Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think ur question is cos2x/(1+sin2x) now cos2x =cos^2x sin^2x=(cosx+sinx)(cosxsinx) and 1+sin2x = cos^2x + sin^2x +2sinxcosx =(cosx+sinx)^2 thus cos2x/(1+sinx)^2= (cosx+sinx)(cosxsinx)/(cosx+sinx)^2 =(cosx sinx)/((cosx+sinx) divide both num and denom by cosx and then we have =(1sinx/cosx)/(1+sinx/cosx) =(1tanx)/(1+tanx) = (tan(pi/4) tanx)/(1+tan(pi/4)tanx)=tan(pie/4 x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the second last step.. where did the square roots go? isnt it suppose to be: (1sinx/cosx)(1sinx/cos)/(1+sinx/cos)(1+sinx/cosx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually the factors (cosx+sinx) are there both in num and denom hence they cancel each other

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if its (cosx+sinx)^2, it has to equal (cosx+sinx)(cosx+sinx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(cosx+sinx)^2= (cosx+sinx)(cosx+sinx) (correct ) that is why one of the (cosx+sinx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0USE ..A*A B*B =(A)^2 (B)^2 = (A+B)(AB)...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, then why isnt :(cosx+sinx)^2 > (cosxsinx)(cosx+sinx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so (a+b)^2 =(a+b)(a+b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if u multiply (a+b)(ab) u get (a^2 b^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so (a^2b^2) does not equal (ab)^2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0=(1tanx)/(1+tanx) = (tan(pi/4) tanx)/(1+tan(pi/4)tanx)=tan(pie/4 x) can u explain that? .. where did pi/4 come from ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. If you do that on a calculator you get that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Tan(pi/4) is always 1. Look on a unit circle.
