Interal Explenation

  1. Aug 31, 2009 #1
    This isn't a homework question so I decided not to post it there, can someone quickly explain what happened here,

    I can't figure out how they got the sec[tex]^{3}[/tex] into sec and then how they got sec into cos it doesn't explain anything on the website either.

    Um, they canceled sec^2(theta) from the top and bottom? And also the definition of sec is 1/cos...

    Yeah I realized that they canceled sec^2 after I posted it. I get now why the changed sec^-1 to cos thanks, I guess I forgot some of my trig.
