    Can someone pls explain me how to plot a cos^2(x)/sin^2(x)/tan^2(x) graph? Because there was a question that i had to find the finite area between a cos^2(x) graph and the positive axis and the line (pi/3) using trapezium rule.

    Also, when a question appears of find the values of x for which so, and so graph has an increasing function, i know that the first derivative is mean to be greater than zero, BUT is it greater than or equal to zero?? If i forget the line under ">" will i be penalized in an exam? coz i was taught it didnt have the line, now I dont knw

    What the hell?? I meant when you plot for instance the curve of cos^2 (x), how is it done? i.e. do you press cos twice the x's, or do you square the x then press cos or wht do you do?

    cos^2x is just the accepted way of writing (cosx)^2, so you would plot it like a normal cosx graph but just square your values on the y-axis.

    Actually it's undefined. Is 1/2/3 equal to (1/2)/3 = 16 or 1/(2/3) = 3/2 ?
