## Flashcard Content Overview

This flashcard set will help you learn about trigonometric identities, which are true statements or definitions of different trigonometric functions, or how angles and sides of a triangle relate to each other. There are seven different groups of common trigonometric identities. These groups allow you to develop a better understanding of when to use a specific identity as you learn what each group can do. For example, some groups involve double angles, while others include half angles. Some identities allow you to convert from multiplication to addition or subtraction or vice versa. There are even identities that involve the Pythagorean theorem.

So, why do you need these trigonometric identities? Well, trig identities allow you to solve problems that involve simplifying a trigonometry problem. They can also help you prove various trigonometric statements. If you are scratching your head in confusion, don't worry - after you study this set of flashcards will you will have a good understanding of what trigonometric identities are and how they are used.
