I'm wondering if someone could help me list the Trig functions series.

For example:

Tan(x) = Sin(x)/Cos(x)

Sec(x) = 1/Cos(x)

I'm not sure if this is posted in the right section but I need these information for my Calc homeworks.

Cosec(x)=1/Sin(x).

What is Sec(x)/Tan(x) equal to by the way? Csc(x)? - May 29th 2006, 07:04 PMmalaygoel
yes it is equal to Csc(x)

Hello, nirva!

Because those examples are what was given to some question like:

What is equal to? . ?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

By the way, I prefer to simplify the function like this:

. . .

Multiply top and bottom by******

. . .

Then make two fractions:

. . .

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This is a technique used on a complex fraction,

. . a fraction with more than two "levels".

Example:

Multiply top and bottom by the LCD of the denominators (12):

Are you asking for the different trig identities? just wondering
