Trigonometry (advanced)

Welcome to the only place where the trigonometric values on unit circle is properly connected to the trigonometric ratios of right-triangles.

 •  The trigonometric ratios of right-triangles are defined as -- "The right-triangles having a given angle are similar. The ratio of sides for those right-triangles is a known constant".

 •  The trigonometric values on unit-circle are defined as -- "The representative similar triangle is taken in unit-circle with hypotenuse 1. The trigonometric ratios become into the horizontal and vertical projections.".

The details explained are ingenious and found nowhere else.

The trigonometric values for all quadrants and for compound angles are also covered.

First Quadrant Equivalent of Trigonometric Values

For angles in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quadrants, can trigonometric ratios be equivalently given as a trigonometric ratio of acute angle in 1st quadrant? In doing so, the sign and the complementary trigonometric ratios are to be appropriately matched.
