Trigonometric identities are equations that relate to different trigonometric functions and are true for any value of the variable that is there in the domain. Basically, an identity is an equation that holds true for all the values of the variables present in it. The function of an angle i.e the angles and sides relationships is given by trigonometric functions. Sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, Cos, Cosec are called the trigonometric functions. Let's look into the Cos Square theta formula below.
Formula for Cos Square theta
According to the trigonometric identities, we know that,
cos2θ + sin2θ = 1
θ is an acute angle of a right triangle.
sinθ and cosθ are the trigonometric ratios given as follows:
sinθ = Altitude/Hypotenuse
cosθ = Base/Hypotenuse
sin2θ is the square of sinθ and cos2θ is the square of cosθ i.e,
sin2θ = (sinθ)2
Thus cos square theta formula is given by,
cos2θ = 1 - sin2θ
