    Where do I start to prove this identity: sinx/cosx= 1-cos2x/sin2x please help!! Hint: Fractions are evil. Get rid of them. Well, cos2x = cos 2 x - sin 2 x, so 1-coscx = 1 - cos 2 x - sin 2 x = 1 - cos 2 x + sin 2 x You should be able …

    Use a trig identity to combine two functions into one so you can solve for x. (The solution should be valid for any value of t). 3cos(t) + 3*sqrt(3)*sin(t)=6cos(t-x) I know that 6 cos(t-x) can be 6(cos(t)cosx(x)+sin(t)sin(x)) I don't …

    Use the identities cos^2 x + sin^2 x =1 and cos2x=cos^2 x -sin^2 x to show that cos^4 x -sin^4 x = cos2x Im not sure how, I can solve my problem with half angle identities but im not sure where to start with this.
