Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure about your working but i completed till here: \[\frac{\cos A \sin 3A + \cos 3A \sin A}{\sin A \cos A}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then: \[\frac{\sin(A+3A)}{\sin A \cos A}\]idk what to do after this..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{\sin(4A)}{\frac{1}{2}\sin(2A)}\] This the next step? :) hmm fun problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{4\sin(2A) \cos(2A)}{\sin(2A)}\] \[=4\cos(2A)\] Something like that... :D Yayyy team!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and sin (2*2A) is like sin (2* X)= 2*2 sin (2A)cos(2A)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm so we're taking advantage of Sine's Double Angle Formula, On top, in one direction, on the bottom in the other direction. Yah looks like Jason has the right idea also ^^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have this general formula with me: sin2A = 2sinAcosA But how did you guys converted sin4A into this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let's say A=X then its gona be sin (2X), now X=2A therefore its gona be the conversion mentioned above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lol. No. this was the last problem of 26. i had the answers but wasn't getting the last step!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@zepdrix Where did the 1/2 in your second last step go? D:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So we're dividing by a fraction, let's fix that a sec. \[\frac{\sin(4A)}{\frac{1}{2}\sin(2A)} \quad = \quad \frac{2\sin(4A)}{\sin(2A)}\] Then we apply the Sine Double Angle Formula to the top part.\[\frac{2\sin(2\cdot 2A)}{\sin(2A)} \quad = \quad \frac{2\cdot 2 \sin(2A)\cos(2A)}{\sin(2A)}\]
