1. Simplify the trigonometric expression. Show your work. Solution Combining the two expressions under a common denominator gives: 1 1+𝑠𝑖𝑛 πœƒ 1 + 1βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ = 1βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ+1+π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ (1+π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ)(1βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ) = 2π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ 1βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›2 πœƒ But from the trigonometric identity: sin2 πœƒ + cos2 πœƒ = 1 Then, cos2 πœƒ = 1 - sin2 πœƒ 1 1 Hence, 1+𝑠𝑖𝑛 πœƒ + 1βˆ’π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ = 2π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒ π‘π‘œπ‘ 2 πœƒ = 2π‘‘π‘Žπ‘›πœƒ π‘π‘œπ‘ πœƒ = 2π‘ π‘’π‘πœƒπ‘‘π‘Žπ‘›πœƒ , 2. In is a right angle. Find the remaining sides and angles. Round your answers to the nearest tenth. Show your work. a = 3, c = 19 Solution From Pythagoras theorem: AC2 + CB2 = AB2 Then, Side b =βˆšπ’„πŸ βˆ’ π’‚πŸ = βˆšπŸπŸ—πŸ βˆ’ πŸ‘πŸ = βˆšπŸ‘πŸ“πŸ= 18.8 𝑏 < 𝐴 = π‘π‘œπ‘  βˆ’1 𝑐 = π‘π‘œπ‘  βˆ’1 18.8 19 = 9.1Β° Also, < 𝐡 = 180βˆ’< π΄βˆ’< 𝐢 = 180 βˆ’ 90 βˆ’ 9.1 = 80.9Β° 3. Please show your work to find the mean and standard deviation of the data. Round to the nearest tenth. 20, 16, 18, 14, 9, 20, 16 Solution Mean is calculated as follows, π‘š = Mean= 20+16+18+14+9+20+16 7 = π‘₯1+π‘₯2+π‘₯3+β‹― 𝑛 113 7 =16.1 βˆ‘(π‘₯βˆ’π‘š)2 Standard deviation is calculated as follows, s.d=√ 𝑛 (20βˆ’16.1)2 +(16βˆ’16.1)2 +(18βˆ’16.1)2 +(14βˆ’16.1)2 +(9βˆ’16.1)2+(20βˆ’16.1)2 +(16βˆ’16.1)2 7 Thus, s.d=√ 15.21+0.01+3.61+4.41+50.41+15.21+0.01 = 7 S.d=√ 3.54 4. What are the points of discontinuity? Are they all removable? Please show your work. Solution A point of discontinuity is a point where the function increases to infinity and/or decreases to negative infinity i.e it does not exist. For the equation, consider the denominator is zero. Then, the solution for x2 – 6x + 5 = 0 is as follows, (x - 5)(x - 1) = 0 Hence, x = 5 or x =1 makes the equation discontinuous at this points. They are not removable, since they are included in the solution 5. A sound wave is modeled with the equation . a. Find the period. Explain your method. b. Find the amplitude. Explain your method. c.

Paula spots a glider located at an angle of elevation of 42Β°. The distance between the glider and Paula is 3280 feet. To the nearest foot, what is the height of the glider work. h from the ground? Show your 3280 ft h 42 o Paula Solution using the definition of sine then, sin 42 = h/3280 Hence, height of glider, h =3280 sin 42 = 2195 ft 7. What is the product in simplest form? State any restrictions on the variable. Please show your work. y2 y y2 3 y2 y 6 y Solution Factoring the following quadratic expressions gives the following, y2 – y – 6 = (y-3) (y+2) y2 + y = y(y+1) then the expression simplifies to: 𝑦2 (π‘¦βˆ’3)(𝑦+2) π‘₯ π‘¦βˆ’3 𝑦(𝑦+1) = 𝑦(𝑦+2) 𝑦+1 The restriction is for y not to be equal to -1. 8. Verify the identity. Justify each step. Solution Since tan(ΞΈ) = sin(ΞΈ)/cos(ΞΈ) and cot(ΞΈ) = cos(ΞΈ)/sin(ΞΈ) Then, tanΞΈ + cotΞΈ = sinΞΈ/cosΞΈ +cosΞΈ/sinΞΈ Expressing these under a common denominator becomes, tanΞΈ + cotΞΈ = 𝑠𝑖𝑛2 πœƒ+π‘π‘œπ‘ 2 πœƒ π‘ π‘–π‘›πœƒπ‘π‘œπ‘ πœƒ But, 𝑠𝑖𝑛2 πœƒ + π‘π‘œπ‘  2 πœƒ = 1 Hence, 9. Is there any bias in the survey question? Explain. What do think would help students pay more attention in class? Solution Yes, the survey can contain bias. If a student is answering the question or someone related or friends with a student. They could then answer the survey to better fit them, rather than all of the students as a whole 10. Find the values of the 30th and 90th percentiles of the data. Please show your work. 129, 113, 200, 100, 105, 132, 100, 176, 146, 152 11. What is the quotient in simplified form? State any restrictions on the variable. Show Work. a 2 a 1 a5 a2 8a 15 Solution First, factorize the quadratic equation as follows: a2 – 8a + 15 = a2 -3a -5a +15 = (a-5) (a-3) Then the expression is evaluated as follows: π‘Ž + 2 (π‘Ž βˆ’ 5)(π‘Ž βˆ’ 3) (π‘Ž + 2)(π‘Ž βˆ’ 3) π‘₯ = π‘Žβˆ’5 π‘Ž+1 π‘Ž+1 Restrictions on variable is that a not be equal to -1. 12.

Howard is flying a kite and wants to find its angle of elevation. The string on the kite is 32 meters long and the kite is level with the top of a building that he knows is 28 meters high. To the nearest tenth of a degree, find the angle of elevation. Show your work. Solution Using the definition of sine, Sin Ξ± = height of building/length of string =28/32=0.875 Thus angle of elevation, Ξ±= sin-1 0.875 = 61
