Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here's a hint that might help: \[\huge \tan^2 x + 1 = \sec^2 x\] and \[\huge \sec^2 x = \frac1{\cos^2 x}\] try solving it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{1+\tan(x)}{1\tan(x)}=\tan(x+\frac{\pi}{4})\] I would write each side so that the function tan( ) only contains x and not both x & x+pi/4. You the sum identity for tan. If you don't know it write both sides in terms of sine and cosine. Use the sum identities for them to expand tan(x+pi/4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright but on the R.S what do i do with the (x +pi/4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\tan(x+\frac{\pi}{4})=\frac{\sin(x+\frac{\pi}{4})}{\cos(x+\frac{\pi}{4})}\] Use sum identity for sine and cosine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember sin(a+b)= sin(a)cos(b) + cos(a) sin(b) and cos(a+b)= cos(a)cos(b) sin(a)sin(b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1pi/4 is 45º it is good to have memorized cos(45) and sin(45)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i knew that but can i convert it in the eqqn?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i could right 45deg instead of pi/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1btw, notice that you have the wrong sign in the denominator

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1pi/4 and 45 mean the same thing.... it matters when using a calculator, or in certain math operations where radians are more useful... but the cos(45º) = cos(pi/4 radians)
