# Trigonometric Equation

We extensively use of the graphs of the functions sine, cosine and tangent in order to solve these equations.  In trigonometric equations, a number of angles and their trigonometric ratios are used frequently. A list of these angles and their sines, cosines, and tangents are given below.
