**Trig**

(sin/cos)/ ( 1/cos - 1) = I'm stumped
*January 8, 2012*

**Trig**

The question says: Set up a 2 column proof to show that each of the following equations is an identity. Transform the left side to become the right side. (tan + cot)^2 = sec^2 + csc^2
*January 8, 2012*

**Trig**

Hi Damon .. apparently they want the right side to stay "as is" and for the left side to transform into exactly what the right side says .... sorry
*January 8, 2012*

**Trig**

Proving Identities: 2 columns (tan + cot)^2 = sec^2 + csc^2 I'm having trouble breaking down the left side to = the right side.. Any help please
*January 8, 2012*

**Trig**

ARGHHHHH now that really was a brain fart on my part ... Thanks a lot Reiny for the help Don
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

(x+0)^2 + (y+4)^2 = 17 the center would be (0,4) I can't see it any other way ...arghhhh
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

I'm not sure what your looking for Reiny. It looks like the center of the circle is still (0,4) what am I doing wrong?
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

the center of a circle x^2 + y^2 + 8y =1 is a. (0,-2) b. (0,4) c. (0,1) d. (0,-4) I believe the answer is (0,4) Am I correct ?
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

The center of the circle (x+2)^2 + (y-3)^2 =1 is a. (2,3) b. (-2,3) c. (2,-3) d. (-2,-3) I believe b. is the answer, is that correct?
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

The radius of: (x+2)^2 + (y-3)^2 =9 is 3 is this correct?
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

If the center of a circle is at (2,2) with a radius of 4 the equation of the graph would be : a) (x-2)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 16 b) (x+2)^2 + (y+2)^2 = 16 I think it would be b is that correct?
*January 4, 2012*

**Trig**

Oops, brain fart ... answer is -4/5 i guess it was a long day ... thanks anyway .. Don

*January 1, 2012*

**Trig**

Found my mistake .... All is good now Thanks for the help earlier Damon Don
*December 27, 2011*

**Trig**

If sinx = 1/4 Find the exact value of cos2x I used the formula for double angle identities : cos2x = 1-2sin^2x and got the answer 1/2 The book says the answer is 7/8 How would they get to that conclusion?
*December 27, 2011*

**Trig**

The answer is 1/8 Is that correct Damon ?
