Homework Help: Maths

Posted by Shym on Sunday, June 3, 2007 at 4:29am.

Hi, can someone give me the answer to this question:
secA-tanA=1/4. Find cosA

I got: CosA=4(1-sinA) Is my answer good?




Now multply each side by (1+sinA)
CosA(1+sinA)=4 cos^2 A
CosA=1/4 (1+sinA)

16(1-sinA)=1+sinA
15=17SinA
So you have sinA, now find Cos A from your equation you originally solved.
