Prove the identity.

sin² θ = tan² θ / 1 + tan² θ

  • Math -

    I assume the right side is supposed to be tan² è /(1 + tan² è)

    Start by rewriting
    1 + tan^2 = (cos^2 + sin^2)/cos^2
    = 1 /cos^2
    so that
    1/(1+tan^2) = cos^2
    Therefore the right side becomes
    (sin^2/cos^2)* cos^2 = sin^2

  • Math -

    how did 1 + tan^2 become cos^2 + sin ^2?

  • Math -

    oh nevermind i got it thank you.
