Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd simplify this first: f(x) = 2 * sin(x) * cos(x) f(x) = sin(2x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0max value of acosx+bsinx is sqrt(a^2+b^2) and min is sqrt(a^2+b^2) thus here max value is sqrt(3^2+2^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[a\cos x+b\sin x=\sqrt{a^2+b^2} (\frac{a}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}\cos x+\frac{b}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}\sin x)\] using the fact that\[(\frac{a}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}})^2+(\frac{b}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}})^2=1\] u can prove\[\sqrt{a^2+b^2} (\frac{a}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}\cos x+\frac{b}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}\sin x)=\sqrt{a^2+b^2} \sin(x+\alpha)\]or\[\sqrt{a^2+b^2} (\frac{a}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}\cos x+\frac{b}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}\sin x)=\sqrt{a^2+b^2} \cos(x+\beta)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can use a special trig identity: Acos(x) + Bsin(x) = Ccos(xy), where C=\sqrt{A^2=B^2) and y = arctan(B/A). Hence \[f(x)=3\cos x + 2\sin x = \sqrt{13}\cos\left(xarctan\tfrac{2}{3}\right)\approx\sqrt{13}\cos\left(x.588\right)\] But in any case, the maximum for cos is 1, so the maximum for f(x) is the square root of 13.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also \(a\sin(x)+b\cos(x)=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\sin(x+\theta)\) for suitable \(\theta\) as i recall you can get this from "addition angle" formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@satellite73, how are you inserting equations without linebreaks? $ signs don't seems to work here (as they would in LaTeX).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are right, $ does not work here turns out \( is an alternative in latex if you need to see any code, right click and you can see it. it is good method for copying and pasting as well, so you don't have to rewrite the latex every time
