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 cosine squared theta equal to'?

Cosine squared theta = 1 + Sine squared theta

What is sine squared theta subtract six cosine squared theta divided by one minus seven cosine squared theta?

It is 1.

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)

Is cos theta is equal to 1?

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.

What are the values of theta of which secant theta is undefined?

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.

1 minus 2 cosine squared divided by sine cosine is equal to tangent minus cotangent?

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

How can you verify 1 plus tan theta divided by 1 minus tan theta equals cot theta plus 1 divided by cot theta minus 1?

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

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.

In trig how is the value of r interpreted geometrically in the definitions of the sine cosine secant and cosecant?

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

How do you solve 4 cosine squared theta equals 1?

4*cos2(theta) = 1 cos2(theta) = 1/4 cos(theta) = sqrt(1/4) = ±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.

How do i simplify csc theta divided by sec theta?
