You have written this: \(\dfrac{\cos(2x)}{1} + \sin(2x) = \tan(\frac{\pi}{4} - x)\). Is this what you intend?
Ohhhhh you are right my mistake!
It should be (cos2x/(1+sin2x) = tan(pi/4- x)

\[\frac{\cos^2(x)}{1+\sin^2(x)}\]?
No, They are not to the power of 2, they are just 2x :)
Well, it certainly looks like an exercise in double angles. Perhaps expanding all three expressions will lead to something.
hmm
im still stuck :(
I THINK I GOT IT :)
yay double angles worked~~~!!
Let's see your work and perhaps we can untangle it. \(\cos(2x) = \cos^{2}(x) - \sin^{2}(x) = 1 - 2\sin^{2}(x) = 2\cos^{2}(x) - 1\) \(\sin(2x) = 2\sin(x)\cos(x)\) You may wish to convert the tangent to sine/cosine. Really, the idea behind these things is to get you to EXPLORE these relationships. Don't expect to see a clear solution right away. Play with it until somthing pops out.
@pottersheep do you need hint?
