  2. Serial order wise


Example 12 Express the ratios cos A, tan A and sec A in terms of sin A. cos A Since, cos2 A + sin2 A = 1 cos2 A = 1 – sin2 A cos A = ±√(1 βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›2 𝐴) Here, A is acute (i.e. less than 90Β°) & cos A is positive when A is acute So, cos A = √(1 βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›2 𝐴) sec A sec A = 𝟏/πœπ¨π¬β‘γ€– 𝑨〗 sec A = 1/√(1 βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›2 𝐴) tan A We know that tan A = π’”π’Šπ’β‘γ€– 𝑨〗/𝒄𝒐𝒔⁑〖 𝑨〗 Putting value of cos A tan A = sin⁑〖 𝐴〗/√(1 βˆ’ 𝑠𝑖𝑛2 𝐴)
