2________6______2_____6

  • trig -

    cos ( theta ) - tan ( theta) = 0

    tan ( theta ) = sin (theta ) / cos( theta )

    cos ( theta ) - tan ( theta ) =0

    cos ( theta ) = tan ( theta )

    cos ( theta ) = sin ( theta ) / cos ( theta )

    cos^2 ( theta) = sin ( theta )

    Now go on:

    When page be open in rectangle type :

    solve cos^2 ( theta) = sin ( theta )

    and click =

    After few seconds you will see solution.

  • trig -

    cosØ - tanØ = 0
    cosØ - sinØ/cosØ = 0
    multiply by cosØ
    cos^2Ø - sinØ = 0
    (1 - sin^2Ø) - sinØ = 0
    sin^2Ø + sinØ - 1 = 0
    sinØ = (-1 ± √5)/2
    sinØ = .618034 or -1.608 , the last is not possible since sinØ has to be between -1 and +1
    Ø = 38.17° from my calculator (or 141.83°)

    All your choices are in radians in multiples of π/2, π/4 or π/6
    which would be multiples of 90°, 45° or 30°

    None of these match,

    btw, my answers satisfies the original equation.
