    Derivative Problem

    Homework Statement What's the 39th derivative of cosx? Homework Equations 1st dy/dx: -sin x 2nd: -cosx 3rd: sinx 4th; cosx The Attempt at a Solution So it repeats every 4 so I used 39/4 and for a remainder of 3 so is is the 3rd one down? I got sin x but I don't know...

    Impossible problem?

    Homework Statement is( X^2 )y + (Y^2)x = 6, then the second derivative at the point (1,3) is ? Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I don't see how this is possible, when I plug in 1 and 3 it comes out as 9 = 6 which isn't true. Can someone tell me if this is wrong? or...

    Simple probem check

    Yes, I did that and sin ^2x + Cos ^2X = 1 so that leaves me with sin^2x - cos^2x, which I have to simplify. I turned that into (- cos^2x + Sin^2x) for simplification purposes. Then I multiplied that whole thing by -1/-1 Which gave me Cos ^2x - Sin ^2x, which simplifies to Cos 2x...

    x = pi/6 + 2kpi, 5pi/6 = 2kpi? On a test or something, would I just leave the answers as so? ( if their correct).

    Problem Check

    SO my final answer will be: pi/4 + 2pi/4? How would I do this for a repeating angle such as: sin x = -1/2 or 1/2 with no limits? since the difference are different. Like pi/6, 5pi/6, 7pi/6. The differences are different.

    Homework Statement Tan^{2}X - 1 = 0 Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I added 1 to both sides, then I took the square root of both sides giving me: tan x = \pm1 which gives me answers at pi/4, 3pi/4, 5pi/4 and so on. Do I just write pi/4 + 2kpi as my answer?

    No limits. So my answer is basicaly, 30 degrees or pi/6 + 2kpi? Correct?

    Arcsin x sin

    so in this case would it be arcsin(sin(60)) = Arcsin ((\sqrt{3}/2 ? Can you give me a problem that displays what you have just told me? I'd really like to see one ( as I have not been told that in my Precalculus class). Thanks.

    Trig identities

    yeah, its pi/6, 5pi/6, and so forth. Whats the sign that I add to the answer if it's periodical? How exactly do I write the answer for this problem? Do I write all the radians that make the equation true one time around the unit circle then add the (periodical)?

    Arcsin x sin

    Oh I think I get it. So, I can take the arcsine of both sides in a problem such as: sin(2x) = (Root3 )/2 and I would get arcsin(sin(2x)) = arcsin ((root3)/2) Which would get me to 2x = arcsin ((root3)/2)? Correct?

    Trig identities

    I'm still stuck. I used the inverse sin of the (root3)/2 and I got answers like pi/3, 2pi/3, ect. I think I need to use the identity but it seems impossible to figure out: 2sinx cosx = (root3)/2
