Please help!!!!!! cosx-sin^2x-1

  • Math - ,

    So what is the question and I suspect you have a typo

  • Math - ,

    I always get confused working out this problem because I keep getting the wrong answer. cosine of x- sin squared x-1

  • Math - ,

    and it needs me to write the expression in factored form as an algebraic expression of a single trigonometric function.

  • Math - ,

    sin^2 x = 1 - cos^2 x

    cos x - (1-cos^2 x) - 1

    cos x - 2 + cos^2 x

    cos^2 x + cos x - 2

    as you wrote it

    perhaps you mean

    cos x - (sin^2 x -1)

    cos x - (1 -cos^2 x - 1)

    cos x + cos^2 x

    cos x (cos x + 1)

  • Math - ,

    Where did you get the 1-cosine squared from?

  • Math - ,

    Find an algebraic expression equivalent to the given expression. sine (tan inverse of u/2)

  • Math - ,

    For the problem cosine of x-sine squared x-1 the choices are A)sine squared x, B) (cot x+1)(cot x-1), C) (cos x+2)(sin x-1), D)(sin x+2)(sin x-1)

  • Math - ,

    sin^2 x + cos^2 x = 1 identity
    so
    sin^2 x = 1 - cos^2 x

  • Math - ,

    (cos/sin +1)(cos/sin-1) = cos^2/sin^2 - 1

    ====================================
    sin[ tan^-1(u/2) ]

    right triangle
    opposite = u
    adjacent = 2

    so hypotenuse = sqrt(u^2 +4)
    so

    sin = u/sqrt(u^2+4)

    or [u sqrt (u^2+4)] / (u^2+4)

  • Math - ,

    Thank you for your help. Can you please delete all the questions I have typed in today?
