Best Answer

(sin(x)cot(x) - cos(x))/tan(x)

(Multiply by tan(x)/tan(x))

sin(x) - cos(x)tan(x)

(tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x))

sinx - cos(x)(sin(x)/cos(x))

(cos(x) cancels out)

sin(x) - sin(x)

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

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.


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

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 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 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 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

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

you need this identities to solve the problem..that is something you have to memorized sec x= 1/cosx 1-cos2x= sin2x tanx= sin x/cosx also, sin 2x= (sinx)(sinx) sec x - cosx= sin x tanx (1/cosx)-cosx= sin x tanx .. 1-cos2x / cosx=sin x tanx sin2x/ cosx= sin x tanx (sin x/cox)( sin x)= sin x tanx tanx sinx= sin x tanx


How would you find x when 0 equals 2sinxcosx-cosx?

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...:))


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.

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)

Cos x plus sin x equals 0?

cosx + sinx = 0 when sinx = -cosx. By dividing both sides by cosx you get: sinx/cosx = -1 tanx = -1 The values where tanx = -1 are 3pi/4, 7pi/4, etc. Those are equivalent to 135 degrees, 315 degrees, etc.
