Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so cosx cosx  (1sinx) becomes cos^2x (1sinx)

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good; now what multiply out the (1sin). what do we get?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good; and how can we play with cos^2 to make it in terms of "sin"? what does cos^2 =?

LaddiusMaximus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pythagorean identity?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0close.... yes, pyth identity. sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 solve for cos^2, what do we get? subtract sin^2 from each side: cos^2 = 1sin^2

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0our top becomes what with this information?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not ..... 1+sin. remember we already took care of that part. It was equal to: +1+sin do you see that? do you understand how we did it?

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but I thought (1sinx) would become 1+sinx  times one is 1 and  times sinx would become +sinx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets rewrite it this way: 11+sinsin^2 now what do we do?

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 11 becomes 0, so sinsin^2 is left.

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very good; how can we work this? can we factor anything out to make it look more like the bottom of the fraction? remember the bottom looks like this: cos(1sin)

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think of the top as: xx^2 if it helps

LaddiusMaximus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why don't you just flip cos/1sin so it will be (1sin)/cos?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very good :) that leaves us with: sin(1sin) sin  =  cos(1sin) cos can you see that we can do now?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sst; because you change its value if you do that and make a different equation. does 2/x = x/2 for all "x"?

anonymous

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Factor out what they have in common which is a sinx

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we factor out a (+sin) to get: sin(1sin) correct?

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so sinx is left on top?

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The numerator gives you sinx(sinx+1)

LaddiusMaximus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait a minute. okay right now I have sin^2x +sinx/cosx(1sinx)

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No ss the sinx is negative and the 1 is postive

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so sin^2x factors out the +sinx?

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so im left with sinx/cosx(1sinx)

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should be left with [(sinx(sinx+1)]/[cosx(1sinx)]

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does anything cancel?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(sin^2 +sin)/cos(1sin) becomes... sin(1sin) / cos(1sin)

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sinx+1=1sinx So that part in you numerator cancels out with that part in the denominator

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Laddi: Does sin^2 + sin = sin(1sin) ???

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didnt think it did.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this "find the moving textbox" is rather annoying. They need to find a way to simply "post" your responses without having to play "TAG"

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Laddi: lets figure this part out: sin^2 + sin: can we rewrite this as: sin  sin^2?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0don't be confused, now laddi what do you have: sin^2 + sin right? now take sin outside, u'll be left with = sin(sin1) or you can take sin only outside and u'll be left with sin(sin + 1) = sin(1sin) apply the distributive property and you'll get it :)

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay then it becomes 1sinx?

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that sinx doesnt go away. one takes it place when it factors a sinx out of sin^2x

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so sinsin^2x becomes 1sinx

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it becomes.... pull a sin out...... sin(1sin) right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0laddi, 4 = 2 x 2 right? let's say we have 4  2x, factor what will the answer be?

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it becomes sinx(1sinx)

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin  sin^2. pull out a "sin" put it to the outside... sin (1  sin) if we multiply it back in we get: sin(1)  sin(sin) = sin  sin^2

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0imagine the 2 as sinx :)

anonymous

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(sin)(sin)  sin we are going to steal one sin! then...we're left with one sin, soooo, sin(1sin) to check multiply the (1sin) with sin , it's going to be equal to ! sin^2sin! AWESOME!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good luck laddi hope u got it now :)

LaddiusMaximus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when you take a sin away it becomes 1?

myininaya
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You aren't really taking it away. That 1 is being multiplied by that sinx

LaddiusMaximus
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its more of a standard? 5(aa^2) becomes 5a5a^2?
