TRIGONOMETRIC IDENTITIES Sum of Two Angles Sin (A+B) = SinA CosB + CosA SinB Cos (A+B) = CosA CosB – SinA SinB Tan (A+B) =
TanA + TanB 1 − TanA TanB

ELEMENTS OF A TRIANGLE Median, line drawn from the vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side. Centroid, the common point where all Medians of the triangle intersect. Altitude, a perpendicular line drawn from the vertex of a triangle to the opposite side. Orthocenter, the point where all Altitudes of the triangle intersect. Angle Bisector, line drawn from one vertex of a triangle to the opposite side by bisecting the included angle between two sides. Incenter, the point where all Angle Bisectors of a triangle intersects.
ALTITUDE OF A TRIANGLE is a perpendicular from any vertex to the opposite side. ANGLE is the opening between two straight lines drawn from a point. APOTHEM of a polygon is the radius of its inscribed circle. CENTER OF POLYGON of a regular polygon is the common center of the inscribed and circumscribed circle. CONCURRENT LINES are three or more line which have one point in common. DIAGONAL of a polygon is a line connecting 2 non-adjacent vertices of the polygon.
Any Quadrilateral A = ½ d1 d2 sin θ A = √(s − a)(s − b)(s − c)(s − d) − abcd cos2 θ Where s = (a+b+c+d)/2 θ = (A+C)/2 or (B+D)/2 Cyclic Quadrilateral A = √(s − a)(s − b)(s − c)(s − d) A+C = B+D = 180O Ptolemy’s Theorem: ac + bd = d1 d2
