The request was refused by University of Cambridge.

Dear University of Cambridge,

I want to know if the following mathematical formulas would be accepted for Alevel Mathematics (9709)

Sin theta= k
Sin theta= (pi)n + (-1)^n *sin^-1(k)

Cos theta= k
Cos theta= 2(pi)n +- cos^-1(k)

Tan theta= k
Tan theta= (pi)n + tan^-1(k)

Where 'n' stands for +\- integers

Yours faithfully,
Suha T.
