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! May 22 asked Solving for $x$ in a log equation May 1 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! May 1 accepted Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient May 1 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? May 1 asked Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient May 1 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! May 1 accepted Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. May 1 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! May 1 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. May 1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. The LHS? I'm seriously at a lost here; another hint would be great. May 1 comment Proving an identity using reciprocal, quotient, or Pythagorean identities. $\frac{\tan \theta}{\sin^2 \theta}$? Is that correct? May 1 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.

Jan 29 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 ;) Nov 2 accepted Finding an inequality for a word problem
