    What's the problem with them? They are just reflected like so: http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt668/EM...s/cosecant.gif

    Can't remember the name and I don't have it with me, it's the big black one with c3 and c4 inside it

    They're just the 1/cos, 1/sin and 1/tan graphs? Unless I've misunderstood your question.

    What are the other identities like (sin50 = cos40), (cos50=sin40)? are there anymore that we need to know?

    for sec and cosec - sketch cos and sin and remember that sec and cosec 'sit on top of the graphs'. Also, refer your asymptotes - you cant divide by 0!! For cot - the arms of the graph cross over. Just keep looking at sketches and copy them out 5 or 6 times

    1 + cot^2(x) = cosec^2(x)
    1 + tan^2(x) = sec^2(x)

    Have they ever asked us to transform
    secant
    cosec
    cot
    graphs ???

    Im terrible at them, and both of them combined would be killer

    I'm stressing out more than I should. I get most things except finding the range and max/min values. I understand with simple questions, but I always get confused and I can't find max/min in the book! I get that you have to find the smallest value for the min. and if its say 4/12cos(x+a) you need to make denominator small as possible for positive min. value, but will they ever ask us to find the smallest possible negative min. value? am I just over-complicating things?

    I had a really terrible Chem exam yesterday, so now I feel like all my others will be the same even though edexcel have been fairly nice so far.

    Also there was a Q in june 2014 paper asking to find the range of (x+1)/(x-2), how am I supposed to know that's a transformed 1/x graph! I could see some familiarity but not enough to realise the graph etc. Looks like i'm so unprepared haha! Any help would be appreciated. Is there a Jan 2015 IAL paper at all?!

    is the answer any real number except 2?
    What paper is this
    Yes it is! Sorry, I was just ignoring part b, the denominator can't be 0 Thank you anyways.

    yes you do they can ask you to draw them
    and nobody wants to spend five minutes entering individual values on their calculator

    Them asking to draw inverse trig graphs is very very very very very very very very very very very very unlikely.
