Not sure exactly where your "x" is, but in general: let sin^-1(4/5) = y => sin(y) = 4/5 Use sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 -> 1/tan^2(y) = [1/sin^2(y)] - 1 to find tan(y). Use half angle forumula to find tan(y/2) Blah. can;t be arsed to actually do it though,

Oppps, it is supposed to be 'Evaluate without a calculator'....Sorry

I don't see how that effects my method? I don't use calculators, anyway.

No, it doesn't, it just explains why there is no 'x'. XD

Thanks!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
No? I doesn't say what exactly you are solving for. I mean, I assume the whole expression = x, but...
anonymous
  • anonymous
No it doesn't effect your method is what I meant, and I am solving for tan of (sin^-1(4/5)/2), if that makes any sense. Your method seems right though.

My Method IS right. It's my method, after all.

Lol, that it is!

xD my method is hideously long. Sorry. draw a RA triangle with angle y = arcsin(4/5), you can fill in the other sides {3,4,5} and find sin(y) = 4/5, cos(y) = 3/5 And tan(y/2) = sin(y) / ( 1 + cos (y) ) My bad, haven'y used half tan in a while, but the formulae are all in terms of sin and cos.

Lol, that works too, thanks soooo much! :)

You're welcome (the only problem is you may not be able to assume the formula for tan(y/2), but it's not too taxing to prove).
