Tan (a + b) = (5/12 -1/sqrt3) / 1 - (5/12)(-1/sqrt3)

1. Prove that cotx/(1+tan(-x)) + tanx/(1+cot(-x)) = cotx+tanx+1 2. Prove that (sinx+tanx)/(1+secx) = sinx

Find all solutions in the interval [0,2pi): cos2x + 5cosx = 2

We have been working on proving identities and it's a subject I just can't get my brain around. A few of the problems we've been given have made me stumble. cotx/1+tan(-x) + tanx/1+cot(-x) = cotx + tanx +1 I figure on this one, with using identities, I can get: cotx/1-tanx + tanx/1-cotx = cotx + tanx +1 But I can't g

1. A surveyor is measuring the distance across a small lake. He has set up his transit on one side of the lake 130 feet from a piling that is directly across from a pier on the other side of the lake. From his transit, the angle between the piling and the pier is 55(degrees). What is the distance between the piling and the p

I am having difficulty using the epsilon/delta definition....even difficulty when not using it. There's a problem which reads as follows: find the limit as x approaches 0 of (cosx-1)/x^2. The main reason as to why I am having difficulty without using the epsilon/delta definition is because I simply am confused what to do when
