    is it right?

  14. LagrangeSon678

    basically to make it more accesible we can write this as: f(pi/4)=9[sec(pi/4)]^2

  15. LagrangeSon678
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    further more we can write it as: f(pi/4)=9[1/cos(pi/4)]^2

  16. LagrangeSon678
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    then evalutaing we get: f(pi/4)=9[1/sqrt(2)/(2)]^2

  17. ta123

    what square root 2/2???

  18. LagrangeSon678
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    further: f(pi/4)=9[sqrt(2)]^2 which the gives us: f(pi/4)=9(2), which is 18 Thus f(pi/4)=18

    yes, look at the unit circle, at pi/4 or 45 degrees, cos is sqr(2)/2, now if we rationalize the numerator we get just sqrt(2)

    just to make is easier for me, but if realise that sec(pi/4) is sqrt(2) then more power to you

    what would be the b in the slope formula

    Now remeber we said, that we have the x coordinate in the beining of pi/4, lets evaluate the orginal function at this point, this will give us the y in our line. f(pi/4)=9tan(pi/4) =9(1) =9 now we have our x which is pi/4, we have our slope which is 18, lets plug this info into our line: 9=18(pi/4)+b this means that b is = to 9-18pi/4

    I just look the answer choices and so which one was the closest, but how come they have it 18x+9(1-pi/2) instead of just 18x+9pi/2
