Really simple question

  1. Jan 30, 2009 #1
    k guys if you have 1/cos (x)
    and x= pi/4

    then the answer is root 2

    but i'm actually having trouble writing it out

    so...

    1/ cos (pi/4) = 1/(root2 / 2)

    so how come answer isn't 2/root2???

    2/sqrt(2)=sqrt(2). Can you see why?
