Fundamental Identities
Quotient and reciprocal identities
  • \tan(x)=\frac{\sin(x)}{\cos(x)}
  • \cot(x)=\frac{\cos(x)}{\sin(x)}=\frac{\csc(x)}{\sec(x)}=\frac{1}{\tan(x)}
  • \sec\theta=\frac{1}{\cos(x)}
  • \csc\theta=\frac{1}{\sin(x)}
Pythagorean identities
  • \sin^2(x)+\cos^2(x)=1
  • \tan^2(x)+1=\sec^2(x)
  • +\cot^2(x)=\csc^2(x)
Angle sum and difference identities
  • \sin(x\pm y)=\sin(x)\cos(y)\pm\sin(y)\cos(x)
  • \cos(x\pm y)=\cos(x)\cos(y)\mp\sin(x)\sin(y)
  • \tan(x\pm y)=\frac{\tan(x)\pm\tan(y)}{1\mp\tan(x)\tan(y)}
Double-angle identities
  • \sin(2x)=2\sin(x)\cos(x)
  • \cos(2x)=\cos^2(x)-\sin^2(x)=2\cos^2(x)-1=1-2\sin^2(x)
  • \tan(2x)=\frac{2\tan(x)}{1-\tan^2(x)}
Half-angle identities
  • \sin\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)=\pm\sqrt{\frac{1-\cos(x)}{2}}
  • \cos\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)=\pm\sqrt{\frac{1+\cos(x)}{2}}
  • \tan\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)=\pm\sqrt{\frac{1-\cos(x)}{1+\cos(x)}}=\frac{\sin(x)}{1+\cos(x)}=\frac{1-\cos(x)}{\sin(x)}
