  • Again, thanks all for leaving such nice comments, I'm so glad you found this useful... I made a quick video on the problem @jeserycabansag posted, it's handwritten and it's been a while since I've done one of these but I hope it will still be helpful... http://www.educreations.com/lesson/view/another-trig-equation-solved/9464621/?s=mUeOfh&ref=appemail

  • @jeserycabansag sec + tan is the same as saying 1/cos + sin/cos
    find the common denominator which will be cos . treat it like a fraction . so 1+sin over the common denominator which is cos. since cos into cos times 1 = 1 . and cos into cos times sin = sin. therefore your answer will be 1+sin/cos

  • @jeserycabansag
    separate them out like 1/cosx +sinx/cosx

Transcript

  • 1. TRIGONOMETRY Proving Trigonometric Identities
  • 2. REVIEW Quotient Identities Reciprocal Identities Pythagorean Identities
  • 3. Let’s start by working on the left side of the equation….
  • 4. Rewrite the terms inside the second parenthesis by using the quotient identities
  • 5. Simplify
  • 6. To add the fractions inside the parenthesis, you must multiply by one to get common denominators
  • 7. Now that you have the common denominators, add the numerators
  • 8. Simplify
  • 9. Since the left side of the equation is the same as the right side, you’ve successfully proven the identity!
  • 10. On to the next problem….
  • 11. Let’s start by working on the left side of the equation….
  • 12. We’ll factor the terms using the difference of two perfect squares technique
  • 13. Using the Pythagorean Identities the second set of parenthesis can be simplified
  • 14. Since the left side of the equation is the same as the right side, you’ve successfully proven the identity!
  • 15. On to the next problem….
  • 16. Let’s start by working on the right side of the equation….
  • 17. Multiply by 1 in the form of the conjugate of the denominator
  • 18. Now, let’s distribute in the numerator….
  • 19. … and simplify the denominator
  • 20. ‘ Split’ the fraction and simplify
  • 21. Use the Quotient and Reciprocal Identities to rewrite the fractions
  • 22. And then by using the commutative property of addition…
  • 23. … you’ve successfully proven the identity!
  • 24. One more….
  • 25. Let’s work on the left side of the equation…
  • 26. Multiply each fraction by one to get the LCD
  • 27. Now that the fractions have a common denominator, you can add the numerators
  • 28. Simplify the numerator
  • 29. Use the Pythagorean Identity to rewrite the denominator
  • 30. Multiply the fraction by the constant
  • 31. Use the Reciprocal Identity to rewrite the fraction to equal the expression on the right side of the equation
