Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i asked u to write cos A  sin A as  (sin Acos A) u have written cos A  sin A as  (cos A + sin A) ..... . ....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 (sin Acos A) = sin A (cos A) = sin A +cos A = cos A sin A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok , lets forget everything, lets go another way. can u separate out the denominator ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think i can, but it would be in 4 sections right? like sin A / Sin A  cos A/sinA + cos A/cos A sinA/cos A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0absolutely correct! whats sin A/ sin A =? and cos A/cos A = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what? well if u add them 1 + 1 = that makes 2

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. now u are left with cos A/sinA sinA/cos A cross multiply again, same as previous problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ya i see it, i under stand it but just forgot where the 2 came from. it came from the 2 fractions that crossed each other out right?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it came from sinx/sin x + cosx / cos x = 1+1 = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 1/ sin a = the inverse of cos. that is csc and 1/ cos a = is the inverse of sine sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do u have any advice for me to kind of remember what to do. Because I know what the inverse fractions look like and everything I just get stuck all the time.
