    I think you should use the quadratic formula

    \[5 \cdot \cos^{2}x-5 \cdot \sin^{2}x +sinx+cosx=5\cdot(cosx+sinx)(cosx-sinx)+(sinx+cosx)\] and now \[5 \cdot \cos^{2}x-5 \cdot \sin^{2}x +sinx+cosx=5\cdot(sinx+cosx)(cosx-sinx +1)\]

    if this is confusing, put \(a=\cos(x)\) and \(b=\sin(x)\) and factor \[5a^2-5b^2+a+b\]

    it has nothing whatsoever to do with trig, but the all those trig functions will tend to confuse

    \[5a^2-5b^2+a+b=5(a+b)(a-b)+a+b=(5(a-b)+1)(a+b)\]

    :D figured it out! I can do "5a2−5b2+a+b" :P
