    hey guys i was doing a question and got stuck.... could you help?

    if cosA=3/5 and sinB=5/13, where A is acute and B is obtuse, find the exact value of..

    1) cos(A+B)

    2) tan(A-B)

    3) sin(A+B)

    really frustrated at that obtuse thing, any help?

    Here you go basically you take the negative value of the obtuse angle as the acute: see my working here is it correct?? :/Name:  sin A.jpg

    If you have to put an equation into Cartesian form do you have to rearrange to get y on it's own or can you leave x's and y's on same side?

    Hi guys when I put in ×=-0.1 I got root5/2 (Q4)

    So multiplied the number I got by 2 but I'm getting 2.215 instead of 2.23 any help?

    Also out of all topics this is the one that always seems to stump me along with trig identities but any tips on how to approach these binomial questions???

    Thanks in advance...

    Why are the Jan. grade boundaries so much higher than all the June ones? They're like 10 marks different

    Also what's the highest grade boundaries that a Summer Core 4 exam has ever been? Thanks in advance to anyone who answers

    Hi do you have any resources that explain all this stuff properly my idea is that when it's obtuse it's the same angle but the cosine and tan are negative as the X axis is going in the other direction???? What about obtuse I think that might come up!!!!
