How to find the equation given the roots

Before I answer the question in the title, we need to do some revisions: This is what you do when you solve a quadratic equation like : Solution: => (x-5)(x+2)=0 => If x-5 = 0, then x = 5; if x+2 = 0, then x =-2. The solution is x=5 or x=-2. If you graph

Proving trigonometric identities #1

The common error in proving trigonometric identities is to assume the equality of the left-hand side (LHS) and the right-hand side (RHS) of what is being proved. To prove an identity means to transform the LHS and RHS in the same form. Prove the identity: Solution sure to get 0/5 mark: This is a ratio
