    hi i am tryig to calculte this
    y1(t) = A(1+mcos(2pi5000t))cos (2pi80000t)

    and have to find minimum value of A when y1(t) is greater than or
    equal to .2V for all t
    how do you find that i have simplified that equation using trig
    iden...but still not sure how to find that A
    please help
    thank u

    Cosine will not exceed +/- 1
    Sine will not exceed +/- 1
    the positive peak would be +A + Am = A(1+m);
    The neagtive peak would be be -A(1+m);
