Textbook Problem

In Exercises 1 to 6, find cos α and cos β . To determine

To find:

To find cosα and cosβ.

Explanation

Consider the following figure,

General formula for cosine ratio is given below,

From the given figure the value 3 is the hypotenuse value since it is opposite to right angle.

Then 5 is the length of the leg adjacent to α and a is the length of leg adjacent to β.

The Pythagorean theorem is given below,

(hypotenuse)2=(lengthofoneleg)2+(lengthofotherleg)2

Substitute the values of hypotenuse=3,lengthofoneleg=
