either cos OR tan-sin equals zero so
cos=0 at pi/2 and 3pi/2


tan=sin which is impossible

im not sure though

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

Sec - cos equals tansin?

Prove that tan(x)sin(x) = sec(x)-cos(x) tan(x)sin(x) = [sin(x) / cos (x)] sin(x) = sin2(x) / cos(x) = [1-cos2(x)] / cos(x) = 1/cos(x) - cos2(x)/ cos(x) = sec(x)-cos(x) Q.E.D

What is the solution to cos x equals 3 cos x - 2?


1 over cos x equals what?

sec(x)=1/cos(x), by definition of secant.

Cos plus tansin equals sec?

Start on the left-hand side. cos(x) + tan(x)sin(x) Put tan(x) in terms of sin(x) and cos(x). cos(x) + [sin(x)/cos(x)]sin(x) Multiply. cos(x) + sin2(x)/cos(x) Make the denominators equal. cos2(x)/cos(x) + sin2(x)/cos(x) Add. [cos2(x) + sin2(x)]/cos(x) Use the Pythagorean Theorem to simplify. 1/cos(x) Since 1/cos(x) is the same as sec(x)- the right-hand side- the proof is complete.

Determine exact solution for cosx - 0.5 equals 0?

cos x - 0.5 = 0 ⇒ cos x = 0.5 ⇒ x = 2nπ ± π/3

If sin x - cos x equals 1 over 3 what is sin x?

Need help with working this Trig problem out. A sin alpha plus cos alpha equals 1 B sin alpha - cos alpha equals 1 Solution is AB equals 1?

A*sin(x) + cos(x) = 1B*sin(x) - cos(x) = 1Add the two equations: A*sin(x) + B*sin(x) = 2(A+B)*sin(x) = 2sin(x) = 2/(A+B)x = arcsin{2/(A+B)}That is the main solution. There may be others: depending on the range for x.

cos-1(0.2874) = 73.29763833

What is the solution to cos equals sec-sintan?

I'm not really sure what you mean by "the solution", but that equation cos = sec - sintan does simplify down to sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 which so happens to be an identity. I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but if it is, here are the steps in simplifying it. 1. Convert sec to 1/cos 2. Convert tan into sin/cos and multiply it by sin sintan = sin(sin/cos) = (sin^2)/cos You then have cos = 1/cos - (sin^2/cos) 3. Multiply everything by cos cos^2 = 1 - sin^2 4. And finally, send the sin^2 over to the left side by adding it (since it is being subracted on the right) You should see this sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 which is an identity.

When does cos x equal -sin x?

The derivative of cos(x) equals -sin(x); therefore, the anti-derivative of -sin(x) equals cos(x).

What is the value of cos pie4?

cos pi over four equals the square root of 2 over 2 This value can be found by looking at a unit circle. Cos indicates it is the x value of the point pi/4 which is (square root 2 over 2, square root 2 over 2)

Cos x equals -cos x plus 1?

No, but cos(-x) = cos(x), because the cosine function is an even function.

What is the value sin x if cos x equals 2 over sqrt 5?

It would be 1 over square root 5.

How many solutions does cos squared minus two cos equal three?

What equals 1 cos squared x divided by cos squared x?

1. Anything divided by itself always equals 1.

Why does cos x equal cos -x?

cos x equals cos -x because cos is an even function. An even function f is such that f(x) = f(-x).

If Sin equals x and Cos equals y then x squared equals what function of y?

If x = sin θ and y = cos θ then: sin² θ + cos² θ = 1 → x² + y² = 1 → x² = 1 - y²

What is the solution set for 2 cos 0 - 1 equals 0?

The fisrt thing to note is that there is no variable in the question and so there cannot be a solution set. The only possibilities are the statement is true, false or indeterminate. Now, 2 cos 0 - 1 = 0 is equivalent to 2*1 - 1 = 0 [since cos(0) = 1] or 2 - 1 = 0 which is false.
