Simplify the given expression........?


(2sin2x)(cos6x)

sin 2x and cos 6x can be expressed as a series of terms that involve sin x or cos x only, but the end result is not a simplification.
sin 2x = 2 sinx cosx
cos 6x = 32 cos^6 x -48 cos^4 x
+ 18 cos^2 x - 1

I assume you are not talking abous sin^2 x and cos^6 x

cos 6x could be written 2 cos^2 3x -1
but that doesn't help much, either

    Use the fundamental identities to simplify the expression. tan^2 Q / sec^2 Q sin^2/cos^2 / 1/cos^2 = sin^2 / cos^2 times cos^2 / 1 = The cos^2 cancels out so sin^2 is left. Is this correct?
