CONTRARIETY OF SIGNS.—CHANGES OF MAGNITUDE AND SIGN OF THE TRIGONOMETRICAL RATIOS THROUGH THE FOUR QUADRANTS. 9. We have explained at some length the meaning and
use of the signs + and in algebra. They have a similar interpretation in trigonometry.
1. Lines.—Draw the horizontal A
line A 'A, and draw BB'at right angles, meeting it in O. Then
0 considering O as origin,
(1.) All lines drawn to the right parallel to A 'A are called positive,
and all lines drawn to the left parallel to A'A are called negative.
(2.) All lines drawn upwards parallel to B'B are called positive, and all lines drawn downwards parallel to B'B are called negative.
(3.) Lines drawn in every other direction are considered positive, as is therefore the
Р revolving line by which angles may be conceived to be generated.
2. Angles.-A similar convention is made forangles. Let OA be an initial line, and let a revolving line about the centre O take up the positions
P OP and OP! Then
(1.) That direction of revolution is considered positive which is contrary to that of the hands of a watch, and the angle generated is a positive angle.
(The positive direction is then upwards.) Thus, AOP is a positive angle.
(2.) The negative direction of revolution is the same as that of the hands of a watch, and the angle thus generated is a negative angle.
(The negative direction is then downwards.)
Thus, AOP' is a negative angle.
A ZAOP A, then ZAOP' = - A. 10. We will now
Pg examine the trigonometrical ratios for
P4 angles greater than a right angle, and for negative angles.
