# What does 1 divided by sin x look like?

1/sin(x) is also known as cosec(x).

It looks a bit like a U, starting at "infinity" when x = 0, bottoming out at 1 when x = pi/2 radians and then returning to "infinity" at x = pi. Next, it is an upside down U, below the axis and peaking at -1: between x = pi and 2*pi. These U shapes alternate.

You can use the L'hopital's rule to calculate the limit of e5x -1 divided by sin x as x approaches 0.

Assuming the question refers to [sin(x)]/2 rather than sin(x/2) the answer is 1.

Since sin(theta) = 1/cosec(theta) the first two terms simply camcel out and you are left with 1 divided by tan(theta), which is cot(theta).

sin (theta) = [13* sin (32o)]/8 = 13*0.529919264/8 = 0.861118804 [theta] = sin-1 (0.861118804) [theta] = 59.44o

cot(x)=1/tan(x)=1/(sin(x)/cos(x))=cos(x)/sin(x) csc(x)=1/sin(x) sec(x)=1/cos(x) Therefore, (csc(x))2/cot(x)=(1/(sin(x))2)/cot(x)=(1/(sin(x))2)/(cos(x)/sin(x))=(1/(sin(x))2)(sin(x)/cos(x))=(1/sin(x))*(1/cos(x))=csc(x)*sec(x)

It helps to convert this kind of equation into one that has only sines and cosines, by using the basic definitions of the other functions in terms of sines and cosines. sin x / (1 - cos x) = csc x + cot x sin x / (1 - cos x) = 1 / sin x + cos x / sin x Now it should be easy to do some simplifications: sin x / (1 - cos x) = (1 + cos x) / sin x Multiply both sides by 1 + cos x: sin x (1 + cos) / ((1 - cos x)(1 + cos x)) = (1 + cos x)2 / sin x sin x (1 + cos) / (1 - cos2x) = (1 + cos x)2 / sin x sin x (1 + cos) / sin2x = (1 + cos x)2 / sin x sin x (1 + cos x) / sin x = (1 + cos x)2 1 + cos x = (1 + cos x)2 1 = 1 + cos x cos x = 0 So, cos x can be pi/2, 3 pi / 2, etc. In some of the simplifications, I divided by a factor that might be equal to zero; this has to be considered separately. For example, what if sin x = 0? Check whether this is a solution to the original equation.

cos2 x /(1 - sin x)= (1 - sin2 x )/(1 - sin x)= (1 + sin x)(1 - sin x)/(1 - sin x)= 1 + sin x

First we look at the double-angle identity of cos2x. We know that: cos2x = cos^2x - sin^2x cos2x = [1-sin^2x] - sin^2x.............. (From sin^2x + cos^2x = 1, cos^2x = 1 - sin^2x) Therefore: cos2x = 1 - 2sin^2x 2sin^2x = 1 - cos2x sin^2x = 1/2(1-cos2x) sin^2x = 1/2 - cos2x/2 And intergrating, we get: x/2 - sin2x/4 + c...................(Integral of cos2x = 1/2sin2x; and c is a constant)

(2 sin^2 x - 1)/(sin x - cos x) = sin x + cos x (sin^2 x + sin^2 x - 1)/(sin x - cos x) =? sin x + cos x [sin^2 x - (1 - sin^2 x)]/(sin x - cos x) =? sin x + cos x (sin^2 x - cos^2 x)/(sin x - cos x) =? sin x + cos x [(sin x - cos x)(sin x + cos x)]/(sin x - cos x) =? sin x + cos x sin x + cos x = sin x + cos x

Everything divided by 1 is the same as it was before it was divided by 1. Dividing by one is like, counting - how many 1's go into a number?

Cotangent = 1/Tangent : Cosecant = 1/Sine Then, cot + 1 = (1/tan) + 1 = (cos/sin) + (sin/sin) = (cos + sin)/ sin. Now, cos&sup2; + sin&sup2; = 1 so for the statement to be valid the final expression would have to be : (cos&sup2; + sin&sup2; ) / sin = 1/sin. As this is not the case then, cot + 1 &ne; cosec. In fact, the relationship link is cot&sup2; + 1 = cosec&sup2;

As tan(x)=sin(x)/cos(x) and sin(pi/4) = cos(pi/4) (= sqrt(2)/2) then tan(pi/4) = 1

No.-1 -1 If you look at the graph of cos x or sin x, you will see that the domain is all real numbers, and the range is [-1, 1].

sec + tan = cos /(1 + sin) sec and tan are defined so cos is non-zero. 1/cos + sin/cos = cos/(1 + sin) (1 + sin)/cos = cos/(1 + sin) cross-multiplying, (1 + sin)2 = cos2 (1 + sin)2 = 1 - sin2 1 + 2sin + sin2 = 1 - sin2 2sin2 + 2sin = 0 sin2 + sin = 0 sin(sin + 1) = 0 so sin = 0 or sin = -1 But sin = -1 implies that cos = 0 and cos is non-zero. Therefore sin = 0 or the solutions are k*pi radians where k is an integer.
