Simplify by referring to the appropriate triangle or trigonometric identity:


  • math -

    sketch a right-angled triangle with some angle Ø
    , label the opposite side x and the adjacent side 1
    (this way tanØ = x/1 , and Ø = arctan(x/1)
    the hypotenuse would be √(x^2 + 1)
    cosØ = 1/√(x^2+1)
