Trigonometry

Angles: $$\alpha$$, $$\beta$$

Trigonometric functions: $$\sin \alpha,$$ $$\cos \alpha,$$ $$\tan \alpha,$$ $$\cot \alpha$$

$$\sin \left( {\alpha + \beta } \right) =$$ $$\sin \alpha \cos \beta \,+$$ $$\cos \alpha \sin \beta$$
2. Sine subtraction formula
$$\sin \left( {\alpha – \beta } \right) =$$ $$\sin \alpha \cos \beta \,-$$ $$\cos \alpha \sin \beta$$
$$\cos \left( {\alpha + \beta } \right) =$$ $$\cos \alpha \cos \beta \,-$$ $$\sin \alpha \sin \beta$$
$$\cos \left( {\alpha – \beta } \right) =$$ $$\cos \alpha \cos \beta \,+$$ $$\sin \alpha \sin \beta$$
$$\tan \left( {\alpha + \beta } \right) = \large\frac{{\tan \alpha + \tan \beta }}{{1 – \tan \alpha \tan \beta }}\normalsize$$
$$\tan \left( {\alpha – \beta } \right) = \large\frac{{\tan \alpha – \tan \beta }}{{1 + \tan \alpha \tan \beta }}\normalsize$$
$$\cot \left( {\alpha + \beta } \right) = \large\frac{{1 – \tan \alpha \tan \beta }}{{\tan \alpha + \tan \beta }}\normalsize$$
$$\cot \left( {\alpha – \beta } \right) = \large\frac{{1 + \tan \alpha \tan \beta }}{{\tan \alpha – \tan \beta }}\normalsize$$
