Sin(θ)=cos (θ)

Tan (θ)=cot (θ)

 

sine and cosine

tangent and cotenagent.

 

see that co?  

That stands for complimentary .. and

Complimentary angles add to 90 degrees

 

so 

\(Sin(\theta)=cosine (90-\theta)\\ so\;\;if\\ Sin(\theta)=cosine (\theta)\;\;then\\ \theta = 90-\theta\\ 2\theta=90\\ \theta=45^\circ\\ \text{of course there are an infinite number of answers but they are all of the from}\\ \theta =45+2\pi n\qquad n\in Z \)

 

You can do the other one yourself :)

Aw, please :( I'm kind of struggling with definitions

Come on.. try to understand what I have written.

If you understand the significance of the   'co'  in the front then all this becomes dead easy.

 

tangent and cotangent is

tan and cot

so

tan(x) = cot(90-x)

 

If tan(x)=cot(x)

then

x must equal 90-x

 

etc!
