I posted this question before at 7:14
I think the answer to it is 0.
cot(40)  ((sin(50))/(sin(40)) = ?
these are also degrees
steps too please.
I thought since 50+40= 90 then that part would be 1, but then how would cot 40 turn out to be 1

sin50=cos40
then
ctn(40)cos/sin= ctn(40)ctn(40)=zilch 
thank you, now I understand

Hello all, In our math class, we are practicing the trigonometric identities (i.e., sin^2(x)+cos^2(x)=1 or cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x). Now, we are working on proofs that two sides of an equation are equal (for example, sin(x)*csc(x)=1; sin(x)csc(x)=sin(x)/sin(x)=1; …

Math differentiation
1. y = x^x 2. y = (sin^2xtan^4x)/(x^2+1)^2 3. y = x^(1/x) 4. y = 2^(x^3) Okay, so I'm pretty sure 1 is done easily: ln y = ln (x^x) ln y = x ln x d/dx ln y = d/dx x ln x y'(1/y) = x(1/x) + ln x(1) = 1 + ln x y'(1/y) = ln x + 1 y' …
