# Even And Odd Trig Functions

## Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

To understand about even and odd trig functions, it is first important to understand the concept of even and odd trig functions. A function is said to even function if the following relation persists:-

The relation for even function is f (-x) = f(x)

And a function is said to be odd function if the following relation persists:-

The relation for odd function is f (-x) = - f (x)

In case of even and odd trig functions, the following are the main even as well as odd functions:-

1. Sin (-x) = - Sin (x), hence by definition it is odd function
2. Cos (-x) = Cos (x), hence by definition it is even function
It is important to note that tan (x) and cot (x) are both odd functions.

Question 1:- Evaluate the value of Sin (-30) and tell whether it is even or odd function.

Solution 1:-   Here in this question we need to evaluate the value of Sin (-45)

We know that Sin (-30) = - Sin (30)

And we know that the value of Sin (30) = ½

Therefore,

Sin (-30) = - Sin (30) = - ½

Since in this case the relation f(-x) = - f(x) , therefore Sin (-30) is odd function.

Question 2:- Evaluate the value of tan (-45) and tell whether it is even or odd function.

Solution 2:- Here in this question we need to evaluate the value of Sin (-45)

We know that tan (-45) = - tan (45)

And we know that the value of tan (45) = 1

Therefore,

tan (-45) = - tan (45)=  -1

Since in this case the relation f(-x) = - f(x) , therefore tan (-45) is odd function.
