Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the vertical asymptote for y = 2/x ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh nvm I don't even have to do this problem. Could you help me with something else?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so what I have to do is explain why for each problem. I have the answers already but I do not know the explanation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a. If sin theta = sqrt 2/2, which could not be the value of theta? 225 degrees

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1where is 225 degrees? which quadrant?

love_to_love_you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Um is it quadrant 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, and sine is negative in Q3 and Q4

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it's impossible for theta to be 225 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1b. For which value of theta is tan theta equal to sin theta? 2pi

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm guessing you had a list of choices?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's a problem. I have 2 problems. They have a and b parts to them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So what we have to do is explain why this is the correct answer/ show work.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well tan(theta) is the same as sin(theta)/cos(theta) it's one of the many identities

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large \tan(\theta) = \sin(\theta)\] \[\Large \frac{\sin(\theta)}{\cos(\theta)} = \sin(\theta)\] \[\Large \frac{\sin(\theta)}{\cos(\theta)}*{\color{red}{\frac{1}{\sin(\theta)}}} = \sin(\theta)*{\color{red}{\frac{1}{\sin(\theta)}}}\] \[\Large \frac{\cancel{\sin(\theta)}}{\cos(\theta)}*{\color{black}{\frac{1}{\cancel{\sin(\theta)}}}} = \cancel{\sin(\theta)}*{\color{black}{\frac{1}{\cancel{\sin(\theta)}}}}\] \[\Large \frac{1}{\cos(\theta)} = 1\] in step 3, I'm multiplying both sides by 1/sin(theta) since both sides have a sine that cancels making sense so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what happens next?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiply both sides by cos(theta) to get cos(theta) = 1 then you'll use arccosine to isolate theta

love_to_love_you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Idk how to use arccosine very well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what kind of calculator do you have?

love_to_love_you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just an online graphing calc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what's the link to it? so I can have a look

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it's a download from my school

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok I'm going to use this calculator here http://web2.0calc.com/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1click the "rad" button (next to "deg") to convert over to radian mode

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then type in "arccos(1)" without quotes http://web2.0calc.com/#arccos(1) what do you get?

love_to_love_you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cos^1(1) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then there's a tiny 2 pi under it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct, so 0 radians is one answer notice how 2pi radians and 0 radians are coterminal angles

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so since theta = 0 is one answer, theta = 2pi is also an answer there are infinitely many other answers. They only want theta = 2pi for some reason

love_to_love_you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So that makes 2 pi the answer as well?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah there are infinitely many answers, but the computer or teacher is only accepting 2pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm gonna try to figure out a for the next problem on my own but can you help me with b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A man stands on his balcony, 140 feet above the ground. He looks at the ground, with his sight line forming an angle of 75 degrees with the building, and sees a bus stop. The function d = 140 sec theta models the distance from the man to any object given his angle of sight theta. How far is the bus stop from the man? Round your answer. 541 ft.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1140*sec(theta) = 140*(1/cos(theta)) plug in theta = 75 make sure you are in degree mode use this calculator if needed http://web2.0calc.com/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah I'm getting 540.9184627208766586 which rounds to 541 (assuming you round to the nearest foot)

love_to_love_you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah i rounded
