is positive in the fourth quadrant (think CAST diagrams) but tan is negative there.

In either case, knowing that is positive is enough. Because .
3. Draw a right angle triangle, the sides will be length 7, 24 and 25. in the range is negative, draw a quick sketch of the tan curve if you don't understand this.

sin x = -7/25 -> sin^2x=49/625 -> cos^2x=576/625 -> cosx=+/-24/25. But 270<x<360, so by considering the cosine graph, cos is positive in this region, so cosx=24/25. Now tanx=sinx/cosx = (-7/25)/(24/25)=-7/24.

The day we learned about trigo graphs & cast diagrams I was ill.

The book sucks. Know of anywhere that I can learn this?

Must you keep posting unneeded and often crudely sarcastic comments on every thread? This really is unacceptable.

I am sorry you feel so...

The honour... By the way, your IYGB Special Papers are riddled with errors. For example, Paper Z Question 2. The fact that as written, the denominator is sqrt(x+sqrt(x^2-1)) makes it impossible. What was intended was presumably sqrt(x)+sqrt(x^2-1) (note that the two square roots are separate, rather than the second being within the first), which is indeed what you start out with in your solution. I could go on, but I'd rather not. Anyway mate, the point is whatever ego and perceived reputation you may have built up for yourself, you're a nobody. Have a good day!

you clearly have issues

Thanks!

Another question: Eliminate to give an equation relating x and y:

c) ,

Would this be ok?

I don't know how to extend the square root in latex but you catch my drift

1. If you want to extend the square root use \sqrt{1-y}, i.e: put the curly braces around it.

2. That would be okay, I suppose...

3. It's a very ugly answer, is the same thing and looks much nicer, but I doubt you'd lose marks for writing down what you have. So yes, it's perfectly correct.

Oi, I'm an A-Level student just like yourself!

Did you have a bad day ?
I remember you lost it again in another thread the other day ...
How old are you please, if you do not mind me asking?

If I consider you an A level student, it will just lower my self - esteem.

I mean, I've been trying to grow a beard for 6 months but you make it seem light work.

Nah, don't be silly. I'd wager your results will be better than mine, for real.

Seriously though, it's great that you're coming on here and asking questions, shows that you want to understand everything and that's going to get you far.

I do mind you asking. Also what "different username?" I demand that you desist from these libellous accusations at once.
