Trig

Could someone please show me how
1 / ( 4 tan (x/2) + 2 )

is converted to:
(- sin (x/2) /( 2 sin (x/2) + cos (x/2))

TIA

  • Trig - ,

    lets check it at x=0, and x=PI/2

    x=0: 1/4(1+2)=1/12

    (-sin45/(2sin45+cos45)=-.707/(1.414+.707) does not equal 1/12

  • Trig - ,

    that was at x=90 deg, the identity did not hold. Now at x=0

    1/4(0+2)=1/8
    -0/(0+.7) does not equal 1/8
