EQ: How do I use trigonometry in real-life application problems?

Angles of Elevation and Depression

4. A closed circuit television camera is mounted on a wall 7.4 feet above a

security desk in an office building. It is used to view an entrance door 9.3 feet

from the desk. Find the angle of depression from the camera lens to the

entrance door.

Trigonometry and 3-D Figures

EQ: How do you find trigonometric ratios to find

unknown sides and angles in 3-D figures?

9. In the triangular prism, find DF and the angle AFD.

10. All edges of a square-based pyramid are 10 cm in length. Find the angle between the slant edge and a

base diagonal.

11. Find the angle between QW and the base of the 3-D figure.

12. Find the angle PV makes with QV.

13. A symmetric square-based pyramid has base lengths of 6cm and

height of 8cm as shown. Find the measure of the face TQR and the base

Areas of Triangles

EQ: How do you find the area of a triangle using

trigonometry?

Review

What happens if you don’t know the height???

There are some cases where you don’t need the height to find the

What happens if you don’t know the height???

There are some cases where you don’t need the height to find the

area…You have two sides and the

included angle

Labeling a TriangleIf you have a triangle ABC with

angles A, B, C the sides opposite these angles are a, b, c

Formula for the Area of a Triangle when you have 2 sides and the

included angle.

The area of triangle is half of the product of two sides and the sine

of the included angle
