ick i think the idea is to write the denominator as a single trig function

:O i thought maybe to split and take 2 fractions O.o

but idk how to do tht _

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
it is going to be \(5\sin(x+\theta)\) but i don't see a nice form for \(\theta=\tan^{1}(\frac{4}{3})\)

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
actually it doesn't matter because \(\theta\) is a constant also i made a mistake, it is \(5\sin(x\theta)\) still no matter

i don't think there is a snappier way to do this. let me think for a second

ok no i can't think of a better way, and also i tried wolfram and what a disaster what you need to know is \[a\sin(x)+b\cos(x)=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\sin(x+\theta)\] where \(tan(\theta)=\frac{b}{a}\)

hmmmm....suppose i know tht....how to use it O.o

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
well then it is easy, especially if you have a table of integrals this becomes \[\frac{1}{5}\int\csc\left(x\tan^{1}(\frac{4}{3})\right)\]

don't worry about the arctan part, that is a number

so all you need to do is look up the anti derivative of cosecant and you are done

hmmmm....we've never use secant...wht is it?

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
cosecant it is the reciprocal of sine
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
integral is \[\int csc(x)dx=\ln(\cot(x)+\csc(x))\] if you have not used this i really have no idea how you are supposed to do this problem maybe multiply top and bottom by the conjugate?

:/....ok.. thank you Sir :D

maybe we can get some help i will repost there might be a snappy trick
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
maybe myininaya has a snappy way multiply top and bottom by \(3\sin(x)+4\cos(x)\) maybe?

I don't know @satellite73 I like what you did.
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
ok then i will stick to that. thanks

I actually think what sat did was probably the most snappiest thing you can do for this type of integral

If we replace sinx by 2tan(x/2)/(1 + tan^2(x/2),

sec=1/cosx????
 2 years ago

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes @angela210793 sec(x)=1/(cos(x)) csc(x)=1/(sin(x))

ok....thanks guys :D

\[\huge sinx = \frac{2\tan \frac{x}{2}}{1+ \tan^2\frac{x}{2}}\] \[\huge cosx = \frac{1  \tan^2\frac{x}{2}}{1+ \tan^2\frac{x}{2}}\]
