Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if it was a 1 I could use a^2x^2 as the identity for sin but I dont think taking sqrt of 5 is the way to go.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You didn't quite answer my question. What substitution would you actually use if it were a 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would make x=sin theta sodw:1359690857236:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Perfect. So, \(1  x^{2}\) leads to \(x = \sin(\theta)\). You already suggested that \(a^{2}  x^{2}\) leads to \(x = a\cdot\sin{\theta}\). Why would \(5  x^{2}\) lead to anything but \(x = \sqrt{5}\cdot\sin(\theta)\)?
