I know the identities by hard. My problem is when its in fraction form with a radical. When do you multiply by conjugate and when not? (See picture for problem with tangent)

Second problem I tried to use sine of sum identity (picture with words)

tan 195 = tan ( 180 + 15) = tan 15

use tan 15= tan(45-30)

and get ur answer.... - Jun 29th 2013, 09:44 PMmpx86Re: Sum and Didderence Identities w/Pictures
sin(A+B)=sinA cosB +cosA sinB

sin A= 3/5

sin B =5/13

as A is in second quadrant

therefore cos will be negative

cos A = -4/5

cos B =12/13

can u find sin (A+B) now? - Jun 29th 2013, 10:27 PMibduttRe: Sum and Didderence Identities w/Pictures

You probably used the Sine pythag identity

I got it now thanks.
