GENERAL SOLUTION:

Connect Along with FACTORING, we can use the quotient, reciprocal, Pythagorean, addition/subtraction and doubleangle identities provided on the formula sheet to help algebraically solve trig equations. We can verify an equation’s solutions graphically. Although we can graph in radian mode (and experiment with the window to “see” points of intersect / zeros), it is often easier to graph in degree mode and convert solutions to radians. (if necessary) Consider the equation Graph in radian mode: Graph in degree mode:

If we scale “carefully” (in this case ) we can “see” the solutions are

Again with a scale of

we “see” the solutions are

, and

, and

**. (same once converted!)
**

…And if we use the “zero” or “intersect” function on our graphing calc we get the degree answers which are easily convertible!

First solution is …

…But if we use the “zero” or “intersect” function on our graphing calc we get the radian answers in irrational decimal form, not as exact values in terms of

First solution is …

But calc gives the decimal version of !

Which we can easily convert from !

We must watch for non-permissible values when our equations involve quotient terms. Solve on

Algebraic approach to determining non-permissible values:

**Solutions are But non-permissible values are then every (at vertical asymptotes)
