The answer in the book is itself an inverse trigonometric function....actually the answer is in the order of arc sec......but i don't know the way to proceed.
Hello, tariq_h_tauheed! Write in simplest form: . Let: . is in a right triangle with: Code: * * | x * | * | 1 * | * θ | * - - - - - - - - * √(x²-1) Using Pythagorus, we get: . Then: . Therefore: . . . (simplest form ) .
* * | x * | * | 1 * | * θ | * - - - - - - - - * √(x²-1)
