Sine and Cosine Ratios GEOMETRY LESSON 9-2

A 20-ft. wire supporting a flagpole forms a 35˚ angle with the flagpole. To the nearest foot, how high is the flagpole? The flagpole, wire, and ground form a right triangle with the wire as the hypotenuse. Because you know an angle and the measures of its adjacent side and the hypotenuse, you can use the cosine ratio to find the height of the flagpole. height cos 35° = 20

height = 20 • cos 35°

35

16.383041

Use the cosine ratio. Solve for height.

Use a calculator.

The flagpole is about 16 ft tall.

A right triangle has a leg 1.5 units long and hypotenuse 4.0 units long. Find the measures of its acute angles to the nearest degree. Draw a diagram using the information given. Use the inverse of the cosine function to find m A. 1.5

cos A = 4.0 = 0.375

Use the cosine ratio.

m A = cosâ€“1(0.375)

Use the inverse of the cosine.

(continued)

To find m B, use the fact that the acute angles of a right triangle are complementary. m A + m B = 90 68 + m B

90

m B

Definition of complementary angles Substitute.

The acute angles, rounded to the nearest degree, measure 68 and 22.
