    Finding solutions of an equation

    Find all of the solutions of the equation cos(56°-3x)=-0.785 where 0° ≤ x ≤ 360° I've been able to find one soloution using x = (56 - arccos(-0.785)) / 3. But I'm unable to find any others. Thanks in advance for any help

    Trigonometric Ratios

    Hi, I hope someone can help. The question that I'm working on is 3c: I currently see there being two methods towards solving this question. I need guidance on which method is the correct one, and explaining why this the correct method. Method 1 - I use my calculator. For example, sin(7pi/4)...

    Having trouble with proving a trig identity

    Hi, I'm working on a trigonometry unit at the moment, and after going through the current lesson several times I still feel like I'm missing some things. I'm working on proving an identity right now that has me stumped, I tried resorting to using an online solver but in the steps it is telling...

    Pilot and wind velocity vector help

    A pilot needs to fly 35 degrees east of north. He's flying at a speed of 105 miles per hour at fixed altitude with no wind. When he reaches a point, he encounters wind with a velocity of 15 miles per hour in the direction 10 degrees east of north. Express the velocity of the wind W as a vector...

    Trig equation over specified interval

    2sin(x-7) + 6 = cos(2x-10) + 8 Solutions in [6,14] I don't even know where to begin. If there wasn't a constant I would set it to 0 and try sum to product then find zeros. Then there's dealing with the applied interval. Ken T. Also did a rough sketch to make sure it wasn't a trick...

    integration of trig function

    Integrate sin(wt)sin(wt+s) Answer: (1/2)tcos(s) - (1/4w)sin(2wt+s)+c I would appreciate even a tip of how to start it correctly. I tried a lot to do this, but I can't find the correct answer.

    Find Fourier coefficients of g(x) = f(2x)

    Hi, I have the following problem: Assume that the function is -periodic and has the Fourier series: Find the Fourier coefficients of the function g(x) = f(2x) As far as I understood, the Fourier coefficients of this function can not be a number, because we don't have the function...

    Some questions to do with trig identities (I think)

    I have no idea how to do this stuff so here I am. I need to simplify these three problems: sin^2θ+sec^2θ+tan^2θ+cos^2θ x+sin^2xsecx (cscx+1)(cscx-1)

    Trig substitution

    Whitman 8.3.6 $\displaystyle I= \int x^2 \sqrt{1-x^2 } \ dx = \arcsin\left({x}\right)/8-\sin\left({4\arcsin\left({x}\right)}\right)/32+C $ As given by book answer. $$x=\sin\left({u}\right)\ \ \ dx=-\cos\left({u}\right) \ du$$ so then $$\displaystyle I=\int\sin^2 \left({u}\right) \cos^2...

    What is this odd looking symbol I found in my 10th ed.lial and hornsby trig book?

    I was reading through my lial and hornsby trigonometry book and in section 3.2 I came across a new symbol. I looked across all of the greek alphabet and none of them are quite similar enough for me to come to the conclusion that they are the same letter I'm looking at. I don't expect it to be a...
