Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's a pythagorean identity that says: sin(2x)=2*sin(x)*cos(x). so... 2cos(x)=1 cos(x)=1/2 And here's when your trig flashcards come in handy...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for some reason... i'm getting x = 0, pi/3/5pi/3 as the answers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, you're right, I'm wrong. Doing it graphically I do get your answers. That's odd...let me think...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0NO...you get \[x=0, \frac{ \pi }{ 3 }, \pi, \frac{ 5\pi }{ 6 }, 2\pi\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by dividing \[\sin\theta\], you erase values. that's the worst mistake you can do in these questions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sin(2x)\sin(x)=0\] \[2\sin(x)\cos(x)\sin(x)=0\] \[\sin(x)(2\cos(x)1)=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah I was thinking about that, like when you get holes in the graph when you simplify rational functions...Well thank you @Azteck .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given the information below, find the exact values of the remaining circular functions of θ. sec(θ) = 10 with θ in Quadrant IV I got Sine= sqrt(99)/10 Cos= 1/10 But I can't get Tangent... I tried doing Sine/Cos but I get the wrong answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get tangent... shouldnt i do sine/cos?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sorry, but I don't really get what you're doing. Are you trying to convert the secant to the other circular functions? Or do you replace the secant with each respective function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im just trying to get Tangent ... I already know what sine and cos are

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like I already know Sine and Cosine,.. Idk how to get Tangent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, sorry I didn't get what you were saying at first....Somehow I got it this time, so if: sec(θ)=10 in Quadrant IV θ=4.8122 tan(4.8122)=9.985. How did you get an exact theta?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's √99/10. sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 (1/10)^2 + sin^2 = 1 1/100 + sin^2 = 1 sin^2 = 99/100 sin = ± √ (99/100) = ± √99 / √100 = ± √99 / 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure its not (√ 99/10)/(1/10)=√ 99 ? I know I'm not being much help, but its just that the answer makes perfect sense...
