What is all sin tan cos rule?
All sin tan cos rule is all trigonometrical ratios in the first quadrant, only sin (and cosec) in the second quadrant, only tan (and cot) in the third quadrant and only cos (and sec) in the fourth quadrant are positive.
We know the signs of trigonometrical ratios are:
(i) When the θ
lies in the first quadrant: All
trigonometrical ratios of the angle θ are positive.
(ii) When the θ
lies in the second quadrant: Only sin θ, csc θ
are positive and the rest are negative.
(iii) When the θ
lies in the third quadrant: Only tan θ and cot θ
are positive and the rest are negative
(iv) When the θ
lies in the fourth quadrant: Only cos θ and sec θ are
positive and the rest are negative.
Therefore, the above rule for the signs of trigonometrical ratios is also known “all, sin, tan, cos” rule.
1. The relations of all the trigonometrical ratios of a positive acute angle and angle θ can either be positive or negative.
2. The values of sin θ cannot be greater than 1 i.e., -1 ≤ sin θ ≤ 1
3. The values of cos θ cannot be greater than 1 i.e., -1 ≤ cos θ ≤ 1
4. The values of sec θ cannot be less than 1 i.e., sec Ѳ ≥ 1 or sec θ ≤ -1
5. The values of csc θ cannot be less than 1 i.e., csc θ ≥ 1 or csc θ ≤ -1
6. Tan θ and cot θ can have any real values.
