Homework Help: Math 2nd question

Posted by Alex on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 at 11:17pm.

Express as a single sine or cosine function (note: this is using double angle formulas)
g) 8sin^2x-4
I just don't get this one. I know it's got something to do with the 1-2sin^2x double angle formula. It's the opposite though? :S

h) 1-2sin^2 (π/4-x/2)
= 1-sin^2(π/4-x/2)-sin^2(π/4-x/2)
= cos^2(π/4-x/2)-sin^2(π/4-x/2)
I got all the way up to cos (π/4 - x/2 + π/4 - x/2)

The answer is supposed to be sin x. I have no clue how they got that.
