Cosine squared theta = 1 + Sine squared theta

It is 1.

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)

No, not necessarily. Cosine theta is equal to 1 only when theta is equal to zero and multiples of 2 pi radians or multiples of 360 degrees. This is because cosine theta is hypotenuse over adjacent, and the ratio 1 only occurs at 0, 360, 720, etc. or 0, 2 pi, 4 pi, etc.

Since secant theta is the same as 1 / cosine theta, the answer is any values for which cosine theta is zero, for example, pi/2.

No, it is not. To be correct, the expression requires parenthesis, which are missing.

It depends if 1 plus tan theta is divided or multiplied by 1 minus tan 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.

In trigonometry, the value of R is the radius of the circle, and is usually normalized to a value of 1. If the circle is at the X-Y origin, and theta is the angle between the radius line R, and X and Y are the X and Y coordinates of the point on the circle at the radius line, then... sine(theta) = Y / R cosine(theta) = X / R secant(theta) = 1 / cosine(theta) = R / X cosecant(theta) = 1 / sine(theta) = R / Y

4*cos2(theta) = 1 cos2(theta) = 1/4 cos(theta) = sqrt(1/4) = Â±1/2 Now cos(theta) = 1/2 => theta = 60 + 360k or theta = 300 + 360k while Now cos(theta) = -1/2 => theta = 120 + 360k or theta = 240 + 360k where k is an integer.

By converting cosecants and secants to the equivalent sine and cosine functions. For example, csc theta is the same as 1 / sin thetha.

No, it does not.
