Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2\sin \theta \cos \theta + \sqrt{3} \cos \theta = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1..I just need help getting started....I don't like direct answers @hwyl, so I'm not asking for one....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like what kind of help to get started? you said "again," so it means you are not doing this for the first time. What part of the problem you don't understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I meant I'm not doing trig for the first time....this is the first time that I am doing this...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not all of my trig is like this....not much is actually.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2first, clarify if the second term of the problem is \(\sqrt{3}~cos \theta \) or \(\sqrt{3cos\theta} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's what I put...\[\sqrt {3}~ cos \theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is there anything that is factorable?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What do you mean? O.o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2can you factor the lefthandside (LHS)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in my own opinion, factoring simplifies and does many wonders.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not quite sure how to factor this....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well look at the example I showed you look for something common in the first and second term. from what I can see, \(cos ~\theta \)

haleyelizabeth2017

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So \[cos (2 sin + \sqrt3)?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2perfect! now complete the form \(ab + bc = 0 \rightarrow b(a+c) = 0 \rightarrow b =0, ~ a+c = 0 \) what we are basically looking for are the values when the curves or lines passes through the xaxis, which we call the ZEROES.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so find the values where cos is 0?

haleyelizabeth2017

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and where 2 sin + sqrt 3 equal 0?

haleyelizabeth2017

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if so, then 2 of them are pi/2 and 3pi/2. How do I find the other ones? I'm not quite sure how to do it with the 2....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you're on the right track... you can do on your own

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wait! 4pi/3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes! thank you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you did well and I think you're just going to need a few algebra techniques to get started.
