1. The period of a sine or cosine curve
= 360°/k , where k is the coeffiecient of the angle

y = sin 2x , k = 2
period = 360°/2
= 180°

period = 2π/k = 2π/2 = π

do the others the same way.

Where do I start to prove this identity: sinx/cosx= 1-cos2x/sin2x please help!! Hint: Fractions are evil. Get rid of them. Well, cos2x = cos2x - sin2x, so 1-coscx = 1 - cos2x - sin2x = 1 - cos2x + sin2x You should be able to

2sin(x)cos(x)+cos(x)=0 I'm looking for exact value solutions in [0, 3π] So I need to find general solutions to solve the equation. But do I eliminate cos(x), like this... 2sin(x)cos(x)+cos(x)=0 2sin(x)cos(x)= -cos(x) 2sin(x) = -1
