WHAT IS A TRIGONOMETRIC IDENTITY?
A trigonometric identity is an equation that is equal for allvalues of the variable(s) for which the equation is defined
Examples of trigonometric identities
Trigonometric equations that are not Identities
Equation is true only at certain values of “x”
Both sides are equal for all values of “x”
Graphically, if both sides overlap each othercompletely, then the equation is an identity
Graphically, both sides only intersect at certainpoints, then the equation is NOT an identity
