hi naomi,

following on from Prove It's good post,

in terms of the substitution you are working with,

we have

If we write this as

then

hence

Hi Prove it,

your trigonometric approach is almost clear to me. There is one thing which I don't completely get.

How do you get from this step sqrt((1/4)^2-(1/4sin (theta))^2) to 1/4 sqrt(1-sin^2(theta))? - January 26th 2010, 08:29 PMProve It

Hi Prove it

Could you explain how you get from

sqrt(-(1/4)^2((sin^2)(theta)))

to

sqrt((1-sin^2(theta))) - January 27th 2010, 09:34 PMProve It
Check my edit.
