1 - 4sin^2(x)cos^2(x) = cos^2(2x)

**MathMate**, Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 11:09pmCan you check your book to see if the given expression is "supposed" to be an identity, or is it a question to solve for x?

The left hand side:

4sin²(x)cos²(x)

=(2sin(x)cos(x))²

=sin²(2x)

Which is not an identity with the right hand side.

If it is an equation, try to solve for x. It would be an excellent exercise.
