Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. sin, tan, sec, cos, cot, csc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find all six? Can you baby it down for me haha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so first look at your triangle its 35 in x and 37 in y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so enter 35/37 in your calculator, and then do cos1 (35/37)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats a button on your calculator cos inverse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do the same for sin and tan

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok it is now cos=161.0753556

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that answer is in radians which is fine too if your teacher wants that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright thats one, now do the rest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remember that 1/sin= csc 1/cos=sec 1/tan=cot

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya it usually accepts fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it found that angle, but if your teacher is particular on you to only find tht last angle on the bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i just plugged in 37/\[\sqrt{2594}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it in quadrant 2 not 4?

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont know its your choice what do you want??

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well the cos is positive and the tan is negative. so wont that be quad 4?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now what would the hypotenus equal?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i get square root of 2594

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is that right? I might be doing my calcs wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1401423880441:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would sin of theta=37/square root of 2594

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the hypotenuse should be roughly sqrt2*36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no nvm that, its just an approximation i dont have calc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cos is adj/hyp you labeled the initial triangle a bit wrong

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you show me the right triangle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now find the opp measurement of the angle theta dw:1401424168943:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and how did you get that?

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use the theorem we talked about last question

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are given cos is 35/37

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right right right. got it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0none of those are negative?

myininaya
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right cos is positive not negative

myininaya
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you will definitely get a negative number for that opp measurement to theta

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and it should really be 12

myininaya
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or b=12 we will go with b=12 because we were given cos is + tan is  which makes sin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1401424409906:dw that symbolizes the triangle is to the right of zero but below 0 (that is talking about the signs)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that clarifies completely. what about this one? tan θ is undefined. constraint: π ≤ θ ≤ 2π

dan815
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remember tan theta = sin theta/costheta so its undefin when cos theta= 0 which is at?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so each one would be undefined?

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no just the tan and the cot

dan815
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well atually no cot is fine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i find the rest?

dan815
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0have to first find this

dan815
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan theta= sin theta/cos theta => undefined when denominator =0 where cos theta =0

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0solve for cos theta = 0 , when theta is in that given interval pi to 2pi
