I need to count this:
a) 1-tg^2a/1+ctg^2a, when sina =2/3
b) 1-tg^2a/1-ctg^2a, when cosa= -1/3
c) tga * cos^2a, when sina + cosa=5/7
d) tg^2a + 1/sina * 1/cosa + ctg^2a, when tga + ctga =5

  • trig -

    a) if sina = 2/3 then tana = 2/√5 and cota = √5/2
    So, 1-tan^2 / 1+cot^2 = (1-4/5)/(1+5/4) = 1/5 / 9/4 = 4/45

    b) cosa = -1/3 means tana = √8 and cota = 1/√8
    so, 1-tan^2 / 1-cot^2 = (1-8)/(1 - 1/8) = -7 / 7/8 = -8

    c) If sina + cosa = 5/7 then
    (sina + cosa)^2 = 25/49
    sin^2a + 2sins cosa + cos^2a = 25/49
    1 + 2 sina cosa = 25/49
    2 sina cosa = -24/49

    Now, tana * cos^2a = sina cosa = -12/49

    d) tana + cota = 5

    (tana + cota)^2 = tan^2 + cot^2 + 2 = 25
    so, tan^2a + cot^2a = 23

    tana + cota = 5
    sina/cosa + cosa/sina = 5
    (sin^2a + cos^2a)/(sina cosa) = 5
    1/(sina cosa) = 5

    tan^2a + 1/sina * 1/cosa + cot^2 a
    = tan^2a + cot^2a + 1/(sina cosa)
    = 23 + 5 = 28
