Re: tri functions?I think MathsIsFun summed up that solution perfectly:
It's right, as far as I can tell, but it just annoys me when things can't be simplified and you have to leave them in a mess like that. The best alternative I could come up with is: Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20060126 20:48:21
Re: tri functions?hrm . that looks real good . nope no domain needed .. well the online hw is overdued and i was able to see the answer.. supposely the correct answer. #6 20060126 21:14:24
