Grade 12 Trig Identities trouble....help please... I'm not sure how to prove that ((sin2x/(1+cos2x)) * (cosx)/(1+cosx) = tan(x/2)
try the double angle formulas \[\large \sin 2x=2\sin x \cos x\]and\[\large \cos 2x = 2\cos^2 x -1\]
Yep that's what I have tried out...I keep getting stuck though
because one side is tan(x/2)
I've tried it and find what I think is the answer. See if you can find it; I used this page http://www.sosmath.com/trig/douangl/douangl.html
Thank you very much I will go take a look
