**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at 5:01pmI worked it backwards, since the second equation was easier to solve

tan^2Ø + tanØ-6=0

(tanØ-2)(tanØ+3) = 0

tanØ = 2 or tanØ=-3

case1: tanØ=2, Ø could be in I or III

In I, sinØ = 2/√5 and cosØ = 1/√5

test in first equation

LS = 7(4/5) + (1/√5)(2/√5)

= 28/5 + 2/5 = 30/5 = 6 = RS

In III

sinØ = -2/√5 , cosØ = -1/√5

LS = 7(4/5) + (-2/√5)(-1/√5) = 30/5 = 6 = RS

Case 2: tanØ = -3, Ø could be in II or IV

in II , sinØ = 3/√10 , cosØ = -1/√10

testing in first equation,

LS = 7(9/10) + (-1/√10)((3/√10)

= 63/10 - 3/10 = 60/10 = 6 = RS

in IV, sinØ = -3/√10 , cosØ = 1/√10

LS = 7(9/10) + (1/√10)(-3/√10)

= 63/10 - 3/10 = 60/10 = 6 = RS

so all 4 values of Ø satisfy both equations.
