Ch9: Some Applications of Trigonometry

Angle of Elevation and Depression:

  • If you are looking up at an object, it’s the angle of elevation.
  • If you are looking down at an object, it’s the angle of depression.

Ch10: Circles

Tangent is Perpendicular to RadiusA tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact.
Lengths of Tangents from an External PointThe lengths of tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.

Ch13: Statistics

Mean for Grouped Data:

  • Direct Method: $\bar{x} = \frac{\sum f_i \cdot x_i}{N}$
  • Assumed Mean Method: $\bar{x} = A + \frac{\sum f_i \cdot u_i}{N}$
  • Step Deviation Method: $\bar{x} = A + \frac{\sum f_i \cdot u_i}{N \cdot h}$
  • Where:
    • $\bar{x}$ is the mean.
    • $f_i$ is the frequency of the $i^{th}$ class.
    • $x_i$ is the midpoint of the $i^{th}$ class.
    • ( N ) is the total number of observations.
    • ( A ) is the assumed mean.
    • $u_i$ is the deviation of $x_i$ from A.
    • h is the class width.

Mode: The value that occurs most frequently in a data set.

Median: The middle value of a data set when it is ordered.

Mode of Grouped Data:

$\text{Mode} (l) = l + \frac{(f_1 – f_0)}{(2f_1 – f_0 – f_2)} \times h$


l is the lower limit of the modal class

h is the class size

$f_1$ is the frequency of the modal class

$f_0$ is the frequency of the class preceding the modal class

$f_2$ is the frequency of the class succeeding the modal class.

Median for Grouped Data:

$\text{Median} (l) = l + \frac{\frac{n}{2} – cf}{f} \times h$


l is the lower limit of the median class

n is the total number of observations

cf is the cumulative frequency of the class preceding the median class

f is the frequency of the median class

h is the class size.

Ch14: Probability

1. Basic Probability Formula:

P(E) = n(E) / n(S)

  • P(E) represents the probability of an event E occurring.
  • n(E) represents the number of favorable outcomes for event E.
  • n(S) represents the total number of possible outcomes in the sample space.

Example: If you toss a fair coin, the probability of getting heads is 1/2 because there’s 1 favorable outcome (heads) out of 2 possible outcomes (heads or tails).

2. Probability of Not an Event:

P(E’) = 1 – P(E)

  • P(E’) represents the probability of the event E not occurring (also called the complementary event).
