1
Expressing asinx + bcosx in the forms Rsin(x ± ) or Rcos(x ± ) The graph below is y = 3cosx + 4sinx. This can be considered as either a sine or a cosine graph which has been translated horizontally and stretched vertically.

2
If it is considered to be a cosine curve then it has been translated horizontally and stretched vertically by a factor of The object is to find the horizontal translation and vertical stretch.

3
If it is considered to be a sine curve then it has been translated horizontally and stretched vertically by a factor of The object is to find the horizontal translation and vertical stretch.

4
If the curve is taken to be a translated cosine curve then its equation will be of the form 3cosx + 4sinx = Rcos(x - ) Where is the horizontal translation And R is the vertical stretch Note the question contains a PLUS in the middle and the translated equation contains a MINUS because the curve is translated in a positive x direction.

5
cosx + sinx = Rcos(x - = R(cosxcos + sinxsin ) Using cos(A - B) cosx Matching up the left and right hand side then Rcos = 3 Rsin = 4 = (Rcos ) sinx + (Rsin ) 3 4

6
Rsin = 4 Rcos = 3 Dividing these two equations = 53.1 o

7
R 2 sin 2 = 16 andR 2 cos 2 = 9 Adding these two equations R 2 sin 2 + R 2 cos 2 = = 25 R 2 (sin 2 + cos 2 ) = 25 R = 5 as sin 2 + cos 2 = 1 Rsin = 4 Rcos = 3 Squaring these two equations

8
Hence 3cosx + 4sinx = Rcos(x - ) = 5 cos(x – 53.1) This is a cosine graph which has been translated horizontally and stretched vertically by a factor of 5 This is evident from the graph on the right

9
If the curve is taken to be a translated sine curve then its equation will be of the form 3cosx + 4sinx = Rsin(x + ) Where is the horizontal translation And R is the vertical stretch Note the question contains a PLUS in the middle and the translated equation contains a PLUS because the curve is translated in a negative x direction.

10
cosx + sinx = Rsin(x + = R(sinxcos + cosxsin ) Using sin(A + B) sinx Matching up the left and right hand side then Rcos = 4 Rsin = 3 = (Rcos ) cosx + (Rsin ) 3 4

11
Rsin = 3 Rcos = 4 Dividing these two equations = 36.9 o

12
R 2 sin 2 = 9 andR 2 cos 2 = 16 Adding these two equations R 2 sin 2 a + R 2 cos 2 = = 25 R 2 (sin 2 + cos 2 ) = 25 R = 5 as sin 2 + cos 2 = 1 Rsin = 3 Rcos = 4 Squaring these two equations

13
Hence 3cosx + 4sinx = Rsin(x + ) = 5sin(x ) This is a sine graph which has been translated horizontally – and stretched vertically by a factor of 5 This is evident from the graph on the right

14
Using the Rsin(x ± ) or Rcos(x ± ) form to solve equations of the form acosx + bsinx = c Solve 3cosx + 4sinx = 4 3cosx + 4sinx = 5cos(x ) Shown previously So 5cos(x – 53.1) = 4 Let y = x – 53.1 So cosy = x – 53.1 = 36.8, -36.8, find 1st two answers and add 360 x = 89.9, 16.3, add 53.1 to both sides y = cos -1 = 36.8, -36.8, 323.1
