sin function is a periodic function that its period is it means after intervals the curve will be repeated and sin of the angles also will be reapted after one cycle of was completed; and after n iterval it can be calculted like this:
Hello everyone, I have a question
solve for all degrees and theta if 0 degrees <= theta < 360 degrees
I how its 1/2 and I know they used the unit circle for the answer the answer is 30 + 360k, 150 + 360k(the first part). I want to know were the 360 came from. Why do I need it in my answer? and how can I use this to find out cot, tan, sec, csc, cos?
so your ref angle is 30 or pi/6
becuase the question give you a domain for the value of x. you can only find answer within this domain. In your case is 1 positive full rotation.
sin in Q1 and Q2 have + value.
so your x values are:
x=30, and x=150
sin , cos and tan have two + values in 1 positive full rotation.
sin in Q1 and Q2
cos in Q1 and Q4
tan in Q1 and Q3
if your question ask you find answer from 0<x<90
you only can have x=30. Not x=150, because it is over the domain.
