How to solve it: Given cos 6 theta = 4/5, P 6 theta is in Q1, tan 6 theta = ? a) 3/4 b) 4/3 c) - 3/4 d) - 4/3
what does the P mean?
I will leave you with the following: |dw:1388491733745:dw| Find tan(6theta) using the above picture
Ok , thank you, i am not sure about P
So P is certainly there in the problem? It made no sense to me to include it so I didn't.
do you know how to find tan(6*theta) using the pic above?
I will need to use one of the formulas that allow to calculate tan if I have cos given, or to calculate the third angle from Pythagorean theorem and then use it to calculate tan
the third side and you will use the definition from tan which is opp over adj, right?
Thank you very much for your help
|dw:1388539331469:dw| |dw:1388539436553:dw| the answer is tan6 theta = 3\4
A ) 3\4 is the correct answer
Thank you so much
@tomektomeknyc I hope that you were able to find the answer before @Haseeb96 gave you the answer. I really hope you had the chance to see if you could get the answer first rather than someone just handing it to you.
I am checking it now, I will make sure I get there, and the answer is just to make sure I did it right
@myininaya is able for Medal ....
The way he suggested is one way to look at it. You can straight up use one the trig Pythagorean identities. I sorta like using the visual I suggested.
