Make the trigonometric substitution x = a tan θ for −π/2 < θ < π/2 and a > 0

Simplify the resulting expression: x^2/sqrt(a^2+x^2).   I actually have no idea how to go about solving this at all. If anyone could be kind enough to explain this to me step by step, I'll be... more

What expression is equal to tan(arccos(2x))?

I feel like the answer is sqrt(1-4x^2)/2x (The square root is only over the 1-4x^2). I'm just asking for confirmation because I only have a limited amount of tries to submit a problem and I want to... more

Find all exact solutions of the equation tan(3x)=sqrt3 in the interval [0,π)

I got the answer of π/9, but I'm not so sure about it. I'm not the strongest in this unit so far so any explanation would be greatly appreciated.

Find all exact solutions of the equation tan(x)=-1 in the interval [0,2π]

I got the answer of -π/4 +- πn and -3π/4 +- πn. Is this the correct answer? I'm asking because I think it's right, but I only have a limited number of tries to submit it.

Write the equation as a function of x in the form y = a sin(bx + c) for a > 0, b > 0, and the least positive real number c.?

(http : // www . webassign . net/waplots/5/9/3db62208ecce8388e36f5fcdec8fe3.gif) image here I know that the amplitude is 5 and the period is 3pi (I think, correct me if I'm wrong), but how do I... more

What are the possible values of the angle θ if (cos(θ))^2=1/2 and sin(θ)=-sqrt2/2 (Only the numerator is under the square root)

The values of θ are in radians and are between 0 and 2π . Enter your answer in exact form.   I needed to enter in a smaller value and a larger value. However, I got the answers of pi/4 and 3pi/4... more

Determine the set of values of x where the function y=cos(x) is increasing where −2π < x < 2π.

(Do not include the endpoints of the intervals, and all intervals should be open intervals on all endpoints)   I don't really understand the instructions here. This is one of a few extra credit... more

An arc on a circle subtends a central angle of "theta"=1/2pi radians, and the area of the sector is 98 cm^2.

(Determine the radius, r centimeters, of the circle. Write an exact number as an integer, fraction, or decimal.)   I'm very confused about arcs and angles and whatnot. I'm doing extra credit, but... more

A parabola has a vertex at (2,4). The y-coordinate of the parabola at x=3 is 18/6 . Determine the x-intercepts of the parabola. Enter your answer in exact form

I need to find what the smaller and larger x intercepts are, but I'm not sure how to do that (and it's a homework question with a topic that hasn't yet been covered in class) From what I've been... more

Farmer Brown has 300 yards of fencing with which to build a rectangular corral. He wants to divide it evenly into three pens, so he adds in two divider fences.

a) Write the area of the corral as function of x, so A(x)=? b) Determine the maximum area enclosed by the corral. (Decimal approximations are marked incorrect.) So the maximum area equals how many... more
