lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
what do you want to do with it?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
\[\sqrt 3 \tan (2x) = 0\] first step divide both sides by \(\sqrt{3}\) what do you get?
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so tan2x=1/sqrt(3)
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
nope. \[\tan (2x) =\frac {0}{\sqrt3}\] now simplify this
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh dear! sorry i didnt realise! The question is sqrt(3) tan2x+1=0
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
haha..then you're right \[\tan(2x) =\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}\]
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
now second step. take the arctangent of both sides
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
remember that negative sign...and it's not yet over
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
how does the negative affect it?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
well it doesnt affect that much

 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh ok so when you say take the arctangent, where do you go from there?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
so \[2x = \frac{\pi}{6}\] now you divide both sides by 2
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
is this one of the answers?
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well there are 4 values for x right?
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because there was a 2 between the tan and the x, which compresses the tan graph
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
i cant remember that part...is it adding \(\pi\) or \(2\pi\)
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
what do you mean 2 between tan and x..tan (2x)?
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah, thats what i meant tan2x
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i think its add pi
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
im not sure about this part so im gonna ask @amistre64 for some assistance. please come sir.
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Thank you for your help so far!!
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what does amistre64 say?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
i dont think he's coming yet...i tried tagging him to come here...
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
let me call a different one..he might be afk
 one year ago

vamgaduBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just add pi to the solution and it wont matter.
 one year ago

vamgaduBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yep i do think its another answer.
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
thanks @vamgadu you saved me there heh
 one year ago

vamgaduBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
its my pleasure @lgbasallote
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
however, in the back of my text book the answers are 5pi/12 11pi/12 17pi/12 and 23pi/12
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and im wondering how my magic maths textbook got there
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so we are going good with the 11pi/12 :D
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and if pi is added again, we get 23pi/12 which is also good!
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
you're doing right. so is there a further problem?
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well there are sposed to be 4 answers
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
then you add pi again
 one year ago

vamgaduBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
subtract a pi, if want int he interval, [2pi,2pi]
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well i have 11pi/12 and 23pi/12
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
11pi/12  pi is pi/12 (bringing you back to the orig thingy)
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thats not one of the answers :?
 one year ago

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
You started with 2x= pi/6 if we call 2x theta, we have 2 solutions: dw:1342706814544:dw and x is 5pi/12 and 11pi/12 now add pi to each value to get the other 2 solutions or , noting that 2x+pi divided by 2 is x+pi/2 , add multiplies of pi/2 to get all four solutions starting with pi/12 (which is 11pi/12 in the interval [0, 2pi] )
 one year ago

amsterdam11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
can this be done on a tan graph?
