Prove the formula, where m and n are positive integers
a) Integral(-pi to pi) sin(mx) cos(nx)dx = 0.
b) Integral(-pi to pi) sin(mx)sin(nx)dx = 0 if m != n
Integral(-pi to pi) sin(mx)sin(nx)dx = pi if m = n
c) Integral(-pi to pi) cos(mx) cos(nx) dx = 0 if m != n
Integral(-pi to pi) cos(mx) cos(nx) dx = pi if m = n
I don't even know where to start with this problem!!! /
no, this is all different ways of integration. But my issue is I don't remember any trig whats so ever, So I'm trying to learn new material and re-teach basically teach myself all of trig over again. I think the last time I did anything using this much trig was like 6 or 7 years ago.
The important thing is to understand how these formulas are true. Then you do not need to memorize them. For example, when you asked this question I did not have to look them up nor memorize these identities. I just know that cos(x+y) leaves cosine with cosine and sine with sine and the rest was trivial. I was just reading CaptainBlank said he does not know the quotient rule but still solved the problem because he understands how it works.
