= (3 - 4cos(2x) + cos^2(2x) - sin^2(2x))/8

= (3 - 4cos(2x) + cos^2(2x) - (1 - cos^2(2x)))/8

= (2cos^2(2x) - 4cos(2x) + 2)/8

= (2(cos^2(2x) - 2cos(2x) + 1))/8

= (2(cos(2x) - 1)^2)/8

= (2(1 - 2sin^2(x) - 1)^2)/8

= (2(-2sin^2(x))^2)/8

= (8sin^4(x))/8

= sin^4(x)

= LS

hope I made no typos this time
