (c) If all the angles of a triangle are equal, all the sides are equal. Prop. 12. Two triangles are similar (i. e. their angles are equal, each to each, and the ratio of pairs of sides opposite equal angles is the same for all three angles) if they have — {a) their angles equal each to each ; (6) their sides in the same ratio ; (c) an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other, and the sides about the equal angles in the same ratio. Prop. 13. (Pythagoras' Theorem.) In a right-angled triangle the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides. Parallel Lines. Prop. 14. (a) If a line is drawn to cut two parallel lines, it makes (i) the alternate angles equal, (ii) the interior angles on the same side of it together equal to two right angles, (iii) the exterior angle equal to the interior opposite angle. (b) The opposite sides and angles of a parallelogram are equal. Area. The unit of area is the area of a square whose side is of unit length. Prop. 15. The number of units of area in a rectangle is equal to the product of the number of units of length in one side multi- plied by the number of units of length in the other. GEOMETRY 11 Or, more shortly : Area of rectangle = length x breadth. Proio. 16. The area of a triangle = \ base x altitude. The Concurrencies of the Triangle. Prop. 17. The lines bisecting the sides of a triangle at right angles are concurrent (i. e. meet at a point). The point in which they meet is the centre of the circle passing through the three vertices and is called the circumcentre. Prop. 18. The lines drawn from the vertices to bisect the oppo- site sides are concurrent. These lines are called the medians and the point of concurrency is called the centroid. Prop. 19. (a) The lines bisecting the angles are concurrent. The point of concurrency is the centre of the circle that touches all the sides, and is called the incentre. (&) If two of the sides be produced, the lines bisecting the ex- terior angles so formed and the line bisecting the interior angle contained by the produced sides are concurrent. The point of concurrency is the centre of the circle that touches the two sides when produced and the third side (not produced) ; it is called an e-centre. Prop. 20. The perpendiculars let fall from the vertices on the opposite sides are concurrent. The point of concurrency is called orthocentre. The Circle. Prop. 21. The straight line passing through the centre, at right angles to a chord, bisects the chord. Prop. 22. [a) The angle at the centre of a circle is twice the angle at the circumference on the same arc. (&) Angles in the same segment are equal, (c) The opposite angles of a quadri- lateral inscribed in a circle are together equal to two right angles. Prop. 23. The tangent at any point is at right angles to the radius drawn to that point. Prop. 24. (a) Two tangents can be drawn to a circle from any external point. (&) The parts of these tangents between the external point and the points of contact are equal, (c) The line joining the external point to the centre bisects the angle between the tangrents. 12 GEOMETRY Prop. 25. The ratio of the circumference of any circle to its diameter is the same for ail circles. This ratio is denoted by the symbol tv : its value is 3*1416 correct to five significant figures. Prop. 26. The area of a circle equals the area of the rectangle contained by the radius and a straight line equal to half the circumference. This is usually expressed in the formula : Area = tt r^. GRAPHS* Geometrical. If two straight lines are drawn in a plane, the position of any point in the plane can be determined by means of its distances from those lines. Y Fig. 1. It is usual to draw one of the lines horizontal and the other perpendicular to it. The customary notation is shown in Fig. 1. X'OX is called the axis of x ; Y'OY i% called the axis of y; is called the origin ; ON is called the abscissa of the point P; NP is called the ordinate of the point P. The abscissa and ordinate are called the co-ordinates t of the point P. * For a fuller treatment of Graphs see School Algebra published by the Clarendon Press. t Tliese co-ordinates are called Cartesian co-ordinates because they were first used by the French mathematician, Descartes. GRAPHS 13 The abscissa is said to be positive if drawn to the right, negative if drawn to the left. Similarly, the ordinate is positive if drawn upwards from N, negative if drawn downwards. The number of units of length in ON, preceded by the proper sign, is usually denoted by x, and the number of units of length in NP, preceded by the proper sign, is denoted by tj. In each case the sign + is often omitted. Thus, in Fig. 2, the co-ordinates of A are x = -4, y = 2, of C, x = 4:, y = ^, oi L, x = (), y = -7. 1 1 1 1 1 1 Y io 1 B 5 1 ID 1 c X A X O r~ 5 K 1 1 1 Gl E H 5 . i 1 1 1 V 1 LI 1 1 1 ^°, 1 1 1 i 1 1 Y| 1 1 1 1 i Fig. 2. Very often a point is described by writing the values of the co-ordinates in brackets ; e. g. the point H might be described as the point ( — 6, —4). Exercise. Write down the co-ordinates of all the points in Fig.- 2. Graphs of Statistics. The magnitude of any quantity may be represented by a straight line which contains as many units of length as the quantity contains units of its own kind. If two quantities are changing their values at the same time, 14 GRAPHS the simultaneous values may be represented in the same figure by taking horizontal lengths to represent one magnitude and vertical lengths to represent the other. 1 ~ 5 1 ' 1 1 i / 4 5 / / ' \ 4 1 \ \ / \ / / 3 5 1 \ / 1 i3 / « 3> / / c i 1 1 O / V / j 1 \ 1 1 S.\M. T. W. 1 Th. F. Sot. 1 i i 1 1 1 1 1 1 Fig. 3. In Fig, 3 the changing quantities are time and temperature ; and the dots show that at noon on Sunday the temperature was 29°, on Monday the temperature was 35, &c. In fact the figure conveys the same information as the following table : — Sun. Mon. Tues. Wed. Thurs. Fri. Sat. Temp. 29° 85° 42° 31° 27° 43° 50° If there is no information about intermediate temperatures, the points are joined by a series of straight lines. The figure now forms a graph. In describing such a graph we should say that the abscissae represent time and the ordinates temperature. Graphs of functions. If two quantities x and // are such that a change of value in the one causes a change of value in tiie other, then either of them is said to be a function of the other. GRAPHS 15 This is expressed thus : y =f{x), or x =f{y) where f[x) means a function of x. A graph can be drawn in which the abscissae are proportional to the values of x and the ordinates to the values of y. This graph is called the graph of the function f{x) or of the equation y=f{x). This maybe more easily understood by considering a few algebraical functions. Example I. Draw the graph when y = \x-% (Choose values of x which will make y a whole number.) y = \{^x-2) X -6-149 Zx-1 -20 -5 10 25 y _ 4 -1 2 5 - 1 - f^ 5 y ^ y ! / r^ 1 I>^1 1 ^ !

When the points corresponding to these values of x and y are plotted, it is found that they lie on the straight line shown in Fig. 4, It is also found (i) That any simultaneous values of x and y connected by the given equation are the co-ordinates of some point on this straight line ; (ii) That the co-oidinates of any point on the straight line satisfy the equation. It is found by experience (and can be proved from the geo- 16 GRAPHS metrical propositions on proportion) that, when x and y are connected by an equation of the first degree, the graph is always a straight line. Example II. In the same figure draw the graphs of y = x^-^x-V^ and r» = 2f/H3. Neither of these- equations is of the first degree, therefore neither of the graphs is a straight line. At least six points must be found on each. yr=x^-Zx\'l.

Hence the co-ordinates of any points which are on both graphs, that is, the co-ordinates of the points of intersection, satisfy both equations. Fig. 5 shows, therefore, that the values x = '3, t/ = I'S, and X = 2'8, y = 1*6, are the solutions of the two equations. This graphical method of solving equations is very useful, but is, of course, only approximate. If more accurate answers are required, the graphs must be drawn on a larger scale in the neighbourhood of their points of intersection. LOGARITHMS * Fractional and Negative Indices. It is shown in Algebra that p _ 1 where p and g are any positive integers and x is any positive quantity, integral or fractional. A fractional index may be expressed as a decimal ; thus such expressions as 4'^^ 10*'°^ have a definite value. This value could in theory be found by reducing the decimal to a vulgar fraction and then replacing the power with a fractional index by a root, e.g. 10-301 This is obviously not practical. The value can be found by a graphical method which is easy but only approximate. Di-aw the graph of x = lO*'. * For a fuller treatment of Indices and Logarithms see School Algebra, Chapters XXI and XXII. _301_ , IQIOOO _ 1000 /j^QSOl \ 18 LOGARITHMS y •5 •25 •125 'lb •625 •875 1 X 1 3-16 1-76 1-33 5-62 426 7-49 10 The values of x are obtained as follows : — 10° = 1 by definition given above. 10-» = 10^ = VIo. 10-25 = 10^= V^\/ 10; similarly W^'-^^^ ^W\ W^ = 10-5+-25 = 10-5 X 10*25, &c. The graph is shown on a small scale in Fig. 6. It is seen that 10'^° is almost exactly 2 ; any other power of 10 can be found approximately from this graph when the index is between and 10. Definition of a logarithm. The logarithm of a number to a given base is the index of the power to which the base must be raised to equal the number. Thus 3^'= 9, therefore the logarithm of 9 to base 3 equals 2 ; this is written log3 9 = 2. In dealing with numbers the base is 10. In the remainder of this chapter it is assumed that the base is always 10, so that log 731 means logarithm of 731 to base 10. The equation x = 10^ may be written t/ = log x. Hence Fig. 6 provides an approximate means of finding the logarithm of any number between 1 and 10. Characteristic and mantissa. Consider a number, such as 4878. It means 4xlO.H3x 102 + 7x10 + 8. Also a decimal number, such as '0376, means A A _I_ _?_ 10 "^ 1Q2 "^ 10^ "^10^* If we use negative indices, this may be written •0376 = 3 X 10-2 + 7 X 10-^ + 6 x 10"*. Similarly 537-13 = 5 X 102 + 3 x 10^ + 7 X 10'' + 1 X 10-i + 3 x lO"''. It follows that 4378 > 103 but < 10\ •0376 > 10-2 but < 10-^ 587-13 > 102 but < 10», 4-37 > 10° but < 10\ •. log 4378 = 3 + a decimal ; •. log "0376 = - 2 + a decimal ; •. log 537-13 = 2 + a decimal ; •. log 4'37 = + a decimal. LOGARITHMS 19 We now see (i) that the logarithm of any number consists of an integer (which may be positive, zero, or negative) and a positive Fig. 6. decimal, (ii) that the integer is the index of the highest power of 10 contained in the number. The integral part of a logarithm is called the characteristic ; the decimal part the mantissa.

The characteristic is positive or zero if the number is greater than one, negative if it is less than one. The mantissa is independent of the position of the de- cimal point. An example will make this clear. Given that log 4-376 = -6411, find log 4376 and log -004376. 4376 = 1000 X 4-376 but 4-376 = 10-"" since log 4*376 = '6411. .-. 4376 = 10^ X 10-<'^^i = 10s-6"S i. e. log 4376 = 3-6411 •004376 = 1 J-oo X 4*376 = 10-^ x lO-^^i = io-3+-64n .-. log -004376 = -3 + -6411. The negative sign of a characteristic is always placed on top and the + before the decimal is omitted. Thus log '004376 = 3-6411. To find the logarithm of any number. (a) Four-figure tables. The mantissa is found from tables, of which a specimen is given below.

By counting, the characteristic of log 5467 is found to be 3, and that of log '05467 to be 2. Both logarithms have the same mantissa. Look for 54 in t)ie extreme left-hand column. In the same line with 54 and under 6 we find 7372 ; this is the mantissa of log 546. Under the 7 in the small columns to the right, and in a line with 54, we find 6 ; this must be added to the last digit of the mantissa already found. Hence the mantissa is '7378. Therefore log 5467 = 3'7378 and log '05467 = 2*7378. LOGARITHMS 21 (b) Five-figure tables. Find the logarithm of 346'73. Proceeding as -with four-figure tables, we find that the mantissa of log 346 is '53908. ,Under 7 in the side columns, we find 88 ; this must be added to the last two digits already found. For a 3 in the fourth place we should add 38, for a 3 in the fifth place we add, therefore, ^^ x 38, i. e. 4 to nearest integer. Hence log 3467-3 = 2-53908 + 88 + 4 = 2-54000. To find the number corresponding to any logarithm. Method I. Reverse the process for finding a logarithm. Sup- pose the logarithm is 3*7271. Look in the logarithms for the mantissa nearest to 7271, but less than it. We find 7267, level with 53 and under 3 ; the first three figures of the number are 533. This leaves 7271 - 7267 = 4 ; in the right-hand columns 4 is found under 5. Hence the first four figures are 5335. The characteristic is 3, therefore the left-hand digit 5 represents 5 X 10^ ; hence the number is bd\p. The number is called the antilogarithm of the logarithm. Method II. If tables of antilogarithms are available, they are used in the same way as kcarithm tables.

Hence the first four figures are 5334. The characteristic is 3 ; as before, the number is 5334. Note. — The two methods give results differing by 1 in the last figure ; this shows that the number is between the two results. On using five-figure tables, it is found that the antilogarithm of 3'7271 is 5334-5. 22 LOGARITHMS Use of Logarithms. By the definition of logaritlim a = lO^oga, & = lO^os^, .-. db = 10log«x IQlos^ = iQlogrt+logft. Hence log (a6) = loga + log &. Similarly log ajh = log a — log &, log a'" = wi log a, log Vi/a = — log a. Thus, instead of multiplying, we may use logarithms and add ; dividing, ,, „ subtract; raising to a power, „ ,, multiply ; taking a root, „ „ divide.

Any angle such as BAC (Fig. I) may be thought of as having been formed by rotating the line AC about the point A from the position of coincidence with AB to its final position AC. Fig. I. This way of regarding an angle shows clearly the intimate connexion between angles and arcs of circles and this connexion leads to the usual method of measuring angles. 2. The Degree.* From very early times it has been the custom to divide the circumference of a circle into 360 equal parts or * 'The current sexagesimal division of angles is derived from the Babylonians through the Greeks. The Babylonian unit angle was the angle of an equilateral triangle; following their usual practice this was divided into 60 equal parts or degrees, a degree was subdivided into 60 equal parts or minutes, and so on ; it is said that 60 was assumed as the base of the system in order that the number of degrees corresponding to the circumference of a circle should be the same as the number of days in a year which it is alleged was taken, at any rate in practice, to be 360.' (From A Short Account of the Hisfory of Mathe- matics, by W. W. Rouse Ball.) 26 ANGLES AND THEIR MEASUREMENT degrees, each degree into 60 parts or minutes,* each minute into 60 seconds.^ The angle at the centre of a circle, subtended by an arc of 1 degree, is taken as the unit angle, and it, too, is called a degree ; it is divided into minutes and seconds in the same way as the arc degree. The notation used is shown in the following example : — 47° 15' 37" is read 47 degrees 15 minutes 37 seconds. If the line makes a complete rotation, thus returning to its original position, it has turned through an angle of 360°. A right angle is produced by one-quarter of a complete rotation, and is, therefore, equal to 90°. If two angles together equal a right angle, either of them is called the complement of the other. When the sum equals two right angles, either angle is the supplement of the other. 3. Positive and Negative Angles. In discussing the properties of a single angle it is usual to draw the initial line so that it is horizontal and to name it OA. If the rotating line moves in a direction opposite to that of the hands of a clock, the angle is said to be positive ; if in the same direction as the hands of a clock, the angle is negative.

ANGLES AND THEIR MEASUREMENT 27 In Fig. II the line OP has made i of a complete turn, hence the angle ^OP = i x 360° = 45° ; in Fig. Ill the angle ^ OP is reflex * and is equal to § x 360° = 225°. If, in Fig. II, the line OP reached its position b}-- turning in the negative direction it would have made | of a complete turn so that the reflex angle ^OP in Fig. II = -315°. Similarly in Fig. Ill the obtuse angle AOP= -135°. 4. Angles unlimited in size. In Fig. II the line OP might have made one, two, or any number of complete turns, either positive or negative, and then have moved on to its final position : hence the angle AOP may represent 405°, or 765°, or —675°. All possible values are included in the general formula ^0P= 360 n + 45, where n is any whole number, positive, zero, or negative. Unless the problem under discussion allows the possibility of the angle being greater than 360°, it is always assumed that the angle is less than 360°. 5. The Grade. When the metric system was invented, the French Mathematicians introduced a new unit, the Grade, such that 100 grades = 1 right angle, 100 minutes = 1 grade, 100 seconds = 1 minute. This system never came into general use, even in France, and now exists only in old-fashioned examination papers. Examples I a. 1. Find the complement of each of the following angles: 32°, 47° 23', 75° 13' 14", 68°0'13", 27° 42' 18-6". 2. Write down the supplements of 75°, 68° 14', 115° 17' 48" 90°, 78° 24' 36". 3. The angles of a triangle are found to be 42° 13' 17", 73° 47' 5", 64° 0' 38". Is this correct ? 4. Two angles of a triangle are 17° 43', 92° 16'; calculate the third angle. 5. In a triangle ABC, 1{A + B) = 77° 29' and \{A-B) = 16° 25' ; find all the angles. * A reflex angle is an angle greater than two right angles, but less than four right angles. 28 ANGLES AND THEIR MEASUREMENT 6.

Draw the angles A and ^A in each of the following cases: («) A = 54°, (b) A = 414°, (c) A = 774°, (d) A = 1134°, (e) 234^ (/) -126°. 10. Through what angles do the hour, minute, and second hands of a watch respectively turn between 12^ 30' a.m. and 5h 3' a.m. ? 6. The ratio of the length of the circumference of a circle to the length of its diameter is the same for all circles. This constant value is denoted by the Greek letter -n (pro- nounced pi), so that if the circumference = c units of length, and diameter = cl units of length, then - = 77. d The value of tt can be found, correct to two or three significant figures, by actual measurement. By geometrical and trigono- metrical calculations its value can be calculated to any desired number of places. Correct to 5 significant figures, n = 31416. Correct to 6 significant figures, n = 314159. For mental calculations tt may be taken as 31. 7. By using Prop. 5, p. 9, problems dealing with the lengths of circular arcs may often be solved. Example.

Circular measure. By the method of the last section it is easily shown that the length of an arc of a circle, Att radius r, subtending an angle A° at the centre is r -— - . loO In many other formulae the fraction -— occurs in con- nexion with the angle A°. In theoretical work it has, therefore, been found convenient to use another unit angle, which simplifies formulae considerably. The radian is the angle subtended at the centre of any circle by an arc equal in length to the radius. Let x° equal 1 radian arc equal to radius _ angle of 1 radian _ x°^ semi-circumference 2 right angles 180° '•^* 7rr~180°' Since n is the same for all circles, it follows that the radian is the same for all circles and may, therefore, be taken as a unit of measurement. The number of radians in an angle is often called the circular measure of the angle. For this reason the symbol <^ is used to show that the angle is measured in radians, e. g. 2^^ means 2 radians. When the radian is the unit angle, it is customary to use Greek letters to denote the number of radians, and the symbol '^ is then often omitted. When capital English letters are used, it is usually understood that the angle is measured in degrees. 30 ANGLES AND THEIR MEASUREMENT Examples I b. 1.

The card of the Mariner's Compass is divided into four quadrants by two diameters pointing North and South, East and AVest respectively. These are the Cardinal Points. Two other diameters bisecting the angles between the previous diameters give four other points, viz. NE., NW., SW., SE. The eight angles so formed are bisected and eight more points are thus obtained. These are named by com- -biningthe names of the points between which they lie, beginning with the cardinal point. Thus the point midway between E. and SE. is ESE. (East South-East). The sixteen angles now formed are bisected so that the circum- ference is finally divided into thirty two equal divisions. From their names the last sixteen points are called by-points. The point midway between N. and NNE. is called N. by E. ; that mid- way between SW. and SSW. is called SW. by S., &c. 32 ANGLES AND THEIR MEASUREMENT The angle between two consecutive points of the compass is also called a point, thus N. 2 points E. is the same as NNE. ; WSW. \ W. means | a point W. of WSW. The ordinary degree is sometimes used in defining a direction, for instance ENE. can be referred to as 221° N. of E. Similarly we may have 32° W. of N., 40° S. of W., &c. 10. Latitude and Longitude. The position of a point on a sphere can be defined by two angles, which may be compared with the abscissa and ordinate of plane geometry. These angles are easily understood by considering the special case of Longitude and Latitude. In Fig. V the meridian through Greenwich cuts the equator at A ; the meridian through P cuts at B. is the centre of the Earth. The Longitude of Pis the angle AOB and may be either East or West of the Greenwich meridian. The Latitude of Pis the angle FOB and may be either North or South of the Equator. Note. — A geographical or nautical mile is the lengtli of an arc of a meridian (or of the equator) subtending an angle of 1' at the centre of the earth. ANGLES AND THEIR MEASUREMENT 33 A ship travelling at the rate of I nautioal mile per hour is said to have a speed of one knot. 11. Gradient. It is usual to estimate the inclination to the horizontal of a road or hill by the distance risen veitically for a certain horizontal distance. Thus a hill might be said to rise 3 in 5 ; this would mean that if a horizontal line were drawn through a point B on the hill to meet the vertical line through a lower point A at C, then AC/BC would equal ?. The hill is said to have a gradient or slope of 3 in 5. Fig. VI. It is clear that in many cases it is easier to measure AB than BC; and some books take a gradient of 3 in o to mean a rise of 3 vertically for a distance 5 measured along the incline ; so that in the figiire AC/AB would be f. This latter interpretation of gradient is very common in books on Theoretical Mechanics. If the inclination is small, it makes no practical difference whicli interpretation of gradient is taken. It should be noticed that the angle is the same whatever units be used ; that is whether we consider a rise of 3 inches in 5 inches, 3 furlongs in 5 furlongs, 3 miles in '5 miles. This follows from Prop. 12 0. Examples I c. 1.

Similarly, if ^OPismeasured in radians, sin 6, cos f/^ cosec \//, &c., are used. 13. Trigonometry was developed by Arabian and Greek astrono- mers who based their work on the circular arc and not on the angle. In the Middle Ages this early mathematical work was translated into Latin, and so the present names of the nitio were derived. The following section shows the reasons for these names. 14. Draw a circle with centre cutting the initial line at .1 and the perpendicular to it at B. Take a point P on the circumference of the circle. Draw the tangent at yl and product' OP to meet it at T. Draw PN perpendicular to ()A. AT wiiH called the tangent of the arc AP. OT, which cuts the circle, was called the secant of the arc AP. THE TRIGONOMETRICAL RATIOS 39 . NP was called the sine * of the arc AP. Clearly the lengths o^ AT, 02] AP change when the radius OA changes, even if the angle .lOP remain constant. But from similar triangles it is seen that, if the angle is constant, the ratios oi AT, OT, NP to the radius are also constant. Hence, as Trigonometry developed, it was seen to he advisable to divide hy * The word ' sine' is derived from the Latin sinus. If in Fig, VIII P^y be produced to meet the circumference at P', then PAP' resembles a bow (Latin arcus) of which PXP' is the string or chord (Latin chorda}. To use the bow, the string is pulled till JV touclies the bosom (Latin sinus^ ; hence PX is called the sine. NA is often called the sagitta of the arc. 40 THE TRIGONOMETRICAL RATIOS the radius and to treat the subject as depending on the angle AOF rather than on the arc A P.

Then sine of the complement of the angle AOP __ sine of the complementary arc BP radius ^ XP OP _ ON ~ OP ' '' ' Sine of the complement of ' was shortened into co-sine. Possibly ' complementary sine ' was an intermediate stage. [Similarly, co- tangent and cosecant were derived. Since the values of the ratios depend on the values of the angle, the term Trigonometrical Functions is often used instead of Trigonometrical Ratios. Frequently the ratios are referred to as Circular Functions. 15. Ratios rarely used, in Fig. VIII N A is called the vorsine (i. e. versed sine) of the are AV. X'B is called t])e coversine of the arc AP. AP (not joined in the figure) is the chord of the arc AP. If we divide each of these by the radius we get the corresponding ratios of the angles AOP. These ratios are very rarely used. Another function that is now rarely used is tlie haversino, i. c. half the versed sine. 16. Projection Formulae. It is useful to remember that ON (i. e. the projection of the radius on the initial line) = r cos 6 and iYi^(i. e. the projection ot the radius on a line perpen- dicular to tlie initial line) = ;• sin 0. THE TRIGONOMETRICAL RATIOS 11 17. Polar co-ordinates. The position of a point P is determined if the distance OF from a fixed point is known and also the angle this distance makes with a fixed line OX through 0. The length is usually denoted by y and the angle by 6 ; these are the polar co-ordinates of P. In this connexion is called the pole. 18. Graphs of Trigonometrical Functions. The definitions of the last suction lead to an easy method of drawing the graphs. On page -12 the sine graph (i.e. the graph of the equation «/ = sin x) is given. It is obtained as follows : Step 1. On the extreme left of the paper (which should be ruled in squares) draw a circle with its centre at the intersection of two lines. Take the horizontal radius CA as initial line. Step 2. The perpendicular B'CB gives the angles 90° and 270°. The diagonals through C give the angles 45°, 135°, 225°, 315°. By stepping off chords equal to the radius, starting from A, the angles 60", 120°, 240°, &c., are obtained ; and, by starting at B, •the angles 30°, 150°, &c., are obtained. Only the points P, P' , . . ., on the circumference need be obtained as is shown in the third quadrant ; the radii are not needed for drawing the sine grajih. Step 3. Take a point as origin, some distance along the initial line, and, with a convenient scale, mark off abscissae to represent the angles 30°, 45°, 60°, &c., and, as far as space allows, mark off the negative abscissae. Stej) 4. Through the points on the circumference draw parallels to the initial line to cut the corresponding ordinates. These points of intersection are points on the graph. The ordinates of this graph* are proportional to the sines; if we divide by the radius, the actual values of the sines are found. The sine graph is shown on a larger scale in Fig. X. 19. The tangent graph. To obtain the ordinates for the tangent graph the radii must be produced to meet the tangent to * The giaph of the sine is a wavy or sinuous curve. Tlie name sine is therefore appropriate, although it is improbable that the originators of the name ever drew the graph. -.^ — __ _ — 7^ — 1 — _. / ? yt y 7^ y- ' t S I— * ^ i i \ :is. \, ^g S \ \ \ \ \ p J5 ~t / -»- -/- y i ± -7- it y I o r <5> \^ ' v . ^ - -- ^o ^ N ^ \ :;:: "::""\ -— o ._. ,^ 0> 4 7 ---- - ^ r- - -. - ^ ^ ^^ Ij;-- <-v:'^ ^^ ^^^ %-\ / A 7 , ;2;..^_^^_._/7 r< t..:-s\//.i:.\ ffl_-_ ^^^^ 5, ffl ^'lo ffi ^- V ^' / . :'7 " \: 7- - ,^r / -^ . i Z-_.

By means of the relations proved in the preceding sections, any expression containing trigonometrical functions can be put into a number of forms. It is a useful exercise to prove that two expressions, apparently different, are identical ; such exercises serve to fix the relations in the memory and lead to facility in dealing with trigonometrical expressions.

The introductory * if, or some similar conjunction, is vital to the logical statement of the work and must not be omitted. 25. Elimination. If two equations are satisfied by the same value of a single variable, there must be a relation connecting the constants of the equations ; this is also the case when n equations are satisfied by the same values of n—1 variables. In order to find this relation we eliminate the variable or variables. Example. Eliminate 6 from the equations si7i d = a, tan 6 = h.

In a similar way it is proved that sin ( — A) = tan ( — A) = The student should also work out the ratio of 90 + ^4, 180 + ^, 270-^, &c. 29. By means of the hist three sections the ratios of any angle can be expressed in terms of the ratios of an acute angle not greater than 45°. For example cos 139' = cos (180" - 41' j = - cos 4r, cos 246' = cos(-114'j = cos(114='j -cos(180'-6G") = -cos 66° = -cos (90' -24^) = -sin24^ 56 ELEMENTARY FORMULAE It is usually easy to work directly from the figure; thus in cos 246° = Fig. XV, where XOP = 246° and XOQ = 66°, (ON) OP OQ — cos 66° -sin 24°. Y N 1 Q K P 0/ X Fig. XY. 30. Ratios of 0° and 90°. If XOV =0,7' and A coincide ; so thnt XP = 0, OX = OP. Hence sin 0° = ^ - 0.

It follows that the triangle OPQ is equilateral. * The syml>nl x means 'infinity', i.e. a nnml;er greater than any number we can imagine. Consider the value of 1/x as x gets smaller and smaller, 1=10. 4 = 1000, .^j -_. 1000000, As X diminishes, 1/x increases, and, by making x suificiently small, We can make 1/x exceed any assigned value however great. This is expressed thus: when x = 0, 1/x = co . Or more generally, if a is a constant, then a/x = oo when x = 0. 58 ELEMENTARY FORMULAE Hence also 0^ Hence sin 30*^ cos 30° = ' tan 30° = Similarly sin 60° = OP.

ELEMENTARY FORMULAE 59 Then arc AP - rO, NP - r sin 0, AT = r tan ^. Hence Area of triangle AOP =^ lOA . NP = |7-2sin^; Ai-ea of sector AOP = \r^6; Area of triangle^ or =\OA.AT But, if ^OP is an acute angle, Triangle AOP < sector ^ OP < Triangle AOT, i e.

Fi-. XVIII. But, as the angle diminishes, these three lengths more and more nearly coincide ; and are practically indistinguishable when the angle is very small. This is shown in Fig. XVIII, which also shows that ON is indistinguishable from OA. Hence, when 6 is very small, there is very slight error in saying NP = arc AP = AT, and OiY = OA. 60 ELEMENTARY FORMULAE Substituting the trigonometrical values for the lengths of these lines, we have sin S = 6 = tan 6 and cos ^ = 1 , when 6, the circular measure of the angle, is small. This may also be expressed thus : The limit of or of ^^^ > when 6 is zero, is 1 ; or in symbols T sin ^ = . «i T tan <9 , ^ L —X- 1 an Jj -.- = 1.* 33. Error involved. Whatever be the value of ^, it has been shown that cos^^ + sin'^^ = 1. Using the above approximations, we have This last statement is true only when 6"^ is so small as to be negligible. Hence If ^ is so small that $- maybe neglected, we may say that sin S = e, cos ^ = 1, tan 6 = 0. It is shown in Higher Trigonometr}'- that sin i^' = ^ gives correct results if }r6^ is negligible. Example. // accuracy /.s required to four decimal places, find the sine of 1 degree. 1° = ToTj 77 radians = -01745 radian ■017452= -000295.

It has been shown in the previous chapters that the trigonometrical ratios of any angle may be foancl roughly by drawing to scale or by means of graphs. By methods which are explained in more advanced books on Trigonometry, the ratios can be calculated to any required degree of accuracy. There are many collections of tables published, containing not only the actual trigonometrical ratios (the natural functions as they are called) but also the logarithms of these ratios. These collections differ slightly in their arrangement, but the following general remarks apply to most of them. 35. Since any ratio of any angle is equal in magnitude to the same ratio of some angle less than 90°, it is necessary to tabulate the ratios only for angles between 0° and 90°. Thus sin 156° = sin (180° -24°) = sin 24°, cos 215° = cos (1.^0° + 35°) = - cos 35°. But the tables may be made even shorter, for any function of an angle between 45° and 90° is equal to the complementary function of an angle less than 45°. Thus sin 76° = sin (90° -14°) = cos 14°, ^ tan69°= tan(90°-21°) = cot21°. This fact is used in two different ways. Some tables give all the ratios for angles from 0° to 45° ; so that if, for instance, sin 72° is required, it must be looked up as cos 18°. Other tables give the values of sine, tangent, and secant for angles from 0°to 90° ; in this case, cosine, cotangent, and cosecant must be looked for as the si]ic, tangent, and secant respectively of the complementary angle. The slight mental work involved is avoided by giving each column a " footing " as well as a heading. Thus '26892 is, in some tables, found on a page headed Natural Sines, on a level with 15° in the extreme left hanl column and under 36', i.e. '26892 = sin 15°36'. USE OF TABLES 71 Bat the same page has Natural Cosines at the bottom, "26892 is on same level as 74° in the extreme right-hand column and above 24', i.e. -26892 = cos 74°24'. A few minutes' inspection will make the arrangement of any set of tables quite clear. 36. Logarithmic Functions. Since the sine and cosine cannot be greater than unity, their logarithms cannot be greater than zero ; hence these logarithms have a negative characteristic. In order to avoid difficulties of printing it has been the custom to add 10 to all these logarithms, and to the other logarithmic func- tions. The values thus tabulated are called Tabular Logarithms and are denoted in writing by L, thus L tan 75^ = log tan 75'' + 10. Some of the modern tables give the ordinary logarithms with the negative characteristics. When tabular logarithms are used it is advisable to sub- tract 10 mentally and to work with the correct logarithm. 37. Interpolation. It is impossible to give the ratios for all angles. Four-figure tables usually give values for every 6', seven- figure tables for every 1'. Intermediate values may, in some tables, be found from side columns giving the differences^ as in the case of ordinary logarithms. If these side columns are not given, the method of proportional parts * must be used. This method is equivalent to assuming that the graph of the tabulated function may be treated as a straight line for portions lying between the points corresponding to two consecutive tabulated values. The practical use is easily followed from an example or two. Example i. Given that sm28°9'.= -4717815, ami sin 28^ 10' = -4720380, find sm 28=^9' 43". sin 28^ 10' = -4720380, "000004275 x 43 sin28'' 9' = -4717815. '00017100 Increase for 60" = '0002565 ; 1282 Increase for 43" = |^ x '0002565 '00018382 = '0001838; sin 28" 9' 43" =-4719653. ^ For a fuller treatment see School Algclm, Part IT, p. 376. 72 USE OF TABLES In practice the zeros are omitted as in the following example. Example ii. Given that Zo^ cos 73° 15' = 1-4058617, and log cos 73^16' = 1*4053816, ^/j72cl the angle ivhen the log cosine is 1-4056348. Denote the angle hy 73° 15' x'\ - log cos 73° 15' = T-4058617. log cos 73= 15' - 1-4058617. log cos 73° 15' x" = T-4056348. log cos 73° 16' - 1-4053816. Decrease for £c" = 2269.

It is important to recollect that cosine, cotangent, cosecant, and their logarithms decrease as the angle in- creases ; consequently proportional differences must be suh- tr acted, not added. If the graphs of the functions are carefully drawn, it is seen that in some parts they approach much more nearly to straight lines than in others. It follows that the method of proportional parts is more accurate for some angles than for others. For a complete discussion of Proportional parts see Nixon's Elementary Plane Tngonometnj (Clarendon Press) or any advanced textbook. Examples IV a.

Use of Graph. Interpolation. The value of the function can be found for any intermediate value of the angle. From the graph it is seen that v/ = r07 when x = 50°, and y = 1'54 when x = 81°. Calculation shows that the correct values are 1'075 and 1*542 respectively. This is a useful method of testing the accuracy of a graph. Maximum and Minimum. When, as x increases, ij continually increases to a certain value and then decreases, that value is said to be a miaximum ; similarly, when j/ first decreases and then increases there is a minimum value. These maximum and minimum values are clearly shown on the graphs ; the corre- sponding points are called turning-points. From the graph the maximum value of 3 sin (.r + 30°) - 2 cos {x - 30°) is found to be 1*62, and the correi^ponding angle is OO"".

The graph shows that, when X changes from 15° to 30°, the increase in y is more than when x changes from 60° to 75°; consequently the curve is steeper between 15° and 30° than between 60° and 75°. Thus the rate at which y changes compared with x is shown by the steepness of the curve. Join two points P and Q on the graph, and draw PK, QK parallel to the axes to meet in K. Then increase in v/ KP , ■ n , i i nr^r.- ^ — i' = = tangent of the angle PQK increase in x QK = tangent of the angle PQ makes with the axis of x. This is called the slope of the line PQ. When Q approaches indefinitely near to P, the chord PQ becomes a tangent. Hence The rate of increase of y at the point P is measured by the slope of the tangent at the point P. Notice that the slope diminishes in the neighbourhood of a turning-point and is zero at the turning-point itself. 39. Solution of equations. By finding where two graphs intersect or where one graph intersects the axis of x or a line pai'allel to the axis, equations can be solved just as in Algebra. Example. Solve the equation 3 sm (a;-}- 30°) -2 cm- (a; -30°) - r5. It is seen in Fig. XIX that the graph cuts the line whose equation is ?/ = I'S where x = 77° and x = 120°. These are, therefore, the solutions within the range of the graph. Examples IV b. (The graphs should be verified in the way that the example of § 38 is verified.)

To solve a trigonometrical equation, (i) express all the ratios involved in terms of one ratio, (ii) find the value of tliis ratio by ordinary algebraical methods, (iii) find the angle from the tables, (iv) give the general solution. Example i. Solve 2 sin .r-f 3 cos a? = 2. Express in terms of sine, -^ + 3 V*! - sin^iP =2 — 2 sin x. Square 9 — 9 si n^ a; = 4 — 8 sin x + 4sin^ x. Transpose ISsin^aj-S sina7-5 = 0. Factorize (13 sin x + h) (sin x-\) = 0. .'. sin ^ = — j5 or 1. Substituting in the original equation, we find that : (i) If sin. r = — j%, cos^r = \'i = '9281. Hence the bounding line is in the fourth quadrant. From the tables it is found that cos 22° 37' = -9231. Hence the smallest positive angle satisfying the equation is 360"-22"37' = 337''2r. But we may add or subtract any multiple of 360° without altering the position of the bounding line ; hence any angle satisfies the equation whose value is 360° n + 337° 23', where n is any integer positive or negative. This is the general solution. (ii) If sin a; = 1, cos.^ = 0. The smallest solution is x = 90°. The general solution is 360°n + 90° or (4n + l)90°. Note. The same difficulty has arisen here tliat arises in Algebra when the original equation contains surds. After we have squared, the i-esulting equation is exactly the same as if we liad started with the equation 2 sin x — 3 cos x = 2. For this reason, after we found the value of sin 9, it was necessary to substitute in tlie original equation to find the corresponding value of cos x. SOLUTION OF EQUATIONS Example ii.

General solutions can always be obtained by mentally considering the possible positions of the radius vector that give angles having the same function as some angle already found. This is what has been done in the two preceding examples. It is, however, useful to know the formulae that give these general solutions. Find an expression for all angles that have a sine equal to sin oc. We have to solve sin 6 = sin a. Fig. XIX a. The bounding line may have either of the positions shown in Fig. XIX a. en 80 SOLUTION OF EQUATIONS Thus the line may revolve through n.r, where ii is even, and then go on CX, or may revolve through mr, where )i is odd, and th come back Oi. Hence ^ = n rr + 3c if n is even, or nrr — y if 71 is odd. These are included in the one formula e= 1177 + {-iyo(. If sin X = sin A, then x = ISO n 4 ( - 1 j" A. Exercises.

In the previous chapters we have had to deal with only one angle at a time, and have been able to draw one of the lines containing that angle horizontal. In applications of Trigonometry we often have to deal with several angles in the same example, and the lines containing them are drawn in various directions ; in such examples it would be difficult to apply the definitions of § 12. But it has been shown that the ratios of any angle can be expressed in terms of the ratios of an acute angle. In practice, therefore, it will often be found advisable to use the following definitions, which apply only to acute angles. In a right-angled triangle an acute angle is contained by the hypotenuse and one of the other sides which is called the side adjacent to that angle. The remaining side is called the side opposite. Then in Fig. XX 86 THE KIGHT-ANGLED TRIANGLE sin BAG = cos BAG = tan BAG = opposite hypotenuse ' adjacent hypotenuse ' opposite ^ adjacent ' cosec BAG = sec BAG cot BAG = hypotenuse opposite ' hypotenuse adjacent ' adjacent opposite These are clearly the same definitions as in § 12, the triangle BAC taking the place of the triangle PON; and the various formulae proved in Chap. Ill can be proved directly from the definitions of this section. 44. It is usual to denote the angles of any triangle ABC by the capital letters A, B, C; the lengths of the sides opposite the angles A, B, C are denoted by a, b, c respectively. Hence, in a triangle ABC, right-angled at C, a sin^ I.e. a = c sin A cos A = -, c tan^ &' i.e. b = ccos^ e. a = &tan^. Examples Va. 1. Prove, from the definitions of § 43, that (i) cos ^ = sin 2? = sin (90 — ^) ; (ii) sin A = cos B = cos (90 — ^) ; (iii) tan A = cotB = cot (90 - A.). 2. P N M Fig. XXI.

The length of BD when c = 76, B = 39°. 14. The length of CD when h = 114, C = 114°. (What geometrical fact does the negative sign in the result show ?) 15. Prove that the area of the triangle = i«& sin C; give the proof, also, when C is obtuse. Solution of Right-angled Triangles. 45. The angles and sides of a triangle are sometimes called the six parts of a triangle. The determination of all the parts, when only some of the parts are known, is called solving the triangle. If the triangle is known to be right- angled, the triangle can be solved if one side and one other part are known. Example i. A man, standinci 100 feet from the foot of a clmrelt stee2)le, finds that the inu/le* of elevation of the top * If a i)er.son is looking upwards, the angle Ins line of sight makes with the horizontal is the angle of elevation ; similar!}', if lie is look- ing downwards, the angle his line of sight makes with the horizontal is the angle of depression.

If the mirror now swings through an angle 1°, how far will the spot of light on the scale move ? Elementary Navigation. {The student sliould revise §§9 and 10 dealing with latitude and longitude and the points of the compass. [ 46. When a ship is sailing, the angle between its direction of sailing and the meridian the ship is crossing is called the course. If the course is constant, the ship is said to sail on a rhumb-line. The distance between two positions of the ship is then measured along the rhumb-line. The difference of latitude of two places is the arc of a meridian intercepted between the parallels of latitude passing through the two places. The departure ' between two meridians is the dis- Fig. XXVIII. tance between the two meridians measured along a parallel of lati- tude ; thus the departure between any two given meridians is not a constant but diminishes from the equator to the poles.* 47. A small portion of the earth's surface may be regarded as a plane ; for distances small, compared with the earth's radius, we may therefore use the formulae of Plane Trigonometry. Plane Sailing is the name given to that part of navigation which treats the surface of the eaith as a plane. On this assump- tion the meridians become parallel straight lines, the rhumb-line becomes the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle of which the departure is the side opposite to the course, and the difference of latitude is the side adjacent. Thus problems on Plane Sailing are merely examples in the solution of right-angled triangles. * In navigation distances are usually measured in nautical miles ; a nautical mile is the length of an arc of a meridian (or the equator) which subtends an angle of 1' at the centre of the eartli ; thus a distance of 75 nautical miles is usually written 75'.

It is known from Geometry that, if three parts of a triangle are given, the remaining parts can in some cases be found; and that, in other cases, relations between the missing parts may be found even though their exact values cannot be determined. When actual numbers are given, results can be obtained to a greater degree of accuracy by Trigonometrical methods than by drawing to scale. In all cases a formula is sought which shall contain the three given letters and one unknown letter. 61. Case I. Three angles given. The angle formula shows that A + B+C must be 180°. No formula contains the three angles and one side only ; but from the sine formula, viz. -. — - = -. — ., = -. — -, we can find the ratios sm ^-1 sin B sm C of the sides. 62. Case II. Two angles and one side given. The third angle can be found immediately since A + B+C= 180". Suppose a is the given side ; and it is required to find b. The formula must contain a, h, and two of the angles ; hence we use b _ a sin B sin A This is adapted for the use of logarithms as it involves no addition or subtraction. If the tables in use give the logarithms of the cosecant, it may be advisable to use the following logarithmic form log b = log a + log sin B + log cosec A. 63. Case III. One angle and the two sides containing the angle are given. Suppose a, b, C are the given parts. Then the cosine formula c^ = ci^ + b'^ — 2 ab cos C enables us to determine c. When c is 120 SOLUTION OF TRIANGLES determined, the remaining angles can be found by the sine formula. This method is of practical use only when the numbers involved are small ; the cosine formula is not adapted for the use of logarithms. It is usual, therefore, to use the formula proved in § 53,* viz. tan 1{A-B) = ^^ cot I C. This determines h{A—B)', also ^{A + B) equals the complement of I C; hence A and B are found by adding and subtracting. The value of c is then calculated by the sine formula. 64. Case IV. One angle and the two sides not containing the angle are given. Suppose a, h, A are given. Then we can determine c from the formula a^ = b'^ + c'^ — 2bc cos A. This is a quadratic equation to determine c, and it is seen that there is the possibility of two distinct values for c. This is also seen from the geometrical construction. On this account this case is usually known as the Ambiguous Case. If there are two values of c, there will be two values for B and for C. This is seen independently if the sine formula is used (as it usually is, on account of its adaptability for logarithms) : sin B _ sin A b a Suppose that this leads to the result sin B = sin x. Then B = x or 180 -ic. This shows that, if there are two solutions, those two solutions are supplementary. Hence one of the solutions will be obtuse. Preliminary geometrical considerations often show that there can be only one solution. (i) If the given angle A is not acute, then B must be acute and the obtuse-angled solution must be rejected. (ii) If a>b or = h, then A> B or = B; consequently B cannot be obtuse. Exercises. When a, b, A are given, show (i) from the geo- * Another proof is given on p. 103. SOLUTION OF TKIANGLES 121 metrical solution, (ii) from the cosine formula, (iii) from the sine formula, that (a) there is no solution, if a<h sin A ; (6) there is one solution only, if a = & sin ^ ; (c) there are two solutions, if a>68in^ but < &; [d) there is one solution only, if « > &. Point out the difference in nature of the one solution in {h) and [d). 65. Case V. Three sides given. Here again the cosine formula may be used, if the numbers involved are not inconveniently large. For logarithmic calcula- tion the formula for sin^^, cos|^, or tan|^l is used. These half-angle formulae are derived from the cosine formula. 2bin2M = l-co8^1* (§51) ~~ 2bc 2 he {a — b + c){a + b-c) ainiA- j (s-b)(B-c) srn.A-^ 2 Similarly cos ^ A = \ ~^ — ' Divide tan^A=J^^:^l^ ^ \ s(s-a) Of these three formulae it is best to use the tangent formula ; for the logarithms used in finding tan 4 A are the same as those required for finding tan i B or tan I C. If only one angle lias to be found, it is indifferent which formula is used. There is a simple geometrical proof for tan \ A. * In old books on Trigonometry the ' haversinc ' was used for solving triangles, and the values of log haversinc were tabulated in mathematical tables. The haversinc equals half the versed sine ; hence haversin -4 = J versin A = (1 — cos^)-^2 = sin^ \ A. The for- mula for solution of the triangle then becomes havei'sin A = (s—b) (s — c)-T-bc. 122 SOLUTION OF TRIANGLES In Fig. XXXVIII / is the centre of the inscribed circle, £" is the point of contact of the circle with AC.

First a figure must be drawn, not necessarily to scale ; the known lengths and angles should be indicated in the figure. It may be necessary to solve, or partly solve, more than one triangle before the required measurement is found. The scheme for working should be carefully thought out before the work is actually begun. Example i. Wishing to find the height of a house standing on the summit of a hill of uniform slope, I descended the hill for 40 feet, and then found the height subtended an angle of 34° 18'.

CHAPTEE VIII PROJECTION. VECTOES Fi-. XLIV. 67. If from the extremities of u line FQ, of definite length, perpendiculars PK, QL are let fall on a line AB, which may be produced if necessary, then KL is called the Projection of PQ on the line AB. Projections are subject to the same convention of sign as are abscissae and ordinates. Thus, in the above figure, KL is positive, but LK is negative. It follows that the projec- tion of PQ is not the same as the ^ projection of QP, so that the order of the letters in naming a line is of great importance when we are dealing with projection. When the direction of the line is to be taken into account as well as its length, it is called a directed length ; and we shall, in future, use the symbol {PQ) * to denote the directed length of the line from Pto Q. The number of unit> of length in that line we shall continue to denote by the symbol I'Q. Thus, in Fig. XLIY, the projection of (PQ) is (KL), and the projection of [QP) is {LK). Note. When we speak of the sum of directed lengths in the same straight line, tlie algebraical sum is always meant. Geometrically this means that we require the directed length between the starting- point and final point, and not the length of the actual path traversed. 68. If the length of PQ is I, and if 6 is the angle between PQ and the line AB, then projection of {PQ) on AB = I cos 0. This is usually written PQ. 140 PROJECTION. VECTORS Some care is necessary in applying this formula ; the safest plan is to keep ? and 6 both positive. Consider, for instance, the projection of {QP) in Fig. XLV. Imagine a line drawn from the initial point Q parallel to the line AB. Then it is seen that the angle between {QP) and AB is 6 + IT, while the length ^Pis I. Hence projection of {QP) on AB = lcos{d + 7r) = -I cos 6, Two other methods of treatment give the same result. A B Fig. XLV. In Fig. XLV the line QX is actually drawn parallel to AB ; but it is usually sufficient to imagine it. Then we may take the angle between (QP) and QX to be the negative angle XQP, i. e. — (n — 6); the length ^Pis positive so that projection of QP = lcos{ — Tr — 6) = — Zcos d. Or we may regard 6 as being the angle between {QP) and QX ; but this requires that the length of {QP) should be taken as —I, and so the projection of (QP) on AB = -/cos d. It will be found that, in all cases, I cos gives both the magnitude and sign of the projection of (PQ) on AB. Similarly, the projection of (PQ) on a line perpendicular to AB = I sin 6, 69.

In either of tbe above figures (or in any other figure) projection of (.45) + projection of (BC) = {ah) + {hc) = {ac) = projection of {AC). Proposition B. The sum of the projections on any line of the three sides {AB), {BC), {CA) of a triangle is zero. Sum of projections of iAB), iBC), {CA) = {ah) + (be) + (ca).

PQR is a triangle right-angled at Q, having the angle at P equal to A' ; FQ is inclined to OX at an angle B^. Prove by projection that cos {A + B) = cos A cos B — sin A sin B, and sin (A + B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B. 70. If the projections of a line on two lines at right angles are given, the length and direction of the projected line can be found, but not its actual position. Let r be the length of the line and the angle it makes with one of the lines of projection. Then r cos S and rsin 6 are known ; suppose these values are x and y respectively, so that >'cos^ = x and rsin 6 = ij. Then r = a/x- + i/- and tan 6 = y/x. The projected line has therefore a definite length and a definite direction ; it is the simplest example of a group of quantities called vector quantities or vectors. 71. A quantity which possesses a direction as well as magnitude is called a vector. Yelocities and forces are examples of such quantities. The magnitude and direction can be represented by the length and direction of a directed straight line ; hence the properties of a directed straight line that depend only on its length and direction represent properties common to all vectors. 144 PROJECTION. VECTORS 72. Vector addition or Composition of Vectors. A displacement from A to B followed by a displacement from B to C produces the same result as a single displacement from ^to a B Fig. XLVIir. Or we may regard the displacements as being simultaneous. Suppose a point to start from A and move along AB, and while this point is moving, suppose the line AB to move parallel to itself, the point B moving to C while the point travels from A to B. The result of the two simultaneous displacements is that the point has travelled from A to C. Hence the vector (AC) is called the resultant of the vectors (AB) and (BC). Finding one quantity equivalent to two or more of the same kind is equivalent to the process of addition in Arithmetic. If we use the sign + to denote this process, we have {AC) = {AB) + {BC). If P, Q, and R are the respective magnitudes of the vectors represented by {AB\ {BC), and {AC), and if 6 is the angle between the directions of {AB) and {BC) (in Fig. XL VIII the angle ABC is the supplement of 6) ; then 112 ^ P2 + Q2 + 2 PQ cos 6. Similarly, if a number of vectors are represented by the directed lengths {AB), {BC), {CD)...{HK), then their resultant is repre- sented by the directed length {AK). 73. Besolution of vectors. In Fig. XLVIII the vector {AG) may be replaced by the two vectors (AB) and {BC). Viewed in this light they are called the components of the vector (AC). PROJECTION. VECTORS 145 When we talk of the component of a vector in a given direction, and no mention is made of the direction of the other component, it is understood that the other component is at right angles to the first. P Fig. XLIX. If (OP) in Fig. XLIX represents a vector of magnitude E inclined at an angle 6 to OX, then its projection {OX) represents the component along OX, and the projection (XP) represents the component perpendicular to OX. The vector is now said to be resolved along and perpendicular to OX. Resolving along OX, we find that the component is Rcosd. Resolving peqDendicular to OX, we find that the component is Psin^. 74. All the work of § 69 on projections can be applied to vectors and their components. For instance, Proposition C gives the following proposition : The sum of the components of any number of vectors in a given direction is equal to the component of their resultant in that direction. Examples VIII b. [In the following examples the letters P, Q, R imply that the vectors are forces ; the letters u, v, w imply that the vectors are velocities.

If from every point in a line, atniight or curved, a perpen- dicular be let fall on a plane, the locuj; of the feet of the perpendiculars is called the projection of the line on the plane. If from every point in the boundary of a surface a perpendicular be let fall on a plane, the area bounded by the locus of the feet of the perpendiculars is called the projection of the surface on the plane. 76. The angle between a straight line and its projection on a plane is called the angle between the straight line and the plane. It follows that the projection on a plane of a straight line of length I, making an angle a with the plane, is I cos (X. Any two planes, not parallel, intersect in a straight line. If from any point P in this line two perpendiculars FA, PB are drawn to it, one in each plane, then the angle APB measures the angle between the planes. 77. If any plane surface, of area A, is projected on a plane making an angle a with its own plane ; then the area of the projection is A cos ol. *Step I. Consider a rectangle ABCD, having the side AB parallel to the plane of projection, and the side BC making an angle 0( with that plane ; then y is the angle between the plane of the rectangle and the plane of projection. Then, in Fig. L, abed is the projection of ABCD. D Fig. L. * A slight knowledge of solid geometry is assumed lu this proof. k2 148 PROJECTION.

Then in the area we can inscribe a number of rectangles having the short sides parallel to PQ and the longer sides perpendicular to PQ. Fig. LI. The sum of these rectangles is less^than the original area, but may be made to differ from that area by as small a quantity as we please by making their width small enough ; and then the sum of their projec- tions will differ from tlie projection of the area by an even smaller quantity.

If now [OA) is turned through two right angles, it takes up the position {OA') and, by the usual convention, {OA') represents - r. Hence the 150 PROJECTION. VECTORS geometrical operation of turning through two right angles repre- sents the algebraical operation of multiplying by -1. Let us consider what the operation of turning through one right angle represents. This is an operation which, if performed twice in succession, turns through two right angles, which represents multiplica- tion by — 1. But the algebraical operation of multiplying by aZ-I, if performed twice in succession, multiplies by —1. Hence it seems reasonable that the operation of turning a vector line through a right angle represents the algebraical operation of multiplying by \/-l ; that is, (OB) at right angles to (OA) represents r x V^— 1, i.e. -%/ — Ir. In future we shall denote \/—l by /. 79. With the interpretation of i suggested by the last section, cc + ii/ is represented by a vector line of length or followed by a vector line of length y at right angles to the first vector. X + iy ^ {0N)+ (NP) (Fig. LIII.) = (OP). (By vector addition, § 72.) Or, in words, or + iy is represented by the vector (OP), that is by a vector line of length >v/.r^ + f/^, with the positive direction. laking an angle tan"' 80. For our purjioses this statement is more useful if reversed, VIZ. (OP) =^ x + iy = }'cos6+ ir Bin 6 = (cos ^ + 1 sin B) r. PEOJECTIO^\ VECTORS 151 Or, in words, the vector line of length r, in direction ^, repre- sents the magnitude r multiplied by cos ^ + /sin ^. This gives the important result that turning through an angle 6 represents multiplication by cos^ + j sin^. Hence turning twice in succession through d represents multipli- cation by cos ^ + /sin B repeated twice ; i.e. turning through 26 represents multiplication ly (cos + / sin 6f ; but turning through 2 d represents multiplication by (cos2^ + /sin2^). Hence the suggested interpretation of -y/— 1 or /, leads to the identity fcos 26+ i sin 2 ^) = (cos ^ + j sin 6)-. If this is verified by algebraic multiplication and by the use of the ordinary formulae for cos 2^ and sin 2^, it will be found correct. Carrying on the argument in the same way, we deduce that (cos 7id + i sin n 6) = (cos 6 + i sin 6)'\ where n is any positive integer. Again, turning through a half 6 is an operation which, if re- peated, turns through 6, and, therefore, represents a multiplication which, if repeated, multiplies by cos 6 + / ?in 6 ; • Le.

VECTORS We have now clediiced from the geometrical interpretation of \/-l. that (cosn^ + isinn^) = (cos ^ + i sin ^)" for all real values of n. This is known as De Moivre's Theorem. Example.

Let OX be the initial line ; and let the revolving line first turn, through the angle A to the position OA and then continue to turn through an additional angle B to the position OB. Then OB is the bounding line of the angle A + B. Along OB measure a length OP=r units. Project OP on the initial line, produced backwards if necessary also project OP on OA, produced backwards if necessary. Figures LIV and LV show two of the many possible cases. 156 FORMULAE FOR FUNCTIONS OF THE SUM In all cases the projection of (OP) on OX = sum of the projections of (OK) and (KP) on OX ; i.e. rcos{A + B) = (OK) cos A + {KP) cos (^ + 90) = r cos B cos A + r sin B { — sin A). . Hence cos (A + B) = cos ^ cos £ — sin A sin B. * Several proofs of this have already been given, but the earlier proofs have implied that A and B are together less than two right angles ; this proof applies whatever be the values of A and B.

Whatever way it is taken, the projection of {OK) on OA' is found to be r cos £ cos A. OK DIFFEEENCE OF TWO ANGLES 15' 82. The followinrr proof does not involve any knowledge of projection ; its chief drawback is that it applies only to the case when A + B is less than a right angle. It is easily modified to suit any other given case. Let XOA = A and AOB ^ B ; then XOB = A + B, and in Fig. L VI is less than 90°.

Now angle LPK = 90° - LKP = LKO = A ; therefore LK PK = sin A. Hence cos (A + B) = cos A cos B - sin A sin B. From the same figure, prove that s'm(A + B) = To find the functions of A—B, the angle AOB must be made on the negative side of OA.

Sums and difi'erences of sines or cosines ex- pressed as products. These formulae are most easily derived from the formulae of § 81, as suggested in Examples IX «. They can be proved inde- l)endently by projection. Make the angle XOA = .1 and the angle XOB = B.* On OA and OB take lengths OP, OQ respectively, each equal to r units. Join PQ. B Fig. LVII. Fig. LVIII. Bisect the angle QOP by a line cutting PQ at R. Then the angles BOP, ROQ each equal 1{A-B) ; and the angle XOP = l{A + B). From congruent triangles EP = RQ, and PRO is a right angle. The projection of (OP) = sum of projections of (OR) and (RP), and the projection of (0^; = sum of projections of (02?) and (RQ). * Notice the difference between tbi> construction and tbc construc- tion of § 81. 160 FORMULAE FOR SUM OR DIFFERENCE OF .•. projection of ( OP j + projection of (0^)^*2'^ projection of (OR), since projections of {HP) and (BQ) are equal but opposite. Projecting on a line perpendicular to OX, we have r sin A + r sin B = 2'^'' the projection of {OB). But {OR) is the projection of {OP) on the direction OR, i.e. {OR) = rco&\{A-B). rsin^ + rsin J5 = 2rco&\{A-B)^m\{A + B). Hence sin ^ + sin £ = 2 sin ^ (^ + B) cos \{A-B). From the same figure, by projection on OX, we have cos^ + cosjB = 2cos|(^ + jB)cos^(^-jB). Again, projection of (OP) -projection of (0$) = 2^^ projection of {RP). Hence sin^ — sin P = 2 cos | (A + P) sin \{A — B), cos^-cosP= -2sin|(^-P)sin J(^ + P). The proofs apply to all cases whatever be the magnitudes of A and P. The reason for the negative sign in the last of these formulae is obvious, for, if A> B, then cos A < cos P. It is useful to learn the formulae in words, it being understood in all cases that the greater angle is put first. sine + sine = 2 sine half sum cos half difference. 84. Products of sines and cosines expressed as sums or differences. In the formulae of the last section put i(^ + P) = X, \{A-B)=Y', so that A^X+Y, B = X-Y. Then sin(X+ r) + sin {X- Y) = 2 sin X cos Y, i. e. 2 sin X cos Y = sin {X+ F) + sin(X- Y). Similar results are obtained from the other formulae. If we replace X by ^ and Y by P, the formulae become 2 sin ^ cos P = sin (.1 + P) + sin (.1 - P), 2 cos .1 sin B = sin (.1 + P) - sin (.1 - P), 2 cos.l cos P = cos {A + P) -f cos {A - B), 2 sin A sin P ^ cos (.1 - P) - cos {A + P). These are more easily proved direct from the A-vB and A—B formulae. FUNCTIONS OF TWO ANGLES 161 In using these formulae it is usual (but not necessary) to put the greater angle first ; this shows why there are distinct formulae for 2 sin .4 cos i? and 2 cos .4 sin i?. Express the four formulae in words : Twice sine cos = sin sum + sin difference. Examples IX b. 1.

It lias already been shown in § 51 that sin 2 ^ = 2 sin A cos A; cos 2A = co&'^A - sin^^ = l-2sin2^ = 2jiQsM-l. , The proof there given assumed that 2 J. is less than 180°. If we put A instead of B in the A + B formulae the same results are obtained ; thus they are true for all values of ^. The results can easily be proved independently by projection ; the proofs are the same as in § 81, A taking the place of B. 86. From the last section, by putting -^^ in place of A, we have cos'* ^A — sin'^ -| J. = cos A ; also cos'^^^ + sin^^ J. = 1. Add 2cos^i^ = l + cosX Subtract 2 sin^ ^A = 1- cos A. Hence cos^^ = + Kv^l + cos^) ; sin|^= +|(-v/l -cos^). If the value of A is given, there is no ambiguity of sign. If, for instance, A = 140°, then ^A = 70°, and the sine and cosine are both positive; if ^ = 264°, then -^.4 = 132°, and the sine is positive, the cosine negative. If the value of cos^ is given but not the value of A, the ambiguity cannot be removed. Suppose cos .4 = ^, then A may have any value of the form 360° n ± 60°.

The preceding formulae load to a number of useful identities in the cases where A + B + C=90° or 180". The method of dealing with these is shown in the following illustrative examples.

IA + 1{B+ C) = 90. Hence tan |(5+ C) = tan (90 -M) = cotj^. b — c Substituting above, tan ^(-B - C) = cot ^A. This formula has been proved geometrically in § 53 ; it is usually proved by the method given above. Example ii. In any triangle ^^~~cUS^-\-€o^^ + cosC = 1 + 4 sin i A sin J B sin i C. L.H.S. = cos J. + cos^ + cos C = 2 cos * (^ + jB) cos 1 U - -B) + 1 - 2 sin^ -i C = 2sin|Ccosi(^-5) + l-2sin|Ccos^(^ + J5), since ^C = %-l{A + B) = l + 2sin|C(cosi^-^-cos^^ + ^) = l+4sin|^sin^5sin"?C. The symbol 2 cos A is sometimes used to denote cos^ + cos5 + cos C; and nsin^ to denote sin ^ sin 5 sin C. The above result can be written: 2 cos^ = 1 4-4nsin^^. 168 VARIOUS ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLES Example iii. In any triangle ^cos'^A = l — 2Yicos A. (Questions involving the sum of the squares of sines or cosines are usually solved by expressing these squares in terms of the cosine of the double angle.) 2 2 cosM = 2 cos2 A + 2 cos'^B + 2 cos^ C = 1 + cos 2^ + 1 + cos 25 + 2 cos^ C. (Note that one angle is left unchanged.) .-. 2 cos^^ = 1 + cos (^ + B) cos (A-B) + cos^ C = 1 - cos C cos (^-5) -cos Ccos (A + B), since C= 180 -(^ + 5) = 1 - cos C [cos {A ~ B)-cos(A + B)] = 1—2 cos Acqs B cos C.

MATHEMATICAL MASTER, MERCERs' SCHOOL AUTHOR OF 'SCHOOL ALGEBRa/ 'ELEMENTARY TRIGONO.METRY ' OXFORD: AT THE CLARENDON PRESS LONDON: HENRY FROWDE, AMEN CORNER, E.C. AXD AT EDINBURGH, GLASGOW, NEW YORK, TORONTO AND MELBOURNE OXFORD : HOKACE HAET TRINTER TO THE UNIVERSITY These five-figure tables are intended to give results correct to four figures ; tlie fifth figure in tlie answer may be inaccurate. The decimal point is printed before all the logarithms of numbers ; it is hoped that this will obviate the common mistake of reading off logarithms instead of antilogarithms, and vice -versa. The trigonometrical tables are arranged so that, at one opening of the tables, all the functions of an angle may be found on the left-hand page and their logarithms on the right-hand page ; here again confusion is avoided. The characteristics of the logarithmic functions are the true characteristics ; no useful purpose is served by increasing them by 10. It should be noticed that, instead of dividing by a sine, one may multiply by the cosecant, &c., and, similarly, instead of subtracting the logarithm of a sine, one may add the logarithm of the cosecant, &c. In many cases this shortens calculation. For quick reference the last page may be used, which gives the trigonometrical functioas, to four figures only, for every whole degree up to 90° and the corresponding circular measure to five figures.

Intermediate values can be found by n method of proportional parts ; e. g. : — To find tan 43° 56' and cos 37° 34' tan 43° 5o'= -96008 cos 37° 3°'= 79335 1 + diff. for 6'= 337 -diff. for4'=- 71 f .-. tan 43° 5^'= -96345 ••• cos 37° 34'= -79264 When there is no entry in the difference column, the value of the function char too rapidly for correct interpolation by proportional parts. C4reater accuracy is t obtained by expressing the function in terms of the sine and cosine. To find tan 67° 23' tan 67° 20'= 2-39449 Diff. for 10' = 1972 by proportional parts, diff. for 3'= 592 This gives tan 67° 23'= 2-40041. (The correct value is 2-40038.)

Differences are given for every lo'. Intermediate values can be found by the method of proportional parts. The differences for the logarithm of a function and of the reciprocal of the function are the same in magnitude but opposite in sign. When there is no entry in the difference column, the rate of change of the logarithm changes too rapidly for correct interpolation by proportional parts. The following rules may be used when the angle is small : — Log sine. Add &6S$S7 to the log of the angle expressed in seconds and subtract ^ of^tlie log secant. Log tan. Add 6-68557 to the log of the angle expressed in seconds and add ^ of the log secant. When the log sine is given, the angle is found in seconds by adding 5-31443 to the log sine and ^ of the corresponding log secant (found in the ordinary way). When the log tan is given, the angle is found in seconds by adding 5*31443 to the log tan and subtracting | of the corresponding log secant (found in the ordinary way).
