By using the method [acosθ+bsinθ=ccos(θ+α)] Find values of θ up to 360 degrees from equation 2sinθ+4cosθ=√5
Let 2sin/theta/ +4 cos/theta/ = rcos(theta + alpha) then 2sin/theta/ + 4cos/theta/ = r(costheta * cosalpha - sintheta * sinalpha) 2 sin/theta/ + 4cos/theta/ = (-r*sinalpha)sin/theta/ + (r cosalpha) cos/theta/ =>-rsinalpha =2 =>r cosalpha =4
Now, can u find r and alpha?
Yes should be ok from here. Thats great thanks
Just gone through it again fully got it now thanks again. Very quick math from you
