Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oops! forgot to sleep after going

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, first things first, lets find the first derivaitve of the function your where given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you find it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now can you please evaluate: f(pi/4)=9sec^2(pi/4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1basically to make it more accesible we can write this as: f(pi/4)=9[sec(pi/4)]^2

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1further more we can write it as: f(pi/4)=9[1/cos(pi/4)]^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then evalutaing we get: f(pi/4)=9[1/sqrt(2)/(2)]^2

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1further: f(pi/4)=9[sqrt(2)]^2 which the gives us: f(pi/4)=9(2), which is 18 Thus f(pi/4)=18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, thought your doing sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i rewrote secx as 1/cosx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just to make is easier for me, but if realise that sec(pi/4) is sqrt(2) then more power to you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now we have found the slope (m) of our line, it is 18

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, but we will use this form, y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i am getting sleepy lets finish this problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what would be the b in the slope formula

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now 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 918pi/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now lets substitute everyting in: y=18x(3618pi)/(4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i combined 9 and 18pi/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you could've just simplify it to 9pi/2

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, then smarty pants do it your way, regardless we came to a correct answer

ta123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry, so the finally would look like this 18x+9(1pi/2)

ta123
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just look the answer choices and so which one was the closest, but how come they have it 18x+9(1pi/2) instead of just 18x+9pi/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1distribute the negative sign, first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but was there a 918pi/4 at the beginning

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you not see it: dw:1316153548845:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I meant why was 918pi/4 at the begginig

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1above i accidentally wrote:y=18x(3618pi)/(4), but is was really suppose to be : y=18x+(3618pi)/(4), sorry about the typo

LagrangeSon678

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so can we lay this problem to rest?

ta123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I guess, but still don't get why they have 918pi/4 plug into b instead of just 18pi/4 by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah I just want to understand the problem instead of just getting the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because I might see it on the test, but thanks again
