Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it might help to know that \(a\sin(x)+b\cos(x)=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\sin(x+\theta)\) for suitable \(\theta\) that should help a great deal with the range

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0asin(x)+bcos(x)=a2+b2−−−−−−√sin(x+θ) but how do you get this ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2square root is on the outside it is \(\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\sin(x+\theta)\) and it is a consequence of the "addition angle formula"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i do not know exactly what you mean by "explain the function chapter" you could graph the function \[\sin(x)+\cos(x)\] using technology to see what you get or you could surmise that the largest the sum could be is if they were the same value, making \(\sin(x)=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\) and also \(\cos(x)=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\) and therefore the max would be \(\sqrt{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or more simply you could use the formula i wrote above, telling you that \[\sin(x)+\cos(x)=\sqrt{2}\sin(x+\frac{\pi}{4})\] and now the range is more or less obvious
