Hello,

I am having a bit of trouble solving this eqn:

tan (x) + cot (x) = 2sec (x)

For all angles between 0 and 360 degrees.

Thank you!

Ah very clever!

Thank you very much!

Im now a but stuck on this:

tan (x) + 3cot (x) = 5sec (x)

Very similar but the cos^2 {x) + sin^2 (X) = 1 trick doesnt work? - April 5th 2010, 09:38 AMArchie Meade
