There are 6 basic trig functions.

sin(x) = 1/csc(x)

cos(x) = 1/sec(x)

tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x) or 1/cot(x)

csc(x) = 1/sin(x)

sec(x) = 1/cos(x)

cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x) or 1/tan(x)

---- In your problem csc(x)*cot(x) we can simplify csc(x).

csc(x) = 1/sin(x)

Similarly, cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x).

csc(x)*cot(x) = (1/sin[x])*(cos[x]/sin[x])

= cos(x)/sin2(x) = cos(x) * 1/sin2(x)

Either of the above answers should work.

In general, try converting your trig functions into sine and cosine to make things simpler.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How do i simplify csc theta divided by sec theta?

By converting cosecants and secants to the equivalent sine and cosine functions. For example, csc theta is the same as 1 / sin thetha.

What is csc theta?

That depends on the value of the angle, theta. csc is short for "cosecans", and is the reciprocal of the sine. That is, csc theta = 1 / sin theta.

How do you simplify cos theta times csc theta divided by tan theta?

'csc' = 1/sin'tan' = sin/cosSo it must follow that(cos) (csc) / (tan) = (cos) (1/sin)/(sin/cos) = (cos) (1/sin) (cos/sin) = (cos/sin)2

Verify that Cos theta cot theta plus sin theta equals csc theta?

It's easiest to show all of the work (explanations/identities), and x represents theta. cosxcotx + sinx = cscx cosx times cosx/sinx + sinx = csc x (Quotient Identity) cosx2 /sinx + sinx = csc x (multiplied) 1-sinx2/sinx + sinx = csc x (Pythagorean Identity) 1/sinx - sinx2/sinx + sinx = csc x (seperate fraction) 1/sinx -sinx + sinx = csc x (canceled) 1/sinx = csc x (cancelled) csc x =csc x (Reciprocal Identity)

What is cos theta multiplied by csc theta?

It is cotangent(theta).

How do you simplify csc theta minus cot x theta times cos theta plus 1?

There can be no significant simplicfication if some of the angles are theta and others are x, so assume that all angles are x. [csc(x) - cot(x)]*[cos(x) + 1] =[1/sin(x) - cos(x)/sin(x)]*[cos(x) + 1] =1/sin(x)*[1 - cos(x)]*[cos(x) + 1] =1/sin(x)*[1 - cos2(x)] =1/sin(x)*[sin2(x)] = sin(x)

What is the derivative of csc x?

The derivative of csc(x) is -cot(x)csc(x).

Cotan(theta) is the reciprocal of the tan(theta). So, cot(theta) = 1/2.

How do you simplify sec x cot x?

sec(x)*cot(x) = (1/cos(x))*(cos(x)/sin(x)) = (1/sin(x)) = csc(x)

Tan theta plus cot theta equals 2csc2 theta?

Yes, it is.

How do you get the csc theta given tan theta in quadrant 1?

If tansqtheta plus 5tantheta0 find the value of tantheta plus cottheta?

tan2(theta) + 5*tan(theta) = 0 => tan(theta)*[tan(theta) + 5] = 0=> tan(theta) = 0 or tan(theta) = -5If tan(theta) = 0 then tan(theta) + cot(theta) is not defined.If tan(theta) = -5 then tan(theta) + cot(theta) = -5 - 1/5 = -5.2

How do you simplify cot of theta times sin of theta?

By converting everything to sines and cosines. Since tan x = sin x / cos x, in the cotangent, which is the reciprocal of the tangent: cot x = cos x / sin x. You can replace any other variable (like thetha) for the angle.
