Hello Everyone,
I have the following instruction, "Use trigonometric identities to transform one side of the equation into the other" ?
First I don't exactly understand what the instructions are saying.
The problem is as follows
cos Θ sec Θ = 1
The book gives me the solution which is
cos Θ sec Θ = 1 = 1
( 0 < Θ < π/2) (I guess this means Θ is an acute angle)
The book first gives the instruction, "transform one side of the equation into the other" (Which doesn't make any sense to me)
It also doesn't provide any specific angle it just states the following
The actual problem to be solved is...
The solution is...
"Simplify the expression on the left-hand side of the equation until you obtain the right side"
= = 1
