**Marth**, Friday, August 14, 2009 at 4:09pmFirst solve cos(theta)=0.5

Step 1: Where is the cosine of theta equal to 0.5? Think about your memory angles or special triangles.

Step 2: Now double the angles found in step 1, and take the cosine of the new angle you found. (Both answers should be the same).

**MathMate**, Friday, August 14, 2009 at 9:01pmAnother approach using double angle identities.

cos(2A)=cos²(A)-sin²(A)=2cos²(A)-1

You will find cos(2A) by subtituting the value of cos(A) in the above equation.
