Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would it be something like this? \[\Large \frac{d}{d\theta}tan(\theta) =8\cdot \frac{d}{d\theta}sin(\theta) \] Where \[\Large \frac{d}{d\theta}tan(\theta) > 0\] What is the topic of the curriculum?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So do you think you can find those derivatives, and then solve for \(\theta\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, what is \(\sec^2(\theta )\) in terms of \(\sin(\theta) \) and \(\cos(\theta)\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you still need help solving for \(\theta\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so we have \[\Large \frac{1}{\cos^2(\theta)} = 8\cdot \cos(\theta)\]How can we isolate \(\theta \) further?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How about we multiply both sides by \(\cos^2(\theta)\)? Try that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just remember that you want the smallest positive \(\theta \), and that \(\cos(\theta)\) must also be positive since they should be increasing.
