its been a while...but im back. i've been working really hard and finally have another question.

 

is \(cos(\theta + \frac{\pi}{2} = -sin(\theta)\) a true identity?

Here is a graph of  cos (x + pi/2):

 

 

 

 

and here is a graph of  - sin x :

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHat do you think?

We can use the angle sum identitiy for the cosine to  check this  ........

 

cos  (θ  + π/2) = 

 

cos θ cos π/2  -  sin  θ sin π/2  =

 

cos θ *  ( 0 )  - sin θ  * (1)  =

 

-sin θ

 

So...this is an  identity  !!!

 

 

 

cool cool cool
