For number 18 on pg 811, I am getting up to the part where I get 1/cos^2r + sinr/cos^2r and then getting stuck. I'm not sure if I did something I wasn't supposed to on the way, or if I'm just overthinking this. Any help would be great! Thanks!

For the 14.2 homework number 12, I used difference of two squares and used P.I. for sec2ttan2t) to equal 1. Where am I going wrong?

When I freeze the right side on problem 27, I end up the point where I get 33cosx+ 4sin^2x/1 cos^2x...I don't know where to go from here. Can someone plz help me?

Archana for problem #27 you are right so far, now you have to factor the top half of the fraction. Remember what she said in class today? Think algebra. So when you factor it out, you should get (1+cosx)(14cosx). And that is all over 1cos^2x. Let me know if you need any more help from there! You should get the answer in the next couple of steps:)

Can someone please help me with number 25 and 29 on pg. 822? I totally got stuck on both, I came to a certain point, but then didn't know what to do.

Archana. #25 on p. 822, you get told tan(ab). So you make the triangles and find out A=Root 3/3 and B=3/4. so you plug those numbers into the the equation tanAtanB/1+tanA*tanB. You get (root3/33/4)/(1+root3/3*3/4) Whence you multiply it out you get (4root39)/1+3root3/4). So then you have to find a commor denominator which would be 12. so you get (4root39)/(12+3root3). And since you cannot have a root in the denominator you must multiply it through and you get (48root336108+27root3)/(11427). So when you combine like terms you get 25root348/39.

For number 20 on pg. 835, when we divide by 2 to find out if the half angle is positive or negative, are we supposed to divide the orginal angle (450<x<540) by 2 or do we divide the coterminal angle (90<x<180) by 2?

Does anyone know how to do number 10? I feel like i'm missing something obvious

Nevermind, i got it and brandon i hthink the answer would be in radians because its not talking about degrees but numbers

Christian, I believe you have to use GCF and factor most of them, but to make life easier, set the equation equal to zero. I think that will guide you through questions 16 till 20.

Can someone please help me with problem #18 on pg. 857?
Anna Reimers
4/10/2011 09:04:05 am
Sahana For problem #3, the equation is 2sin(x+47degrees)=1. First you divide both sides by 2. Then you end up with sin(x+47degrees)=1/2. Now you have to figure out which degree has a sine of 1/2. If you look on the unit circle, 30degrees and 150degrees have a sine of 1/2. So you set x+47degrees=30degrees and x+47degrees=150degrees. Then you solve the equation and get x=17degrees and x=103degrees. But since 17degrees isnt in the domain for x then you add 360 degrees so x=343degrees.

Anna, for problem #18, these are the steps I took to solving it:
Ishta
4/11/2011 10:39:16 am
Anna, the problem is 33sinx2cos2x=0. First turn the cos2x into 1sin2x (it is an identity) and then distribute the negative (don't forget to change the signs. So if you simplify it, you get 2sinx3sinx+1=0 (in standard form). Then factor to get (2sinx1)(sinx1)and then set the two equal to 0, thus you have sinx= 1/2 and sinx=1 so when you are in the range [pie, pie] the possible answers are pie/6, pie/2, 5pie/6.

I was doing some extra problems for tomorrow's quiz and was wondering how to do number 13 on page 857? Thanks :)
Brandon Jachimiec
4/14/2011 08:38:39 am
Ishta  For number 13 on page 857, you are going to want to treat it like a regular algebra problem. To begin, you factor it as (2cosx  1)(cosx 2)=0 then you just add either 1 or 2, then divide if needed, then look at the unit circle for those cosine values, make sure they are in the domain. The final answer ends up being pi/3 and 5pi/3.

In the problem, sin2x=√2sinx, would I square both sides first? or change the left side to 2sinxcosx first?
Andy Mancini
4/17/2011 11:56:49 am
Randychange the left side to 2sinxcosx then add the rootsinx to the other side and set the whole thing equal to zero so you get 2sinxcosx+root2sinx=0 factor out the sinx so you get sinx(2cosx+root2)=0 set both factors equal to zero and you get sinx=0 2cosx+root2=0 move the root2 over and divide by two to get cosx=root2/2. then you apply those answers to the domain and you're set.

So I was looking back on past homework to review and I was wondering if anyone knew how to solve pg 856 #35: tan1/2x+1=cosx.... I tried plugging in the formula for tan1/2x and then i squared it so I could possibly use an identity, but I couldn't get anywhere after that... any suggestions? Comments are closed.
