1.
Some students like to look at these types the following way:
let tanx = y, to get
y^2 + y  1 = 0
by formula ...
y = (1 ± √5)/2
so tanx = (1 ± √5)/2
using your calculator ....
x = 31.72° or 211.72°
or tanx = (1  √5)/2
x = 121.72° or 301.72°
#6, 10, 17,
establish correct order of operation, by using brackets.
#23
just pick any angle you want and use your calculator
or pick a = 30°, (you should know the trig values for 30°)
