Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We split sin(3A) and cos(3A) into sin(2A+A) , cos (2A+A), and use trig identities to rewrite them. sin(2A+A)=sin(A)cos(2A)+cos(A)sin(2A) cos(2A+A)=cos(A)cos(2A)sin(A)sin(2A) sin(2A) is 2sin(A)cos(A) so in the numerator we have sin(A)*(1+cos(2A)+2cos^2(A)) denominator: cos(A)*(1+cos(2A)2sin^2(A)) 1+cos(2A)=2cos^2(A) 2cos^2(A)2sin^2(A)=2cos(2u) so now our denominator is 2cos(A)cos(2A) numerator is sin(A)*4cos^2(A) using the same identities. cancel cos(A) and we have 4sin(A)cos(A)/(2cos(2A)) 4sin(A)cos(A)=2sin(2A) cancel a 2 and we have sin(2A)/cos(2A)=tan(2A). Maybe there's a nicer way to do this but this works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes much nicer. The method watchmath used for the linked problem works for this problem as well, so I would recommend doing that instead.
