In trigonometric problems, the Greek letter theta is often used to designate an angle that has not been measured. It is a lot like the way the letter x is used in algebra.

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

What is the equivalent of sine theta over secant theta?

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.

How do you find theta for right triangle?

You can use your trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, and tangent).

Examples of the three basic trigonometric ratios?

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

What is 2 thetasin theta equals cos theta?

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.

What does sine theta mean?

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.

What does negative sine squared plus cosine squared equal?

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.

What is sin squared theta cos squared theta?

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.
