PROVING TRIGONOMETRIC IDENTITIES WORKSHEET WITH SOLUTIONS

(1) Determine whether each of the following is an identity or not.

(i) cos2θ + sec2θ  =  2 + sinθ     

(ii) cot2θ + cosθ  =  sin2θ   

Solution

(2) Prove the following identities

(i) sec2θ + cosec2θ  =  sec2θcosec2θ        Solution

(ii) sinθ/(1 - cosθ)  =  cosecθ + cotθ       Solution

(iii) (1 - sinθ)/(1 + sinθ)  =  secθ - tanθ    Solution

(iv) cosθ/(secθ - tanθ)  =  1 + sinθ        Solution

(v) √(sec2θ + cosec2θ)  =  tanθ + cotθ      Solution

(vi) (1 + cosθ - sin2θ)/(sinθ)(1 + cosθ)  =  cotθ 

Solution

(vii) secθ(1 - sinθ)(secθ + tanθ)  =  1      Solution  

(viii) sinθ/(cosecθ + cotθ)  =  1 - cosθ      Solution

(3) Prove the following identities

(i) [sin(90 - θ)/(1 + sinθ)] + [cosθ/(1 - (cos(90 - θ))]

=  2secθ       Solution

(ii) tanθ/(1 - cotθ) + cotθ/(1 - tanθ)  =  1 + secθ cosecθ  

Solution

(iii) sin(90 - θ)/(1 - tanθ) + cos(90 - θ)/(1 - cotθ) 

=  cosθ + sinθ      Solution

(iv) [tan(90 - θ)/(cosecθ + 1)] + [(cosecθ + 1)/cotθ)]

=  2secθ       Solution

(v) (cotθ + cosecθ - 1)/(cotθ - cosecθ + 1) 

=  cosecθ + cotθ    Solution

(vi) (1 + cotθ - cosecθ)(1 + tanθ + secθ)  =  2        Solution

(vii) (sinθ - cosθ + 1)/(sinθ + cosθ - 1)  =  1/(secθ-tanθ) 

Solution

(viii) tanθ/(1 - tan2θ) = sinθsin(90 - θ)/[2sin2(90 - θ) - 1]  

(ix) [1/(cosecθ - cotθ)] - (1/sinθ) 

=  [(1/sinθ)] - [1/(cosecθ + cotθ)]             Solution

(x) (cot2θ  + sec2θ)/(tan2θ + cosec2θ)

=  sinθ cosθ(tanθ + cotθ)        Solution

(4) If x = a sec θ + b tan θ and y = a tan θ + b sec θ then prove that

x2 - y2  =  a2 - b2          Solution
