## mdelgado167 2 years ago give the exact value of f(pi/3) if f(X)=6cosx-10sin2x

why 7x+4?

2. AravindG

substitute $$x$$ with $$\dfrac{\pi}{3}$$

ok and then from here I am not clear what do

4. zordoloom

Do you know what is the cosine and sine of pi/3?

cosine pi/3=.9998329795 and sine pi/3=.0182760276

6. AravindG

:) Then whats the problem ?

7. zordoloom

Do you know what the unit circle is?

8. AravindG

just put those values in the function get the answer be happy :)

9. zordoloom

The values are not correct. cosine of pi/3 is .5

10. zordoloom

and sine of pi/3= sqrt(3)/2

ok. I have the answer my teacher put up on the board which is 3-5$\sqrt3$

12. zordoloom

Remember that you are finding the values in radians, not degrees.

but I cannot seem to get this value

oh! that helps thanks :)

15. zordoloom

|dw:1359283703684:dw|

16. zordoloom

Just continue from there.

17. zordoloom

|dw:1359283831486:dw|

oh ok I got it! thank you so much!

19. zordoloom

Sure.
