Sec^4X- sec^2X = 1/cot^4X + 1/cot^2X
RHS
1/cot^4X + 1/cot^2X
=1/(Cos^4X/Sin^4X) + 1/(Cos^2X/Sin^2X)
=Sin^4X/Cos^4X + Sin^2X/Cos^2X
=Sin^4X/Cos^4X + Cos^2X.Sin^2X/Cos^4X
=Sin^2X/Cos^4(Sin^2X + Cos^2X)
=Sin^2X/Cos^4X
=(1-Cos^2X)/Cos^4X
=1/Cos^4X - Cos^2X/Cos^4X
=1/Cos^4X - 1/Cos^2X
=Sec^4X - Sec^2X
=LHS

How do I solve (3x-2y)2(3xy-3)


First, we will find y in terms of x. We will use the first equation to determine this.
4x+2y=2
We can subtract 4x from both sides:
2y=2-4x
And then divide both sides of the equation by two:
y=1-2x
Since we now have y in terms of x, we can substitute this into our second equation.
-3x-y=-3
-3x-(1-2x)=-3
Then, we can distribute the minus sign
-3x-1+2x=-3
-x-1=-3
Next, we can add 1 to both sides of the equation.


-x=-2
Finally, we divide both sides by negative one to isolate x.
x=2
Now that we have x's value, we can find y's value.
The first thing that we determined is:
y=1-2x
We can substitute in the value of x to this equation.
y=1-2x
plot-formula.mpl?expression=y=1-2%2a2&x=0003
y=1-4
y=-3
Therefore, we now have the values of both variables.
x=2
y=-3

What is rational expression of (22x +11) (10x2 +5x)


I assume the 10x2 means 10 squared. (I will show it as 10x**2)
(22x+11)(10x**2+5x) factors into"
11(2x+1)*5(2x**2+1x)
=55(2x+1)(2x**2+1x)
=(55x)(2x+1)(2x+1)
Multiplied out, it becomes 55x(4x**2+4x+1)
= 220x**3 + 220x**2 + 55x

Csc(x)cot(x)/sec(x)


csc(x)=1/sin(x)
sec(x)=1/cos(x)
csc(x)/sec(x)=(1/sin(x))*(cos(x)=cot(x)
csc(x)*cot(x)/sec(x)=(cot(x))^2=(tan(x))^(-2)

2(3-x)+3(x-1)=4x


x equals 1

First multiply the numbers outside the parentheses by what is inside the parentheses, which results in:

6 - 2x + 3x - 3 = 4x

then combine what you can:

6 - 3 = 3,
-2x + 3x = 1x

which leaves:

3 + x = 4x

Subtract the x on the left from the 4x on the right and you get:

3 = 3x

Divide by 3 to get the x alone

3 / 3 = 1

x = 1

4x - 2x + 1 = 5 + x - 7


1. Combine like terms on the left side of =

4x-2x =2x

New left side is 2x + 1

2. Combine like terms on right side of =

5 - 7 = -2

New right side is x - 2

3. New problem is 2x + 1 = x - 2

4. Now get all x terms on left side of =
and all constants on right side of = by adding the opposites of the corresponding terms as you move them across the =

2x - x = -2 - 1

5. Combine the like terms on each side of the =

Left side: 2x - x = x and Right side: -2 -1 = -3

So x = -3

6. Now check your solution by substituting your answer back in to the original problem.

4(-3) - 2(-3) + 1 = 5 + (-3) -7

7. Now do the arithmatic and hopefully the left and right sides are equal.

-12 + 6 +1 = 5 -3 -7
-5 = -5

Since this is a true statement I know my answer of x = -3 is the correct solution to this problem.

4x-(2x-3)=0


4x-(2x-3)=0
=>4x-2x+3=0 ; (after the bracket's oepned and multiplied by - [minus])
=>2x+3=0 ; taken x as common and 4-2=2 i.e. x(4-2) = 2x
=>2x=-3 ; +3's moved on the right-hand side, so it becomes -3
=>x=-3/2 ; 2 has been moved to the right-hand side and divided with -3 i.e 1/2 multiplied by -3 = -3/2

Hence, x = -3/2


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

. x^3 - 4x^2 - 12x


Hii,you can use the following solution x^3 - 4x^2-12x=0 x(x^2-4x-12)=0 replacing -4x from -6x+2x x(x^2-6x+2x-12)=0
Now Factoring x(x(x-6) +2(x-6))=0 x(x-6)(x+2)=0 Solution is x=0, x-6=0,x+2=0 1) x=0 2) x-6=0 =>x=6 3) x+2=0 =>x=-2

(1+cotx-cosecx)(1+tanx+secx)=2


I shall attempt :D
1) cosec A + cot A = 3
we know that (cot A)^2 + 1 = (cosec A)^2
Hence, (cosec A)^2 - (cot A)^2 = 1
thus, (cosec A + cot A) (cosec A - cot A) = 1
3 (cosec A - cot A) = 1
(cosec A - cot A) = 1/3

(cosec A - cot A) = 1/3
(cosec A + cot A) = 3
Summing them, 2 cosec A = 3 1/3
cosec A = 6 2/3 = 5/3
sin A = 0.15
Thus, cos A = sqrt (1 - (sin A)^2) = 0.989


2) Prove that (1+tan x - sec x)(1 + cot x + cosec x) =2
expand
LHS= 1 + cot x + cosec x + tan x + 1 + tan x cosec x - sec x - sec x cot x - sec x cosec x
We can calculate that
tan x cosec x = sec x (since tan x = sin x / cos x)
sec x cot x = cosec x
so the above is
LHS = 1 + cot x + cosec x + tan x + 1 + sec x - sec x - cosec x - sec x cosec x
LHS = 2 + cot x + tan x - sec x cosec x
LHS = 2 + cos x / sin x + sin x / cos x - 1 / (sin x cos x)
LHS = 2 + [{cos x}^2 + {sin x}^2 - 1] / (sin x cos x)
LHS = 2 (proved)
