221 is theta (1)
It is a trigonometric function whose argument is the number theta.
It is a trigonometric equation.
COS squared Theta + SIN squared Theta = 1; where Theta is the angles measurement in degrees.
For such simplifications, it is usually convenient to convert any trigonometric function that is not sine or cosine, into sine or cosine. In this case, you have: sin theta / sec theta = sin theta / (1/cos theta) = sin theta cos theta.
You can use your trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, and tangent).
Given a unit circle (radius = 1) and a counterclockwise angle (theta) between the positive x axis, with the x-y coordinate of the point on the circle that the angle intersects, the three basic trigonometric ratios are... 1. sine (theta) is y 2. cosine (theta) is x 3. tangent (theta) is x / y
It is a simple trigonometric equation. However, without information on whether the angles are measures in degrees or radians, and with no domain for theta, the equation cannot be solved.
Theta is just a Greek letter used to denote measurement of angle. Sine is a trigonometric function, i.e., the ratio of the side opposite to the angle theta to the hypotenuse of the triangle. So Sine theta means the value of sine function for angle theta, where theta is any angle.
To determine what negative sine squared plus cosine squared is equal to, start with the primary trigonometric identity, which is based on the pythagorean theorem...sin2(theta) + cos2(theta) = 1... and then solve for the question...cos2(theta) = 1 - sin2(theta)2 cos2(theta) = 1 - sin2(theta) + cos2(theta)2 cos2(theta) - 1 = - sin2(theta) + cos2(theta)
sin(theta) = 15/17, cosec(theta) = 17/15 cos(theta) = -8/17, sec(theta) = -17/8 cotan(theta) = -8/15 theta = 2.0608 radians.
If there is a plus in between, that would be equal to 1, as a result of the Pythagorean Theorem. Otherwise, you can convert this into other forms with some of the trigonometric identities for multiplication, but you won't really get it into a simpler form.
