**bobpursley**, Monday, July 11, 2011 at 2:27pmlet x be 45 deg

(cos180-cos90)/(sin180+sin90)=-1/(1)=-1

so none of the answers are correct, as ctn(45), tan(45), ctn(45)*tan(45), or 1 are not equal to -1

another angle: let x be 30 deg

(cos120-cos60)/(sin120+sin(60)=(-.5-.5)/(.866+.866)=-.577

lets check given answers:

ctn30=1.73

tan30=.577

ctn30*tan30=1

1

none of these are equal to -.577
