Prove that
cos4x=8cos^4x8cos^2x+1
so I'm guessing you begin with the left side cos4x=cos2(2x) then im kinda lost

Find all solutions on the interval [0.2pi) A) 3sin(t)=15cos(t)sin(t) I have no clue... b) 8cos^2(t)=32cos(t) All i did was move around the equation to make an quadratic for B. so 8cos^2(t)2cos(t)+3 = 0
