Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It makes no sense as it it presented. Trigonometric Identities are statements and the term "derivative" has no meaning for such a statement. Can you provide the exact wording of the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We're looking for \(\dfrac{dY}{dt}\)? Can you find \(\dfrac{d}{dt}\cos^{4}(t)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Jay you didn't answer the question kirby asked. Is it suppose to be \(\cos(4t)\) or \(\cos^4(t)\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Just think of it as the chain rule. You can move the exponent if it confuses you: \[\frac{d}{dt}\cos^4t=\frac{d}{dt}(\cos t)^4 = 4(\cos t)^3(\sin t)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3sin t comes from the fact that it is the derivative of cos t by using the chain rule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Just use the same logic on \[\frac{d}{dt}\sin^4t=4\sin^3t(\cos t)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so now: \[4\cos^3t(\sin t)  4\sin^3t(\cos t) = 4\cos t*\sin t(\cos^t+\sin^2t)=4\cos t*\sin t(1) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[4\cos t \sin t = 2(2\cos t \sin t) = 2\sin(2t)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since we're just doing your homework, I'd do it this way. \(\cos^{4}(t)  \sin^{4}(t) = [\cos^{2}(t)  \sin^{2}(t)][\cos^{2}(t) + \sin^{2}(t)] = \cos(2x)\) It's a lot easier after that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, not sure why I wrote 2x on the end, there. Should be 2t. If you are going to make me do ALL the work, you'll have to show me how that last step happened. There's a whole lot of stuff in there that magically turned into cos(2t).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The method by tkhunny is also excellent :) It is shorter but I usually just do it "straightforward" unless I'm stuck and tkhunny's method is a good trick to make the derivative a lot easier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Go right ahead. Let's see your first attempt. Hint: It is amazingly trivial! Remember your trigonometry. This is not much of a calculus problem.
