  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
    using your calculator ....
    x = 31.72° or 211.72°

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

    #6, 10, 17,
    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°)
