What is the symbol circled in yellow? It would help if you typed out the equations ... Last edited by skeeter; May 1st, 2017 at 09:17 AM.

WHY have we yet not told this student to post CLEARLY plus show his work? All his posts so far show no work... May I? Jeho, please show CLEAR attachments PLUS your work. Thank you in advance. NOTE: your handwriting is worse than mine!

$\cos(\frac{\pi}{4}\theta)=\frac{AB}{AE}$ $\cos(\frac{\pi}{4}\theta)=\frac{1}{2}(1+\sin 2\theta)$

AE = AB/(AB/AE) = a/cos($\pi$/4  Ï•) AEÂ² = 2aÂ²/(2cosÂ²(pi/4  Ï•)) $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ $= 2aÂ²/(cos($\pi$/2  2Ï•) + 1) (because cos2Î¸ â‰¡ 2cosÂ²Î¸  1) $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ $= 2aÂ²/(1 + sin(2Ï•))
