Ch 45: NMTA Math: Solving Trigonometric Equations

About This Chapter

The NMTA Math test contains questions about trigonometric equations. Our comprehensive study guide features a chapter that will help you review this concept in a fun and interesting way.

NMTA Math: Solving Trigonometric Equations - Chapter Summary

This chapter of our NMTA Math study guide explores how to solve trigonometric equations. First, it helps you review the process of solving for X, a common feature of most trigonometric equations. But then, it will also help you recall the steps necessary for solving for identities and inverses, and the properties of these same inverse trigonometric functions. It will explore restricted domains and infinite solutions, too. By the end of the chapter, you will have reviewed:

  • Solving for X in trigonometric equations
  • Solving trigonometric equations with inverses and identities
  • Inverse trigonometric functions: properties
  • Trigonometric equations with restricted domains and infinite solutions

Each lesson has practice questions that will help illustrate how the NMTA Math exam will test your knowledge of these concepts. The practice questions are modeled on your upcoming exam. This gained familiarity will also help you budget your time.

Objectives of the NMTA Math: Solving Trigonometric Equations Chapter

The computer-based NMTA Math exam tests your understanding of information across five domains. This chapter belongs to the trigonometry and calculus domain, which accounts for 19% of the 150 multiple-choice questions. The test is only 255 minutes long, so it is important to practice answering its questions through the use of our study guide.
