coshX*cosx=0  x=?

Solve for x over the real numbers:
cos(x) cosh(x) = 0

Split into two equations:
cos(x) = 0 or cosh(x) = 0

Take the inverse cosine of both sides:
x = π/2 + π n for n element Z
 or cosh(x) = 0

cosh(x) = 0 has no solution since for all x element R, cosh(x)>=1 and True:
Answer: | x = π/2 + π n for n element Z

Hi Guest, your solution for coshx * cosx = 0 is not correct.

There are only four results, not infinitely many.

Greeting! asinus

 

Oh sorry, I've seen this wrong.

Your solution for coshx * cosx = 0 is correct.
 

I am sorry! asinus

coshx*cosx=0  x=?

 

\(cos\ x =0\\x=\frac{\pi}{2}+\pi\cdot n\\n \in ℤ\)

 

\(cosh\ x=\frac{1}{2}(e^x+e^{-x})>0\\ for \ x\in \Re\)    no solution

 

\(solution:\)

 

\(coshx \cdot cosx=0\\x_1=\frac{\pi}{2} \\x_2=\frac{\pi}{2}+\pi\\x_3=-\frac{\pi}{2}\\x_4=-(\frac{\pi}{2}+\pi) \)

 

\(x=\frac{\pi}{2}+\pi\cdot n\)     Thank you! C.

\( for\ n \in ℤ\)

 

laugh  !

Actually, the guest is correct....this graph is symmetric around the y axis  and will = 0 at

pi/2 + n*pi      radians......where n is an integer.......

 

See the graph below :

 

 

 

cool cool cool
