I was only looking for x-axis intersections from two equations for some reason. Weirdly enough, Wolfram Alpha doesn't give me the other solutions. Thanks! May22 asked Solving for $x$ in a log equation May1 comment Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient Ultimately used this method. Thanks for the guidance! Replacing the 1 with the cos and sin was something I never had todo before, so this knowledge definitely opens up some additional avenues in solving these. Thanks! May1 accepted Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient May1 comment Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient Could you explain how the denominator of step 2 transforms to the squared cos subtracted by sin? May1 asked Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient May1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. Oh I see, you are doing it a bit differently from Arturo which has mixed me up a bit. Thanks for this as well! May1 accepted Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. May1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. Oh! Convert $\csc$ and $\sec$ to the reciprocals, get $\frac{\sin^2 \theta}{\cos \theta \sin \theta}$, simplify and get $\tan\$! Thanks! May1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. Oops, you are right. I understand this step as rationalizing the denominator, but I don't know how to proceed at all. May1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. The LHS? I'm seriously at a lost here; another hint would be great. May1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. $\frac{\tan \theta}{\sin^2 \theta}$? Is that correct? May1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. It is equal to $1-\cos\theta$ or $\sin^2\theta$... still deciding what to do with it though.

Jan29 comment Which of the numbers $99^{100}$ and $100^{99}$ is the larger one? @Myself - Yep, wolframalpha.com/input/?i=999999%5E1000000+%3E+1000000%5E999999. Might have to give it a few seconds ;) Nov5 comment Do online lecture recordings hurt or help math students at university? I love the point about seeing different lectures from different professors - different viewpoints can help you cement your knowledge and fill in any gaps you didn't know you even had!
