Sum and difference identities
Trig identities are formulas developed based on Pythagorean Theorem. These identities show us how and where to find the sine, cosine, and tangent of the sum and difference of two given angles.
Basic Concepts
 Use sine ratio to calculate angles and sides (Sin = $\frac{o}{h}$ )
 Use cosine ratio to calculate angles and sides (Cos = $\frac{a}{h}$ )
 Use tangent ratio to calculate angles and sides (Tan = $\frac{o}{a}$ )
 Trigonometric ratios of angles in radians
