This chapter is so confusing to me. Is there a simple way to go about this?

find a numerical value of one triganomic function of each x.

2 sin^2x = 3 cos^2x

1-sin^2x = 1/9

1+ tan^2x = sin^2x + 1/sec^2x

First one,

Use identity .

Thus,

Thus, open parantheses,

Thus,

Thus,

Thus,

Thus, all non-cotermial angles are, (use the arcsin)

Second one,

Use identity

Thus,

Thus,

Thus, all the non-coterminal angles, (use arccos)

Problem 3,

Use identity

Thus,

Use identity

so more than one problem relating to the same topic counts as multiple posts?

I saw that you made multiple posts on the topic of trigonometry. I do not think you want to "spam" the forum. I would allow it, but be careful and do not start asking the same question everywhere, because then we, the moderators, have to waste time deleting them. CaptainBlack already banned a person for 1 day for doing "spamming".

As it is I have left one copy of their message online.

I must confess to being touchy about spam on message boards, and if I

have the ability to stop it I will. I have seen enough good sites ruined by

spam.
