Cosine 
$\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t=x$ 
Sine 
$\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t=y$ 
Pythagorean Identity 
${\mathrm{cos}}^{2}t+{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}t=1$ 
Key concepts
 Finding the function values for the sine and cosine begins with drawing a unit circle, which is centered at the origin and has a radius of 1 unit.
 Using the unit circle, the sine of an angle
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ equals the
y value of the endpoint on the unit circle of an arc of length
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ whereas the cosine of an angle
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ equals the
x value of the endpoint. See
[link] .
 The sine and cosine values are most directly determined when the corresponding point on the unit circle falls on an axis. See
[link] .
 When the sine or cosine is known, we can use the Pythagorean Identity to find the other. The Pythagorean Identity is also useful for determining the sines and cosines of special angles. See
[link] .
 Calculators and graphing software are helpful for finding sines and cosines if the proper procedure for entering information is known. See
[link] .
 The domain of the sine and cosine functions is all real numbers.
 The range of both the sine and cosine functions is
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}[\mathrm{1},1].$
 The sine and cosine of an angle have the same absolute value as the sine and cosine of its reference angle.
 The signs of the sine and cosine are determined from the
x  and
y values in the quadrant of the original angle.
 An angle’s reference angle is the size angle,
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t,$ formed by the terminal side of the angle
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and the horizontal axis. See
[link] .
 Reference angles can be used to find the sine and cosine of the original angle. See
[link] .
 Reference angles can also be used to find the coordinates of a point on a circle. See
[link] .
Section exercises
Verbal
Discuss the difference between a coterminal angle and a reference angle.
Coterminal angles are angles that share the same terminal side. A reference angle is the size of the smallest acute angle,
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t,$ formed by the terminal side of the angle
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and the horizontal axis.

how to solve x²=2x+8 factorization?
x=2x+8
x2x=2x+82x
x2x=8
x=8
x/1=8/1
x=8
prove:
if x=8
8=2(8)+8
8=16+8
8=8
(PROVEN)
Manifoldee
×=2x8 minus both sides by 2x
Manifoldee
so, x2x=2x+82x
Manifoldee
then cancel out 2x and 2x, cuz 2x2x is obviously zero
Manifoldee
so it would be like this: x2x=8
Manifoldee
then we all know that beside the variable is a number (1): (1)x2x=8
Manifoldee
so we will going to minus that 12=1
Manifoldee
so it would be x=8
Manifoldee
so next step is to cancel out negative number beside x so we get positive x
Manifoldee
so by doing it you need to divide both side by 1 so it would be like this: (1x/1)=(8/1)
Manifoldee
SO THE ANSWER IS X=8
Manifoldee
so we should prove it
Manifoldee
x=2x+8
x2x=8
x=8
x=8 by mantu from India
mantu
lol i just saw its x²
Manifoldee
x²=2x8
x²2x=8
x²=8
x²=8
square root(x²)=square root(8)
x=sq. root(8)
Manifoldee
I mean x²=2x+8 by factorization method
Kristof
I think x=2 or x=4
Kristof
x= 2x+8
×=82x
 2x + x = 8
 x = 8 both sides divided  1
×/1 = 8/1
× =  8 //// from somalia
