## A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 2

In the last blog, I introduced a method for using trigonometry to find the missing side in a right-angled triangle. This blog will build on that and show you how to find the missing angle in a right-angled triangle. I would recommend reading that before this one for an introduction… Continue reading A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 2

## A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 1

Following on from the previous blog on Pythagoras’ theorem, this blog will be a guide to solving trigonometry questions. This guide will show you how to use trigonometry to find a missing side in a right-angled triangle. The next blog will build on this idea and show you how to… Continue reading A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 1
