Formatting might be off but its asking to show that :

tanxcosx-sin(x)cos^2(x)= (sinx+cos^3(x))/tanx == tan^2x - tanx -1 = 0

Formatting might be off but its asking to show that :

tanxcosx-sin(x)cos^2(x)= (sinx+cos^3(x))/tanx == tan^2x - tanx -1 = 0

You might want to express everything in terms of sin and cos and aim for getting the final result in that form. Probably the (slightly) simpler way to go in this case.

1) multiply by tan(x) ....

As per the sticky at the top of the forum, its best to post a hint or two (not full solutions) and let the OP do as much as possible themselves. Could you pls delete?

Hello , would u be able to outline the steps u took again because I cannot find the worked solutions for this anywhere

Original post by sreeeeyas

I’ve done this but I just cannot manage to convert all my terms into tan no matter what.

If youre converting to sin and cos, you could note that the desired result is basically

sin^2 - sin*cos - cos^2 = 0

can you see a way to get to that? If you take the RHS over youll see you have 4 terms so one must "disappear". Also, at the start you could divide each of the two terms by tan (sin/cos), rather than multiplying through by tan. Overall it shouldnt be more than half a dozen lines.

Upload what youve tried if you still cant get it.
