a- Express 5sinx+ 12cosx in the form Rsin(x+A)
a- Find the Maximum and Minimum values of f(x) where
f(x)= 1 / ( 5sinx+12cosx+17). State also the values of x in the range of x is greater than 0 less than 360 degrees, at which they occur.
I can do part a) My answer is 13sin(x+67,4)
But i cant do part b)

For f(x) to be max , its denominator has to be min and vice versa .
You can also find the corresponding value of x , depending whether you are taking 1 or -1 for your sin .
