trig

posted by .

I'm trying to see if the teacher didn't give us the right problem or if I'm just not getting it. The problem is "re-write the expression without a fraction: 4/(1-sin x)". I can do it if the problem is sin squared x but I don't know how to solve the problem given. Pls help. thx

  • trig -

    multiply by (1+sinx)/(1+sinx) which is really 1, so you are not changing the value, only the appearance.

    4/(1-sin x)[(1+sinx)/(1+sinx)] to get
    4(1+sinx)/(1 - sin^2 x)
    = 4(1+sinx)/cos^2 x
    = 4(sec^2 x)(1 + sinx)
