Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Start by considering 2A as A+A ... does that make you think of any particular theorem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...of course that makes me want to know how to prove the theorem you are thinking of @Tonks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We know that sin(2A) = sin(A + A) sin (A + A) = cosA sinA + cosA sinA = 2 sinA cosA QED

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know it was some geometric proof like that, I don't remember those darn things...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that enough or do you need proof for sin (A + B) = cosA sinB + cosB sinA

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, sorry about that, though. It's easier for me to remember this formula this way.
