I'm unsure as to whether I'm correct with this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

4sinx - 3cosx

My answer ended up being 5sin(x + sin^-1 (-3/5)).

The equations I used were:

asinx + bcosx = (a^2 + b^2)^1/2 * sin(x + angle)

angle = sin^-1 (b / (a^2 + b^2)^1/2))

Can someone clarify whether I'm correct? I would appreciate it.
