cos(x) cot(x) = cos(x) * 1/(tan(x)) = cos(x) * 1 / (sinx(x) / cos(x))

= cos2(x) / sin(x) = (1-sin2(x)) / sin(x) = 1/sin(x) - sin(x)

so the antiderivative of cos(x)cot(x) = log[abs(tan(x/2))]+cos(x)

This can also be written as log[abs((sin(x)/(cos(x)+1))]+cos(x) if we want everything in terms of x and not (x/2). The two answers are, of course, the same.

where log(x) refers to the natural log, often written ln(x).

We might write ln[|sin(x)|/|cos(x)+1|] +cos(x)

Simplify sinx cotx cosx?

== cot(x)== 1/tan(x) = cos(x)/sin(x) Now substitute cos(x)/sin(x) into the expression, in place of cot(x) So now: sin(x) cot(x) cos(x) = sin(x) cos(x) (cos(x)/sin(x) ) sin(x) cos(x) cos(x)/sin(x) The two sin(x) cancel, leaving you with cos(x) cos(x) Which is the same as cos2(x) So: sin(x) cot(x) cos(x) = cos2(x) ===

Solution for tan x plus cot x divided by sec x csc x?

(tan x + cot x)/sec x . csc x The key to solve this question is to turn tan x, cot x, sec x, csc x into the simpler form. Remember that tan x = sin x / cos x, cot x = 1/tan x, sec x = 1/cos x, csc x = 1/sin x The solution is: [(sin x / cos x)+(cos x / sin x)] / (1/cos x . 1/sin x) [(sin x . sin x + cos x . cos x) / (sin x . cos x)] (1/sin x cos x) [(sin x . sin x + cos x . cos x) / (sin x . cos x)] (sin x . cos x) then sin x. sin x + cos x . cos x sin2x+cos2x =1 The answer is 1.

How do you solve csc x sin x equals cos x cot x plus?

Suppose csc(x)*sin(x) = cos(x)*cot(x) + y then, ince csc(x) = 1/sin(x), and cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x), 1 = cos(x)*cos(x)/sin(x) + y so y = 1 - cos2(x)/sin(x) = 1 - [1 - sin2(x)]/sin(x) = [sin2(x) + sin(x) - 1]/sin(x)

How do you simplify sec x cot x cos x?

y = sec(x)*cot(x)*cos(x)To solve this trigonometric equation, you need to know these identities:sec(x) = 1/(cos(x))cot(x) = 1/(tan(x)) = (cos(x))/(sin(x))Now substitute these identities into the original equation:y = (1/cos(x))*((cos(x))/(sin(x)))*cos(x)Now cancel out the terms that are similar in the numerator and denominator to leave you with:y = (1/(sin(x)))*cos(x)y = (cos(x))/(sin(x))From the aforementioned known identity, the final simplified trigonometric equation becomes:y = cot(x)

How do you find cot on your Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus calculator?

The TI-83 does not have the cot button, however, if you type 1/tan( then this will work the same as the cot since cot=1/tan. The other way to do this is to type (cos(x))/(sin(x)) where x is the angle you're looking for. This works because cot=cos/sin

Is 2 cot x sin x cos x equals 2 - 2 sin 2 x an identity?

The easiest way to approach this problem is by rewriting the left hand side entirely in terms of sin and cos and then simplifying. To do so, use the fact that cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x) to get that 2*cot(x)*sin(x)*cos(x)=2*cos(x)/sin(x)*sin(x)*cos(x)=2*cos(x)² Next, we will try to simplify the right hand side by factoring and utilizing the formula cos(x)²+sin(x)²=1 which implies that 1-sin(x)²=cos(x)² 2-2sin(x)²=2*(1-sin(x)²)=2*cos(x)² Since both sides can be simplified to equal the same thing, both sides must always be equal, and the equation 2*cot(x)*sin(x)*cos(x)=2-2sin(x)² must be an identity

Integral of sec2x-cosx plus x2dx?

I wasn't entirely sure what you meant, but if the problem was to find the integral of [sec(2x)-cos(x)+x^2]dx, then in order to get the answer you must follow a couple of steps:First you should separate the problem into three parts as you are allowed to with integration. So it becomes the integral of sec(2x) - the integral of cos(x) + the integral of x^2Then solve each part separatelyThe integral of sec(2x) is -(cos(2x)/2)The integral of cos(x) is sin(x)The integral of x^2 isLastly you must combine them together:-(cos(2x)/2) - sin(x) + (x^3)/3
