sin2x / (1-cos x) = (1-cos2x) / (1-cos x) = (1-cos x)(1+cos x) / (1-cos x) = (1+cos x)

sin2x=1-cos2x as sin2x+cos2x=1

1-cos2x = (1-cos x)(1+cos x) as a2-b2=(a-b)(a+b)

How do you solve sin squared x divided by 1 - cos x?

Use this identity sin2x+cos2x=1 sin2x=1-cos2x so sin2x/(1-cosx) =(1-cos2x)/(1-cosx) =(1-cosx)(1+cosx)/(1-cosx) =1+cosx

Does cos2x equal 2cosxsinx?

No; sin2x = 2 cosx sinx

How do you simplify cosx plus sinx tanx?

to simplify Cosx=Sinx Tanx you should remember your fundamental and pythagorean identities.. Cosx + Sinx Tanx Cosx + Sinx (Sinx/Cosx) <---------- From Tanx= Sinx/Cosx Cosx + Sin2x/ Cos x <------------- do the LCD Cosx (Cosx/Cosx) + Sin2x/Cosx (Cos2x+Sin2x)/Cosx 1/Cosx <--------- From Sin2x + Cos2x =1 or Secx <-------- answer Comment if you have questions...:))

How do you solve 1 minus cosx divided by sinx plus sinx divided by 1 minus cosx to get 2cscx?

(1-cosx)/sinx + sinx/(1- cosx) = [(1 - cosx)*(1 - cosx) + sinx*sinx]/[sinx*(1-cosx)] = [1 - 2cosx + cos2x + sin2x]/[sinx*(1-cosx)] = [2 - 2cosx]/[sinx*(1-cosx)] = [2*(1-cosx)]/[sinx*(1-cosx)] = 2/sinx = 2cosecx

How do you break 1 sinx divided 1-cosx?


Can you Show 1 over sinx cosx - cosx over sinx equals tanx?

From the Pythagorean identity, sin2x = 1-cos2x. LHS = 1/(sinx cosx) - cosx/sinx LHS = 1/(sinx cosx) - (cosx/sinx)(cosx/cosx) LHS = 1/(sinx cosx) - cos2x/(sinx cosx) LHS = (1- cos2x)/(sinx cosx) LHS = sin2x /(sinx cosx) [from Pythagorean identity] LHS = sin2x /(sinx cosx) LHS = sinx/cosx LHS = tanx [by definition] RHS = tanx LHS = RHS and so the identity is proven. Q.E.D.

Parenthesis 1 plus tanx end parenthesis divided by sinx equals cscx plus secx?

Tan plus cot divided by tan equals csc squared?

(tanx+cotx)/tanx=(tanx/tanx) + (cotx/tanx) = 1 + (cosx/sinx)/(sinx/cosx)=1 + cos2x/sin2x = 1+cot2x= csc2x This is a pythagorean identity.

How do you express the term 1-csc squared x all over sin x cot x to cos x?

(1 - csc2x)/(sinx*cotx) = -cot2x/sinxcotx = -cotx/sinx = -(cosx/sinx)/sinx = -cosx/sin2x = -cosx/(1-cos2x) = cosx/(cos2x - 1)

How do you find the solutions of tanx equals 2cscx?

tanx=2cscx sinx/cosx=2/sinx sin2x/cosx=2 sin2x=2cosx 1-cos2x=2cosx 0=cos2x+2cosx-1 Quadratic formula: cosx=(-2±√(2^2+4))/2 cosx=(-2±√8)/2 cosx=(-2±2√2)/2 cosx=-1±√2 cosx=approximately -2.41 or approximately 0.41. Since the range of the cosine function is [-1,1], only approx. 0.41 works. So: cosx= approx. 0.41 Need calculator now (I went as far as I could without one!) x=approx 1.148

How does secx plus 1 divided by cotx equal 1 plus sinx divided by cosx?

secx = 1/cosxand 1/cotx = tanx, therefore1/cosx + tanx = 1 + sinx/cosx, andsin/cos = tanx, therefore1/cosx + tanx = 1 + tanx, therefore1/cosx = 1, therfore1 = cosx.So, therfore, it is not neccesarily true.But if you meansecx plus 1 divided by cotx equals (1 plus sinx) divided by cosx(this is probably what you mean) Let's start over!secx = 1/cosxand 1/cotx = tanx, therefore1/cosx + tanx = (1+sinx)/cosx therefore1/cosx + tanx = 1/cosx + sinx/cosxsinx/cosx = tanx therfore1/cosx + tanx = 1/cosx + tanxDo you think this is correct? Subtract both sides by 1/cosx + tanx:0 = 0So, therefore, this is correct!(BTW, I'm in Grade 6! :P)

How do you prove the following identity sec x - cos x equals sin x tan x?

How do you solve sin squared theta plus cos theta equals sin theta plus cos squared theta?

For simplicity's sake, X represent theta. This is the original problem: sin2x+ cosX = cos2X + sinX This handy-dandy property is key for all you trig fanatics: sin2x+ cos2x = 1 With this basic property, you can figure out that sin2 x=1-cos2x and cos2x= 1-sin2x So we can change the original problem to: 1-cos2x+cosx = 1-sin2X + sinX -cos2x + cosx =-sin2x + sinX Basic logic tells you that one of two things are happening. sin2x is equal to sinx AND cos2x is equal to cosx. The only two numbers that are the same squared as they are to the first power are 1 and 0. X could equal 0, which has a cosine of 1 and a sine of 0, or it could equal pi/2, which has a cosine of 0 and a sine of 1. The other possibility whatever x (or theta) is, it's sine is equal to its cosine. This happens twice on the unit circle, once at pi/4 and once at 5pi/4. If you're solving for all possible values for x and not just a set range on the unit circle, then the final solution is: x=0+2pin x=pi/2+2pin x= pi/4 +2pin x=5pi/4+2pin (note that n is a variable)

Does sin x tan x plus cos x equals tan x?

NO, sinxtanx=sinxsinx/cosx since tanx is sinx/cosx this is sin^2xcosx now add cosx cosx(sin^2x+1) after factoring Does this equal tanx? No, since this would require tanx to equal cosx(sin^2x+1) and it does not.

Sin x - cos x 0?

sinx-cosx=0 --> move cosx to opposite side sinx=cosx --> square both sides sin2x=cos2x --> use pythagorean identities for (cos2x=1-sin2x) sin2x=1-sin2x --> add sin2x to both sides of equation 2sin2x=1 --> divide both sides by 2 sin2x=1/2 --> take the square root of both sides sinx= +/- (square root of 2)/2 or .7071 If giving answers in radians --> answer appears in all four quadrants, so answer would be (pi/4 + piN/2). Other answers would be (3pi/4 + piN/2), (5pi/4 + piN/2), and (7pi/4 + piN/2). Check for extraneous solutions: The answers in the first and third quadrant are extraneous. Therefore, your answer is (3pi/4 + piN), because every pi, an answer occurs. In one trip around the quadrants, both 3pi/4 and 7pi/4 are answers.

Prove this identity 1 plus cosx divide by sinx equals sinx divide by 1-cosx?


How do you prove the following equation the quantity of sin theta divided by 1 minus cos theta minus the quantity 1 plus cos theta divided by sin theta equals 0?

You will have to bear with the angle being represented by x because this browser will not allow characters from other alphabets!sin^2x + cos^2x = 1=> sin^2x = 1 - cos^x = (1 + cosx)(1 - cosx)Divide both sides by sinx (assuming that sinx is not zero).=> sinx = (1 + cosx)(1 - cosx)/sinxDivide both sides by (1 - cosx)=> sinx/(1 - cosx) = (1 + cosx)/sinx=> sinx/(1 - cosx) - (1 + cosx)/sinx = 0
