It helps to convert everything to cosines, using the Pythagorean formula, i.e., sin2x + cos2x = 1.

sin2x + cos x = 0

(1 - cos2x) + cos x = 0

-cos2x + cos x + 1 = 0

cos2x - cos x - 1 = 0

Now you can apply the quadratic formula, solving for cos x, and using a = 1, b = -1, c = -1.

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

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.

No, (sinx)^2 + (cosx)^2=1 is though


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 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

How do you express the term 1-csc squared x all over sin x cot x to cos x?

(1 - csc2x)/(sinx*cotx) = -cot2x/sinxcotx = -cotx/sinx = -(cosx/sinx)/sinx = -cosx/sin2x = -cosx/(1-cos2x) = cosx/(cos2x - 1)


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
