Mathematical Induction involving Compound Angle Formula of Tangent

Mathematical Induction involving Compound Angle Formula of Tangent

Trigonometric properties and formulae can be used to perform proofs using mathematical induction. In this example, we use the following compound angle formulae for mathematical induction. $$ \displaystyle \begin{align} \tan (\alpha + \beta) &= \frac{\tan \alpha + \tan \beta}{1 – \tan \alpha \tan \beta} \\ \tan (\alpha – \beta) &= \frac{\tan \alpha – \tan \beta}{1 […]

Circles with Cnetre $(0,0)$ Consider a circle with centre $(0,0)$ and radius $r$ units. Suppose $(x,y)$ is any point on this circle. Using ths distance formula; \( \begin{align} \displaystyle \sqrt{(x-0)^2+(y-0)^2} &= r \\ \therefore x^2+y^2 &= r^2 \end{align} \) $x^2+y^2 = r^2$ is the equation of a circle with centre $(0,0)$ and radius $r$.
