Solving a system of equations (substitution)

• Step 1: Solve one of the equations for one of the variables

• Step 2: Substitute what the variable equals in the solved equation into the other equation

• Step 3: Solve the second equation (which should now only have one variable)

• Step 4: Plug in the solution from step 3 to one of the original equations to solve for the other variable

Trigonometry (Introduction)

• In a right triangle, the ratios of sides in relation to an angle are described using trigonometric ratios

• The ratios are sine, cosine, and tangent

• Sine = opposite side divided by hypotenuse

• Cosine = adjacent side divided by hypotentuse

• Tangent = Opposite side divided by adjacent side
