QUESTION 1:

1.1 Solve for 𝑥 in the given triangle. It is given that 𝐴𝐵 = 4𝑐𝑚 , 𝐵𝐶 = 3𝑐𝑚

and 𝐴𝐶 = 𝑥. (2)

1.2 In the diagram below, given that = 3𝑐𝑚 , 𝑋�̂�𝑌 = 30° and 𝑌𝑍 = 𝑥. Is it possible

to solve for 𝑥 using the theorem of Pythagoras? Motivate your answer. (2)

QUESTION 2

In each of the similar triangles labelled 1 to 5 on your diagram sheet, the OPP (opposite),

ADJ (adjacent) and HYP (hypotenuse) sides are denoted by the letters o, a and h

respectively. Copy the table below and answer the questions that follow:

2.1 Measure the length of each side, and record your measurements in the columns

assigned for that, to the nearest mm. (5)

2.2 Measure each of the marked angles and record your measurement in the column

assigned for that, to the nearest degree. (5)

2.3 When you are done with your measurements, use them to complete the remaining

columns on ratios, as indicated. (15)

2.4. Determine the mean values of your ratios: (use the decimal columns to work them

out)

2.5 Complete the statement below by writing down your observation on the values of

your respective ratios for each of the triangles 1 to 5:

Even though the triangles are all different sizes, the decimal values of each ratio is

(2.5.1). Although the sides of the triangles are of different measurements, all the

triangles are (2.5.2) angled triangles. The angle opposite the OPP side is (2.5.3).

The corresponding sides of all these triangles are in (2.5.4) (4)

QUESTION 3

The ratios (from 2.4. above) are given special names:

opposite

hypoteneus
= sine

hypoteneus
= cosine

opposite

hypoteneus
= tangent

All 3 of the above ratios are written as sin θ or cos θ or tan θ.

θ is the angle of reference.

For example: sin 30° , therefor sin 30° =
opposite

hypoteneus

3.1. Now use your calculator to evaluate the following values to 2 decimal places:

3.1.1 sin 30° (2)

3.1.2 cos 30° (2)

3.1.3 tan 30° (2)

3.2. Compare your values in question 3.1 with the mean values you calculated in question

2.4 and draw a conclusion from your observation. Write down your conclusion. (3)

3.3. What would happen if the angles measured in 2.2 was 42° ?

Explain your answer by calculating any one of the three trigonometric ratios discussed

above. (4)

3.4. Using the knowledge, you have gained in this investigation, solve for 𝑥 in question

1.2. (4)

3.5. In ∆𝑃𝑄𝑅 below, 𝑄𝑅 = 5,5 𝑐𝑚 and 𝑃�̂�𝑄 = 60°. Calculate the length of PR. (3)
