do you know the unit circle?
yup
okay, so where is cos(θ) = -sqrt(2/2) ?
3pi/4
Yes.. correct.
what about 5pi/4 ?
now do u need general solution or within the range 0 to 2pi ?
these are the directionsSolve the given equation. (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list. Let k be any integer. Round terms to two decimal places where appropriate.)
means genearalized solution, can u generalize this ?
5pi/4 ,-5pi/4,3pi/4,-3pi/4
There is an infinite amount of solutions, you need to write it in a way to GENERALIZE the solution.
so let me generalize it. cos function is periodic with 2pi. so values repeat after every 2pi*k here, \(\theta =\pm(3\pi/4+2\pi k),\pm(5\pi/4+2\pi k)\)
ohh i see but why do u add the 2pik at the end ? because it is a periodic function?
yes, as i said cos function is periodic with 2pi. so if a is solution, so is a+2pi, a-2pi,a+4pi,a-4pi, and so on
ohh i see i missed this whole lesson on this section and i dont know any of it
