Could someone please explain these 2 problems for me?
#1: If and , then find tan x.
#2: What are the solutions for and ?
Thank you!!!
#1: If and , then find tan x.
Not sure about this, but I reckon you have to change sinx + cosx into the form Rsin(x + theta)
\theta)=Rsinxcos\theta+Rcosxsin\theta" alt="Rsin(x+\theta)=Rsinxcos\theta+Rcosxsin\theta" />
so
Equating terms
and
hence and
so
then find
so you will have
hope this helps, it should be easy to find x now and therefore find tan x.... there is probably an easier way though!!
