## anonymous 5 years ago Suppose that the value of cos x is (1/3). Without your calculator determine the exact value of cos(2x).

1. anonymous

thats easy as well

2. anonymous

double angle expansion

3. anonymous

cos2x= cos^2 x - sin^2 x = cos^2 x - ( 1-cos^2 x ) = 2cos^2(x) -1

4. anonymous

$\cos2x=2\cos ^{2}x-1$
