precal

verify:
tanx secx = -2tanx

  • precal -

    Can't be verified, since it is a false statement

    test for any acute angle,
    left side would be always positive, both the tangent and sec are positive.
    But the right side is negative, not possible!

    Simplify (1+tanx)^2 The answer is (1-sinx)(1+sinx) Here's what I do: 1 + 2tanx + tan^2x When I simplify it becomes 1 + 2(sinx/cosx) + (1+secx)(1-secx) What am I doing wrong?
  10. Math

    Evaluate the integral of (secx)^2 * (tanx)^3 *dx I started out with letting u=secx and du=secx*tanx*dx , but then I am kind of stuck because I don't know how to factor out just secx*tanx?
