I can't remember what formula to use for these.

Note- the X's may be replaced by a theta symbol. I just didnt have one on my keyboard.

Use the given information to find sin2X, cos2X and tan2X if 0< X <pi/2

1. sinX=12/13

2. cosX=3/5

3. tanX=2/3

You use the double angle formulas.

To type θ, you need to type the following without the double quotes nor the spaces: "& t h e t a ;".

As Diana suggested, use the double angle formulas. I'll do the first one as an example.

sin(2θ)

=2sin(θ)cos(θ)

sin(&theta)=12/13

cos(&theta)=sqrt(1²-(12/13)²)=5/13

Therefore

sin(2θ)

=2sin(θ)cos(θ)

=2(12/13)(5/13)

=120/169
