    for example tanA= sinA/cosA= SinA/sinC/TanA/ TanB see that

    yes that is the point because tan is sin/cos

    Yes but how will I know which one is the answer?

    and cos^-1 is 1/cos and sin-1 is 1/sin

    Fun, look at -arccos(3/5) and arcsin(5/13) as just numbers because that is what they are so set x = arcsin(5/13 and y = -arccos(3/5) and see the identity attached

    note in respect to the image x and y are theta

    this problem is just about being able to look up trig identities I dont think you will ever have to memorize these unless you go into majoring mathematics even then I doubt you would ever have to

    well there are some trig identites that are important to know but this one I do not believe is used very commonly in early mathematics courses

    also im sure you can derive this instead of memorizing it but idk
