Wow! You actually want somebody to do that assignment for you, without showing any effort on your part?
I will start off with #2, then you let us know some of your steps and work
use cos 2A = 1 - 2sin^2 A
then cos x = 1 - 2sin^2 x/2
4/5 = 1 - 2sin^2 x/2
solve for sin x/2
you will end up with sin x/2 = ±1/√10
but you are told that x is in quadrant IV, so x/2 must be in quadrant II and
sin x/2 = 1/√10
Ok, so because sin=opp/hyp and sec=hyp/adj it will be √10/
no, because I solved the equation 4/5 = 1 - 2sin^2 x/2
2sin^2 x/2 = 1 - 4/5
sin^2 x/2 = 1/10
take √ of both sides
sin x/2 = ± 1/√10
why are you talking about secant?
the problem dealt only with sines and cosines.
