Let f(x) = sin(x) + icos(x). Show that |f(x)| = 1. I'm not even sure where to start here...

    hey its too much easy... |f(x)|=sqrt((1)^2+(1)^2)=sqrt(2)

    here we will take its real part 1 will cos(x) and also 1 from imagnary part i(sinx) hey u have written wrong equation.. its cos(x)-isin(x)

    The question is right. I know DeMoivres, but in this case it's sin(x) + icos(x).

    So far I have LHS = \[\frac{ e ^{ix}-e^{-ix} }{ 2 } + \frac{ e ^{ix}+e^{-ix} }{ 2 }i\] Have I completely overthought the problem ? :)

    Hmm... I don't get it. How does that show that |sin(x) + icos(x)| = 1?

    daer i can`t .. i have seen the same result for it sqareroot 2 iz answer for both condition.. cos when we see cosx+isinx,, or sinx+icosx... taking coifficients we get the same result..

    I am thinking that you are using the fact that |f(x)| represents the exact distance between it and 0 on the complex plane... Notice that you can create a right triangle with the real part of f(x) and the imaginary part of x on a complex plane: |dw:1352104120632:dw| So, here, Re(f) = sin(x) and Im(f) = cos(x). We drop off the i since we're dealing with distances only for the imaginary part. Using Pythagorean theorem, |f(x)|^2 = (Re(f))^2 + (Im(f))^2 = sin^2 x + cos^2 x. Since we have a neat trigonometric identity here, we can use it to reduce sin^2 x + cos^2 x as 1. Take the square root of both sides and we're done. :)

    perhaps this definition can refresh you \[\huge \left| a + bi \right|=a^2+b^2 \]
