# Maths trigonometry help watch

1. Can someone help me with these questions as we've never done examples involving a function on both sides:

2 sin(theta) = 3 cos(theta)
and
2 - cos(theta) = 2 sin^2(theta)

Shorten theta=x if you want

For the second one, can you think of a trig identity linking , and ?

honestly all we've done on these graphs is finding the answers when given an example. We haven't learnt anything like that so I'm not so sure why they set us this homework

Oh, wow I see.

So you've not covered any trig identities?

No, we haven't. I think I'm just going to leave this homework until we actually learn it, thanks for the help anyway
6. What are the odds, we learnt it today. We had the homework set on Monday for friday then it turns out they set us the wrong homework
