Explanation
Consider the polynomial function
f(x)=anxn+an1xn1++a1x+a0(an0)
In it an is called the leading term.
The leading coefficient test:
Consider the polynomial function, f(x)=anxn+an1xn1++a1x+a0(an0)
That is leading coefficient is an. then,
For n is odd
(a)an>0, the graph falls to the left and rises to the right.
(a)an<0, the graph rises to the left and falls to the right
For n is even
(a)an>0, the graph rises to the left and rises to the right.
(a)an<0, the graph falls to the left and falls to the right.
Step 2
That is, Odd-degree polynomial function have graphs with opposite behavior at each end while even-degree polynomial shows same behavior at each end.
Therefore, from the leading coefficient test the end behavior is governed with the help of the leading coefficients.
Hence, the behavior of the graph of a polynomial function to the far left or the far right is called its end behavior, which depends upon the leading term.

Find the sum of the squares of the solutions to 1 cos x + 1 + cos x = 3 ,, where π < x < π .
Attempt: Squaring both sides gives
1 cos x + 2 ( 1 cos x ) ( 1 + cos x ) + 1 + cos x = 3 ,
which simplifies to
2 1 cos 2 x = 3 1 sin 2 x = 1 | sin x | = 1.

Showing dθdtanθ=11+tan2θ
I suppose that
dθdtanθ=darctanxdx=11+x2=11+tan2θ
So is
dθdtanθ=11+tan2θ
correct? And
dθdtanθ2=21+tan2θ2?

Evaluate

I know it can be done by Weierstrass substitution. But I am looking for new/simple approach. For example I tried:
1sinxcosxsinx+cosxsinx+cosxdx=sinx+cosxcos2xdx
but I can't continue from here.

Prove that u and v are orthogonal vectors
The vectors u and v are given in terms of the basis vectors a , b and c as follows:
u = 3 a + 3 b c
v = a + 2 b + 3 c
I've tried u . v to see if their dot product equals to 0, but it does not. Am I missing something?
It was given that a , b , and c form a basis in R 3 .
It was also given that:
| a | = 1 , | b | = 2 , | c | = 3
