2 Homework Problems
I'd like to thank Chris for the help on my last post. I just have two more problems I could use assistance on and I'll be all set.

Find the values of all trigonometric functions of theta if tan (theta) = the square root of 7/3 and sec(theta) = 4/3 (Just the 7 is the square root)

Let x=3sin(theta), -pi/2<x<pi/2. Simplify the expression: x/square foot of 9 + x squared. (whole bottom is under square root.) I have put 3sin(theta) in for the x and the x squared, is this the right step? I just cannot get the hang of this! (Headbang) Thanks in advance for the help!

Constructing a triangle, we see that $\displaystyle \text{opp}=\sqrt{7}$, $\displaystyle \text{adj}=3$ and $\displaystyle \text{hyp}=4$

You can now easily find the values of the 4 remaining trigonometric functions.

Substituting this into the expression, we get $\displaystyle \frac{3\sin\vartheta}{\sqrt{9-9\sin^2\vartheta}}=\frac{3\sin\vartheta}{3\sqrt{1-\sin^2\vartheta}}=\frac{\sin\vartheta}{\sqrt{\cos^ 2\vartheta}}=\dots$

Can you take it from here?

hey mate, we are given that,

tan(A) = sqrt(7)/3 and sec(A) = 4/3
