    Integral of (cosx+sinx)^2dx

    I did this but not sure if it is correct: ∫(cosx+sinx)^2dx= ∫(cos^2x+2cosxsinx+sin^2x)= ∫(2cosxsinx)= 2∫cosxsinx= 2sinx-cosx+C <--------End

    2 equations 2 unknowns

    Please help me understand step by step how to solve this problem. I have 2 formula's with 2 unknows: 0.4*cos(a) - 0.3*cos(b) = 0.49 0.4*sin(a) - 0.3*sin(b) = -0.04 I have tried allot of things but i can't solve the problem :-( The teacher has given me the answer, so i can check that i get it...

    cos x + sin x = 2x

    I have two questions I can't figure out. 1. Solve on the interval 0 <= theta < 2pi 3 cot^2 theta - 4 csc theta = 1 2. Says solve using a calculator on the same interval. Round to two decimals. Cos x + sin x = 2x

    solve cos z = cosh z in complex numbers

    Can someone help with this? Wolfram Alpha gives solution but I don't know how they come up with it. I know cosh z = cos iz and cosh iz = cos z but that doesn't help me here.

    4 positive real-number values of t for which cos t=0

    List four positive real-number values of t for which cos t=0 So we know that cosine is the x-axis. So cosine at 0, and they want me to list four positive real number values? So It could be 0,0 , 0, pi/2, 0,pi , and 3pi/2 The answer in the book has pi/2, 3pi/2, 5pi/2, 7pi/2...

    hypotenuse, adjacent, opp for cos 90+theta or sin 90 + theta.

    How do you choose hypotenuse, opposite and adjacent side for cos 90+theta or sin 90 + theta in a circle? Similarly for sin 180- theta or cos 180 - theta in a circle.

    IVT and Cos

    Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to show that there is a root of the given equation in the specified interval. 1). cos x = x. (0,1) 2) sin x = x^2 -x. (1,2) I'm confused by the equations. Don't you take sin and cos of an angle in radians? How can cos x = x? How would I solve the problems?

    Geometric Series Cos

    The question I'm looking at is: \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{cos\left(n\pi\right)}{2^n} Find if converge or diverge and if converge find the sum. The only things I have learned so far about series is the nth term test and geometric series. So my first attempt is to is if it diverges using the nth...

    Computing sin and cos

    Hi there, My task is writing an algorithm to calculate sin and cos(theta) based on a technique. I think i'll be able to handle the programming side, my issue is in understanding what it is exactly the program needs to do. As I understand it, the x and y coordinates for a particular angle...

    Trigonometric Identities

    Need help understanding the question: If sin t=c, 0 < t < pi/2, find in terms of c: (a) sin(pi-t) (b) cos(-t) Do I need to use this type of function?: sin(a-b) = sin(a)cos(b) - cos(a)sin(b) And how would state my answer that it is 0 < t < pi/2 Thanks
