    Re: N4 Examination Trigonometry

    Hello, chris541125!

    I had to guess what the problem said . . .


    Prove: . \frac{2\sin x+1}{\sin2x+\cos x}\:=\:\sec x

    Identity: . \sin2x \:=\:2\sin x\cos x

    The left side is: . \frac{2\sin x + 1}{2\sin x\cos x + \cos x} \;=\; \frac{2\sin x + 1}{\cos x(2\sin x + 1)} \;=\;\frac{1}{\cos x} \;=\;\sec x
