### Video (2) a cos x + b sin x = R cos(x-alpha) - an Animation
This mathtutor animation shows how the formula a cos x + b sin x = R cos(x-alpha) may be derived using right angled triangles.

In this unit we explore how the sum of two trigonometric functions e.g.3 cos x plus 4 sin x, can be expressed as a single trigonometric function. Having the ability to do this enables us to solve trigonometric equations and find maximum and minimum values.
