1. eyust707

1/sin^2(x) + Sec^2(x)/Tan^2(x)

2. eyust707

so the trick here is that you can change the sec and tan into sin and cos

3. eyust707

secx = 1/cosx tanx = sinx/cosx

4. eyust707

so that means that

5. eyust707

sec2x = 1/cos2x tan2x = sin2x/cos2x

6. eyust707

do you get that so far?

10. eyust707

theres a few different ways to remember it

11. Abbie23

Whoa, that's definitely a lot to remember! Thank you sooooooooooo much!

12. eyust707

so what did you get for the final answer?

13. eyust707

yea trig is a b****

14. eyust707

so much to remember!!

15. Abbie23

hahaha I know right!

16. eyust707

I hated trig so much

17. eyust707

trig exam was the only math test I ever failed!

18. Abbie23

Omg, if you failed, I'm gonna fail!

19. eyust707

well check it out.. my professor decided to drop the lowest exam score and i ened up doing fairly well.. really my teacher just sucked.

20. eyust707

once you realize that its all based off circles and triangles its actually really easy

21. eyust707

you totally could get an A

22. Abbie23

haha thanks! I have no idea what the answer would be and I'd hate to guess :/

23. eyust707

ok so check it out

24. eyust707

we have this: |dw:1339059507349:dw|

25. eyust707

all thats left now is this

26. eyust707

|dw:1339059532965:dw|

27. eyust707

is the bottom the same for both?

28. Abbie23

yes?

29. eyust707

yep

30. eyust707

so what does that mean we are now allowed to do with the top numbers?

31. Abbie23

32. eyust707

YES!

33. eyust707

and the bottom stays the same right?

34. Abbie23

yes?

35. eyust707

haha no need to be unsure!!

36. eyust707

=P

37. eyust707

and what do you get when you do that..

38. eyust707

the bottom stays the same the tops ones add

39. Abbie23

I don't wanna look stupid lol

40. eyust707

41. eyust707

gotta mess up to learn what ya did wrong

42. eyust707

haha i say that

43. eyust707

but secretly im the smae way too lol

44. eyust707

haha

45. Abbie23

2/ sin x^2!

46. eyust707

ding ding ding

47. Abbie23

OMG! That wasn't so bad!

48. eyust707

make sure you write it like 2/sin^2 x

49. eyust707

IKR!

50. Abbie23

51. eyust707

trig is stuff youve already done... they justtry and make it look confusing

52. Abbie23
