Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have written this: \(\dfrac{\cos(2x)}{1} + \sin(2x) = \tan(\frac{\pi}{4}  x)\). Is this what you intend?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It should be (cos2x/(1+sin2x) = tan(pi/4 x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, They are not to the power of 2, they are just 2x :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, it certainly looks like an exercise in double angles. Perhaps expanding all three expressions will lead to something.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let'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.
