In this lesson, Julie Harland teaches us how to prove a trig identity by using the basic identities and the identity for the cosine of a sum or difference. She explains how to work through the problem and shows the formal way of writing the proof. By following her step-by-step approach, we can verify trig identities with ease.
We verify a Trig identity by using the basic identities and the identity for the cosine of a sum or difference. We prove that (sin(x+y))/(sinx * cosy) = 1 + cotx * tany using a trig proof.
