Compound Angle Formulae


New Topic: Compound Angle Formulae, MiA Unit 2 Ch3

By the end of this topic you will be able to:

• know and apply the addition formulae:
sin(A+B) = sinAcosB + cosAsinB
sin(A–B)  = sinAcosB – cosAsinB
cos(A+B) = cosAcosB – sinAsinB
cos(A–B) = cosAcosB + sinAsinB

• know and apply the double angle formulae:
sin2A  = 2sinAcosA
cos2A = cos2A – sin2A = 2cos2A – 1

• apply trigonometric formulae in solution of geometric problems

• solve trigonometric equations using compound angle formulae
