decimal places.

6.Prove that tan y cos^2 y + sin^2y/sin y = cos y + sin �y

10.Prove that 1+tanθ/1-tanθ = sec^2θ+2tanθ/1-tan^2θ

17.Prove that sin^2w-cos^2w/tan w sin w + cos w tan w = cos w-cot w cos w

1. 1.
Some students like to look at these types the following way:
let tanx = y, to get
y^2 + y - 1 = 0
by formula ...
y = (-1 ± √5)/2
so tanx = (-1 ± √5)/2
x = 31.72° or 211.72°

or tanx = (-1 - √5)/2
x = 121.72° or 301.72°

establish correct order of operation, by using brackets.

#23
just pick any angle you want and use your calculator
or pick a = 30°, (you should know the trig values for 30°)
