Hi I have a few questions in can't get the right answers: 1)Simply the expression 2)Simply the expression This is what i have done: = = what should i do next? 3)if tanx=-4,x [ ] find: sec(x) P.S

What you have done is unneccesary. This is what i have done: = = what should i do next? 3)if tanx=-4,x [ ] find: sec(x) P.S .

He is using the fact that
can someone explained to me how do you get when you find cos(x) from tan(x)=-4.I understand that you get then but where does the 17 come from?

1) . Hey, shouldn't that be ?
