Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1have you tried cos^{2}2x = (1+cos4x)/2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\cos^2 A  \cos^2 B = \sin(A+B)\sin(BA)\] This is a standard formula. So, we need a proof right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(1+cos4x)/2(1+cos12x)/2 = (1+cos 4x+cos12x+cos4xcos12x)/2 and then defactorize the last term...and factorize the second and third term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8\[\cos^2(2x)  \cos^2(6x) \implies (\cos(2x)  \cos(6x))(\cos(2x) + \cos(6x))\] So: Using: \[\cos(C) + \cos(D) = 2\cos(\frac{C+ D}{2})\cos(\frac{CD)}{2})\] \[\cos(C)  \cos(D) = 2\sin(\frac{C+ D}{2})\sin(\frac{DC}{2})\] \[(2\sin(4x) \sin(2x))(2\cos(4x)\cos(2x)) \implies (2\sin(2x)\cos(2x)) \cdot (2\sin(4x) \cos(4x))\] \[\implies \sin(4x) \cdot \sin(8x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8See: \[\cos^2(2x)  \cos^2(6x) = \sin(A+B)\sin(AB) \implies \sin(2x  6x)\sin(2x + 6x)\] Don't you think we get negative ??? @apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\cos^2A−\cos^2B\] \[=(\cos A+\cos B)(\cos A−\cos B)\] \[=[2\cos(\frac{A+B}2)\cos(\frac{A−B}2)][2\sin(\frac{A+B}2)\sin(\frac{BA}2)]\] \[=[2\sin(\frac{A+B}2)\cos(\frac{A+B}2)][2\sin(\frac{BA}2\cos(\frac{BA}2)]\] \[=\Large\boxed{\sin(A+B)\sin(BA)}\] Happy nitpickers? ____
