1. tan A = 1/cotA

1/cotA^2 = sin^2A/cos^2A
= (1 - cos^2A)/cos^2A
= [1/cos^2A] - 1

1 + (1/cot^2A) = 1/cos^2A

sec^2A = 1 + (1/cot^2A)

The sign of secA will depend upon the quadrant A is in

Hi, can someone give me the answer to this question: secA-tanA=1/4. Find cosA I got: CosA=4(1-sinA) Is my answer good? Now multply each side by (1+sinA) CosA(1+sinA)=4 cos^2 A CosA=1/4 (1+sinA) 16(1-sinA)=1+sinA 15=17SinA So you
