Let s start off with an easy example

Let’s start off with an easy example:

We will make the left side look like the right first by using the Pythagorean identity

Next, we will re-write tan using the quotient identity


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

From the last slide:

We will finish by reducing cosine and both sides will now be identical.


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Here is another example:


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

We will start by working on the

left side of the equation by rewriting the sine and cosine using the quotient identity:


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Now we can cross cancel inside the parenthesis

Inside the brackets we need a common denominator


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Next, we combine the fraction

Again we can cross cancel sinx

and we are left with…

Which equals the right side!


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Here is another example:

Let’s start by working on the right side of the equation by multiplying by 1

in the conjugate of the denominator.


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Multiply the denominator (hint: use foil)

Use the Pythagorean indentify to simplify the denominator


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Distribute the numerator:

Separate the fraction:

Reduce the fractions:


Unit 7 lesson 2 investigation 2

Next, simplify each fraction

The identity is now complete and so is the tutorial. See your teacher for practice problems.
