**Anonymous**, Monday, August 15, 2011 at 2:08amcos ( theta ) - tan ( theta) = 0

tan ( theta ) = sin (theta ) / cos( theta )

cos ( theta ) - tan ( theta ) =0

cos ( theta ) = tan ( theta )

cos ( theta ) = sin ( theta ) / cos ( theta )

cos^2 ( theta) = sin ( theta )

Now go on:

wolframalpha dot com

When page be open in rectangle type :

solve cos^2 ( theta) = sin ( theta )

and click =

After few seconds you will see solution.

Then click option Show steps

**Reiny**, Monday, August 15, 2011 at 8:48amcosŲ - tanŲ = 0

cosŲ - sinŲ/cosŲ = 0

multiply by cosŲ

cos^2Ų - sinŲ = 0

(1 - sin^2Ų) - sinŲ = 0

sin^2Ų + sinŲ - 1 = 0

sinŲ = (-1 ± √5)/2

sinŲ = .618034 or -1.608 , the last is not possible since sinŲ has to be between -1 and +1

Ų = 38.17° from my calculator (or 141.83°)

All your choices are in radians in multiples of π/2, π/4 or π/6

which would be multiples of 90°, 45° or 30°

None of these match,

btw, my answers satisfies the original equation.
