The values depends on what x is. This function sqrt(2)*cos(x - pi/4) [with x in radians], is equivalent to cos(x) + sin(x).

or sqrt(2)*cos(x - 90°) [with x in degrees]

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

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


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 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...:))

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.

Does cos2x equal 2cosxsinx?

No; sin2x = 2 cosx sinx

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)

What is the derivative of -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

What is sin 3x in terms of sin x?

given the identity sin(x+y)=sinx cosy + siny cosxsin2x = 2 sinx cosx andsin(2(x)+x) = sin 2x cos x + sinx cos 2xusing the last two identities givessin3x= 2 sinx cosx cosx + sinx cos2xfactoring the sinx we havesin3x = sinx(2cosx cosx+cos2x)which satisfies the requirement.However, we can simplify further since cos 2x = cosx cosx - sinx sinx (a well known identity)sin3x = sinx (2cosx cosx +cosx cosx - sinx sinx)so sin3x= sinx(3cosx cosx - sinx sinx)or sin 3x = 3.cos²x.sinx - sin³x* * * * *Good, but not good enough. The answer was required in terms of sin, not a mixture of sinx and cosx. Easily recitified, though, since cos²x = 1 - sin²xTherefore sin3x = 3*(1-sin²x)*sinx - sin³x= 3sinx - 3sin³x - sin³x= 3sinx - 4sin³x

How do you integrate sinx divide sinx plus cosx?


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.

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.

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

cscx-sinx=(cosx)(cotx) 1/sinx-sinx=(cosx)(cosx/sinx) (1/sinx)-(sin^2x/sinx)=cos^2x/sinx cos^2x/sinx=cos^2x/sinx Therefore LS=RS You have to remember some trig identities when answering these questions. In this case, you need to recall that sin^2x+cos^2x=1. Also, always switch tanx cotx cscx secx in terms of sinx and cosx.
