solve the first equation in each pair of equations or y and /or z. Then use the same strategy to solve the second equation for x in the interval 0<= x<= 2pie.

y^2= 1/3, tan^2x = 1/3

yz= y, tan x sec x = tanx

  • advanced functions -

    y^2 = 1/3
    y = ± 1/√3

    so tan^2 x = 1/3
    tanx = ± 1/√3
    so x could be in all 4 quadrants
    knowing the ratio of the 30-60-90 triangle is 1:√3:2
    x must be 30º or pi/6 radians
    so
    x = pi/6 in I
    x = pi - pi/6 = 5pi/6 in II
    x = pi + pi/6 = 7pi/6 in III
    x = 2pi - pi/6 = 11pi/6 in IV

    for tan x sec x = tanx
    divide by tanx
    secx = 1
    cosx = 1
    Where is the cosine graph 1 ?
    I will let you finish it.
