In these worksheets, students will learn to solve trigonometric equations.

A trigonometric equation is any equation that contains a trigonometric function. When we talk about geometry and specifically about solving triangles for missing sides, angles, or even finding the areas, we are dealing with some problems that will need trigonometric equations. It is one of the most important branches of mathematics and can be used to effectively solve triangles. So, what are they anyway? Okay, so what are trigonometric functions. Well, there are three basic trigonometric functions and these include; sin⁡α=Opposite/Hypotenuse, cos⁡α =Adjacent/Hypoenuse, tan⁡α =(Opposite )/Adjacent. To solve equations containing trigonometric functions, you need to find the value of the angles that satisfy the equation.

In these worksheets, given a set of values, students will solve trigonometric equations. There are 6 worksheets in this set. Some students may find they require extra paper in order to have room to do their calculations. A sound understanding of the basic principles of trigonometry is required in order for students to be successful with these worksheets. This set of worksheets contains lessons, step-by-step solutions to sample problems, both simple and more complex problems, a review, and a quiz. It also includes ample worksheets for students to practice independently. Most worksheets contain between eight and ten problems. When finished with this set of worksheets, students will be able to solve these types of exercises. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided.
