I have a test tommorow for Trigonometry and I'm very behind. I just don't get how

If i remember correctly cosecant (csc) is the inverse of tangent (tan).

maybe that helps...?

no cotangent is inverse tangent

csc is inverse sine

that may help..? idk how to do the problem sry

No csc(r/y) is the inverse of sin(y/r) and cos(x/r)

they give you 11/8 so the hypotenuse of the triangle is 11 and the y leg of the triangle is 8, find the x leg and plug it into the sign formula, put that into your calc, find the angle that is in the 2nd quadrant(90degrees-180degrees) and you are good to go.

hope that made sense

so you would get whatever cos^-1(sqrroot:57) would be for the answer to #7... make sure your calc is in radians. Dont forget that the angle is between pi/2 and pi.

For #5: Circumference is 2(pi)(radius) or pi(diameter). Area is pi(radius^2). isolate r in the area equation, so r = sqrroot:(area/pi). Now that you know what r equals, plug that in to the circumference equation, so you get: C = 2(pi)(sqrroot:(area/pi)).

Yeah cool tricks!!!

Okay i get that and it helped but when you get a problem like sin(cos^-1(-3/8))...How can you tell what quadrant it is in?

^ I always make the angle positive (not always required). If it isnt, add 2pi to the angle (in radians). make sure the number is in Quad 2 by being sure that the angle is between pi/2 (somewhere around 1.57) and pi (3.14...). if it isnt, subtract the angle from pi (to see the angle's proximity to the x-axis), then add that difference back to pi (to match that proximity, but on the other side of the x-axis).

Yeah cool tricks!!!

for 6b, you would are tryin to find angles where tan x = the angle where the tangent = x. lets try 0: tan 0=0 (0/1) and tan-1 (0) = 0 (at angle 0, the tangent = 0). This is not true for angle pi, because tan pi = 0. however, tan^-1 pi does not equal 0.

Yeah cool tricks!!!

^oh and make sure you make the answer 0+2(pi)k so the answer is applicable to an infinite domain.

for 6a, since we know that the tangent inverse of a number is equal to the angle where its tangent equals the number in the inverse (tan^-1(y)= x, tan x= y), x is an angle, and y is its tangent value. So the inverse of the tangent value of x will equal x. Because this equation is valid for all real numbers x (except at pi/2 and 3pi/2, because then tanx would be undefined), x belongs to the set of all real numbers. so you could say x does not equal (pi/2) + pi(k), so that the answer is applicable to an infinite domain.Hopefully that made sense.....

Yeah cool tricks!!!

Here are a few things that will help you out

Sin = (1/Csc)

Csc = (1/Sin)

Cos = (1/Sec)

Sec = (1/Cos)

Tan = (1/Cot)

Cot = (1/Tan)

Pi = 180 Degrees

(Pi / 2) = 90 Degrees

Sin is positive in the 1st and 2nd quadrents, therefore, Csc is positive in the 1st and 2nd quadrents

Oh and that "O" the line through it is the greek letter theta, which is just a variable, like x or y

That should help

In quadrant 1 all functions are +, in 2 sin and csc are +, in 3 tan and cot are +, in 4 cos and sec are +

Question 5 im not sure i understand or Question 6 since those are very specific rules for Tangent.

Question 6 is very simple though. co-secant is the reciprocal of sin (1/sin)

Therefore

csc (11/8) is the equivalent of 1/(11/8) or 8/11

now, sin^2+cos^2=1, That is a rule of trig

so

1-(11/8) gives you: -3/8

sqare root of that

there is your answer

I'm pretty sure you have to realize that csc x = radius/y and csc = hypotenuse/leg. So that means that the hypotenuse is 11, and one leg (y) is 8. Using the pythagorean theorem, the other leg is found to be sqrroot:57, that is, the x value is sqrroot:57. so now, if you have cos x (which equals x-value/hypotenuse) then the answer will be cos x = (sqrroot:57)/11.

C=2 x pi x r

A=pi x r x r

r= A/ (pi x r)

C= 2 x pi x A/(pi x r)

C=2A/r

r x r=A/pi

r = + or - sqroot(A/pi)

C= 2 x pi x A(pi x sqroot(A/pi))

Did I confuse you?

Circumference = 2πRadius

Area = π(Radius)^2

Radius = Area/(π x Radius)

Circumference = 2 x π x Area/(π x radius)

Circumference = 2 x Area / π

Radius x Radius = Area/π

Radius = +/- sqroot(Area/π)

Circumference = 2 x π x Area(π x sqroot(Area /π ))

Heres what this moron was getting at.

It's pretty easy if you somewhat pay attention. I mean i just don't pay attention at all in class and copy the homework off the answer key. It's hard to get a subject if you've never leanred it

thats exactly how i was in precalc last year. she never checked homework so i never did it and she was a terrible teacher so i failed every test

i only did well in the trig section because i'd learned it in A2

conic sections, trig functions, law of sines, all of that shit is actually pretty fun EXCEPT for fucking proofs with the identities
