1. Whats the period of the graph of y = 2cos^2 5X -1
period = 2pie/b. I cannot define what the b is. In theory it should be 5, but the power has taken its effect.
2. For y= 5sinXcosX +1, find its amplitude,period, and its range, and its X intercepts X = all real numbers
no idea how to start.^^;
3. simplify sin^2 X + sec^2 X + tan^2 X + cos^2 X
a.2
b. 1+sin^2X/cos^2X
c.2sec^2X
d.2tan^2X
here is what i have done, first finding the common denominator.
= sin^2 X + 1 + Sin^2X + cos^2X
/ cos^2X cos^2X
= (sin^2X)(Cos^2X)+1+Sin^2X+(cos^2X)(cos^2X)
/ cos^2X
then i got stuck..
