find cosx and sinx if tanx = 4

asked by rachel
  1. sin ( x ) = + OR / [ tan (x) /sqrt ( 1 + tan ^2 (x)]

    sin ( x ) = + OR - [ 4/ sqrt ( 1 + 4 ^2 ) ]

    sin ( x ) = + OR - m4/ sqrt ( 1 + 16 )

    sin ( x ) = + OR - 4/ sqrt ( 17)


    cos ( x ) = + OR / 1 /sqrt ( 1 + tan ^2 (x)

    cos( x ) = + OR - 1 / sqrt ( 17)


    If you want all trigonometric identities in google type:
