Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm... \[tan θ + cot θ\]\[= \frac{sinθ}{cosθ}+\frac{cosθ}{sinθ} =...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I did that and after that I got: \[\frac{ \sin \theta ^{2}+\cos \theta^2 }{ \cos \theta \sin \theta }=4\sin^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1after that: \[\frac{ 1 }{ \cos \theta \sin \theta} =4\sin2\theta \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22cosθsinθ = sin2θ Divide both sides by 2 cosθsinθ = ...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 1 }{ \sin2\Theta }=2\sin2\Theta \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Multiply both sides by sin2θ, what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait! would it be \[1=2\sin ^{2}2\Theta \] or \[1= 2\sin^2 4\theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its now \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }=\sin^2 \theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so I take the square root?? and get sin(\[\sin\frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ 2 }=2\theta \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[cos2x = 12sin^2x\]\[2sin^2x = 1cos2x\]Replace x by 2θ. Life isn't difficult then.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It should be\[\sin^{1}\frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ 2 }=2\theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i get \[2\Theta = \frac{ \pi }{ 2} \] and \[\frac{ 3\pi }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[sin\frac{\pi}{4} = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, \[\Theta=\frac{ \pi }{ 8 } and \frac{ 3\pi }{ 8 }\] ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, how do I find the the equation in the interval [0, 2π)??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm... Something's wrong there. \[1=2\sin ^{2}2\theta\]\[sin^2 2\theta = \frac{1}{2}\]\[sin2\theta = \pm \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]So, \[sin2\theta = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]or \[sin2\theta = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i noticed something, since the square root was taken to take out the squared sine....then the result needs to be + \[\pm \frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ 2 }\]

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To avoid taking square root, I prefer using my method: \[1=2\sin ^{2}2\theta\]\[1=1cos4\theta\]\[cos4\theta =0\]Then. solve theta.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so when I solve for all the solutions...is it?: \[\frac{ \pi }{ 8 }, \frac{ 3\pi }{ 8 },\frac{ 5\pi }{ 8 }, \frac{ 7\pi }{8 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1From zero to pi, yes... keep going to 2pi... 4 more solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The interval described is 0 to 2pi... so all of the answers that exist between 0 and 2pi are what you are looking for.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you want to get the next 4 solutions, use: 2pi  solution you've got. Then you'll have 4 more. Eg: 2pi  (pi/8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1pi/8, 3pi/8 my first try and pi/8, 3pi/8, 5pi/8, 7pi/8 the second try. I have one more try :S

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1pi/8, 3pi/8, 5pi/8, 7pi/8, 9pi/8, 11pi/8, 13pi/8, 15pi/8 are all of the solutions between zero and 2pi. I wish I could show you my pretty graph on my calculator. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2First four: pi/8, 3pi/8, 5pi/8, 7pi/8 Next four: 2pi  pi/8 = 15pi/8 2pi  3pi/8 = 13pi/8 2pi  5pi/8 =... 2pi  7pi/8 =... I'm sorry :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1My only concern is... was that interval stated as [0, 2pi] or [0, 2pi) ? You have said each through the course of this chat.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hahaha thanks. the reason why I didn't keep going is because in the previous problems I had, if it was divided by 3 theta I would only give 6 answers. If if was divided by 4theta, then 8 answers, so I would assume that in this excercise that's divided by 2theta I would only give 4 answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, this stuff is fun... no troubles. We do it because we love it... especially when people are really working and trying instead of fishing for easy answers.
