Does sin x + cos x = 1? [Solved!]

My question

does it mean that sin^2 x+cos^2 x=1 is the same as sin x+cos x=1?

Re: Does sin x + cos x = 1?

Welcome to the IntMath community.

The answer to your question is no.

Try the following. Choose any angle. Let's say 41 degrees.

Find this value:

`(sin 41)^2 + (cos 41)^2`

Now find this value

`sin 41 + cos 41`

Are they the same?

I guess not.

I am really thankful to get those solutions.
