Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For question (1) 2 sin (x − 60)° = 1 Divide both sides by 2, what do you get?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. Next, take arcsine for both sides, what do you get?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. What does \(sin^{1}\frac{1}{2}\) give you?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. That's the angle in quadrant I, what about in quadrant IV?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Or it's the good habit to memorize 1/2 = sin 30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I do remember it actually.

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh~ So.. you get x  60 = 30 or x60 = 330 Can you solve the two?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ah!!! My mistake!! The other angle should be in quadrant II... Since sine is positive in quadrant I and II.. I'm sorry!!

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm sorry... Just start it again! For question 1, 2 sin (x − 60)° = 1 Divide both sides by 2, which you've done just now. sin (x − 60)° = 1/2 Take arcsine for both sides, you get x60 = 30 or x60 = ______ (____is the angle in quadrant II, since sine of a angle in quadrant I and II gives you a positive value)

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you work out the ___ ?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm.... We're still on x60 = (angle in quadrant II), right?

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeh but I'm a bit confused with your method.

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how I was taught to do it was to find the angle in the first quadrant first, in this case it is 90 I believe?

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then using the angle that you found you use 180that angle found= to get the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can we do it in this way? Solve siny = 1/2, what is/ are y?

Callisto
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right! So, you get y=30 or y=150, agree?

Callisto
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, back you your question. 2 sin (x − 60)° = 1 sin (x60) = 1/2 So, in this case, let x60 = y, you'll get siny = 1/2. and just now, you solve y, which is 30 or 150. So can you get x?

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x60=30 or x60=150 x=90 or x= 210

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeh but I'm still a bit confused with a part of it.

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"So, in this case, let x60 = y, you'll get siny = 1/2. and just now, you solve y, which is 30 or 150. So can you get x?"

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, is it possible if u type out all the working out in logical order?

Callisto
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh... perhaps I should write it in this way. 2sin(x60) = 1 Let y = x60, then the equation becomes 2siny = 1 So, siny = 1/2 And as what you did, y= 30 or y=150 So, replace y by x60 x60 = 30 or x60 = 150 Solve x. It should be clearer now. Please ask if you still have questions. And sorry for my poor presentation just now :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Or you can visualize the circle: 1/2 = sin30 = sin ( 180  30 )

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk, I get the working out but yeh I may not remember how to do it your way as I was sort of taught a different way by my cousin and I absolutely hate these type of confusing type questions.

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's okay. Just choose the best way for yourself. :) Can you do question 2?

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep, well I'll try do it your way and I think I can only do half of the steps

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can try to do it using your own way first :)

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, so I've done this so far using your method, the rest I don't get. √2 cos(x+90)°+1 = 0 cos(x+90)° = 1/√2 let y = x + 90 therefore cos y = 1/√2 y = ............ or y = ............

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So far so good :) What are the values of y such that cosy = 1/√2

Chlorophyll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint: 1/√2 = √2/ 2

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm.. Forget my method... Can you solve it using your OWN way??

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well it was my cousin's way and he only taught me just then. I still don't quite fully understand his method that's why I was planning to see if anyone could simplify it down for me on here.

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you do me a favour by showing how your cousin has taught you? You can use another question or simply this question if you like.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan (x+45°) = 1 x∈[0°,360°] x+45 = 45° (x+45°) ∈ [45°,405°] 180° + 45° or 405° x+45° = 45°, 225° or 405° x = 0°, 180° or 360°

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your cousin's way is exactly as same as our way!

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I hope you don't mind me asking the following question. 1. Have you learnt CAST ? 2. Do you know something like cos(180  x) = cosx sin(180x) = sinx and so on? 3. Are you familiar with the trigo functions of special angles (that are 0 , 30 , 45, 60, 90, and so on) ? It's practically the same

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Don't worry, I have to do my quiz in an hour too : Here's your work! √2 cos(x+90)°+1 = 0 cos(x+90)° = 1/√2 let y = x + 90 therefore cos y = 1/√2 Can you solve y now?

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait. let me see... and good look for your quiz.

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well since the value is negative it has to be in the second or third quadrant?

Callisto
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. Another hint given by @Chlorophyll before : 1/√2 =  (1/√2) x (√2/√2) =  √2/2

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from there I'm a bit stuck as to how to solve for y.

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cosy = √2/2 What is the value of angle such that cos(angle) = √2/2? Another hint: refer to the sudden quiz

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but how did you get the √2/2?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ratinoalization?! 1/√2 =  (1/√2) x (√2/√2) =  √2/2

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can't u cancel the top and bottom Sqrt 2 and so u get 1/Sqrt2

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh yes, of course! But you need to know that cos45 = 1/√2

Chlorophyll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1√2/2 looks more familiar to you or not?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cos45 = cos(___ 45) = cos(____+45) ?

JayDS
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos45 = cos(18045) = cos (180+45)?

Callisto
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. So... cosy = 1/√2 y = ... or y= ...?

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0√2 cos(x+90)°+1 = 0 cos(x+90)° = 1/√2 let y = x + 90 therefore cos y = 1/√2 cos y =  √2/2 hmm where to from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeh, that is the same as what I said earlier? pi  sqrt 2/2 and pi + sqrt 2/2 I believe.

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but then you would need to convert is back to degrees.

Chlorophyll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's incorrect to connect the degree ( pi) with the radian ( arc length ) pi  sqrt 2/2

JayDS

Chlorophyll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1√2/2 = cos45 Now we wish to get rid of negative sign: cos45 = cos ( 180  45) cos45 = cos ( 180 + 45)

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0√2 cos(x+90)°+1 = 0 cos(x+90)° = 1/√2 let y = x + 90 So, the equation becomes cos y = 1/√2 cos y = √2/2 cos y = cos 45 cos (x+90) = cos 45 cos45 = cos ( 180  45) cos45 = cos ( 180 + 45)

Chlorophyll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually now you've done with the right side, plug it into the equation: cos (x+90) = cos 45 In the second quadrant: cos (x+90) = cos ( 180  45) > x+90 = ....?

Chlorophyll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Similarly for the third quadrant case, can you do it yourself?

JayDS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if x=45 wouldn't it just be 180+45=225?

Chlorophyll
