YES, homework 1 is due AFTER homework 2 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Express the function f ( x ) = 5 sin 2 x- 4 cos 2 x in terms of cos 2 x . 1. f ( x ) = 1 2 + 9 2 cos 2 x 2. f ( x ) = 9 + 1 2 cos 2 x 3. f ( x ) = 9 2- 1 2 cos 2 x 4. f ( x ) = 9 2- 9 2 cos 2 x 5. f ( x ) = 1 2- 9 2 cos 2 x correct 6. f ( x ) = 1 2- 9 cos 2 x Explanation: Since sin 2 x = 1 2 (1- cos 2 x ) and cos 2 x = 1 2 (1 + cos 2 x ) , we can rewrite f as f ( x ) = 5 2 (1- cos 2 x )- 2(1 + cos 2 x ) . Consequently, f ( x ) = 1 2- 9 2 cos 2 x . keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Simplify the expression f ( θ ) = √ 1- cos 4 θ , eliminating the radical. 1. f ( θ ) = √ 2 sin 2 θ 2. f ( θ ) = √ 2 | cos 2 θ | 3. f ( θ ) = 2 cos 2 8 θ 4. f ( θ ) = 2 sin 2 8 θ 5. f ( θ ) = √ 2 cos 2 θ 6. f ( θ ) = √ 2 | sin 2 θ | correct Explanation: By the double angle formula cos 2 x = 1- 2 sin 2 x. With x = 2 θ , therefore, we see that √ 1- cos 4 θ = p 2 sin 2 2 θ . Consequently, f ( θ ) = √ 2 | sin 2 θ | , the absolute value being included to ensure that f ( θ ) ≥ 0. keywords: trig identity, simplify trig expres- sion, double angle formula 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points When 1 2 3- 1- 2- 3- 1- 2- 3 Gauthier, Joseph – Homework 1 – Due: Sep 11 2007, 3:00 am – Inst: JEGilbert 2 is the graph of y = a + b cos mx, ( m > 0) , on [- 4 , 4], what is b ? 1. b =- 2 2. b =- 4 3. b = 7 4 4. b = 4 5. b = 2 correct Explanation: As 1 2 3- 1- 2- 3- 1- 2- 3 shows, the given graph is that of y =- 3 2 + 2 cos 1 2 πx, in other words, the graph of y = 2 cos 1 2 πx shifted vertically by a term y =- 3 2 . Thus b is given by b = 2 . keywords: graph, trig function, phase, ampli- tude, period, vertical shift 004 (part 1 of 3) 10 points The figure ABCD in A C B D θ a b is a parallelogram and BD is a diagonal. (i) Express the area of ABCD as a function of a, b and θ . 1. Area ABCD = 1 2 ab cos θ 2. Area ABCD = 1 2 ab sin θ 3. Area ABCD = ab cos θ 4. Area ABCD = 2 ab sin θ 5. Area ABCD = ab sin θ correct Explanation: In the parallelogram ABCD the triangles Δ ABD and Δ BDC are congruent by SSS since side BD is common to both triangles, while side AD is congruent to side BC and side AB is congruent to side DC . Thus Area ABCD = Area ABD + Area BDC = 2 Area ABD ....
