Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\(\cos2\theta=2\cos^2\theta1\) \(\sin2\theta=2\sin\theta\cos\theta\) using these see if u can do. If u find any difficulties and need some more help plz ask:)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ (1+\cosθ+\cos2θ)/(\sinθ+\sin2θ)=\cotθ \implies\]\[ \cosθ+2\cos^2θ =\frac{\cos \theta}{\sin \theta}(\sin \theta+2 \sin \theta \cos \theta)=\cos \theta + 2 \cos^2 \theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0prove: (1+cosθ+cos2θ)/(sinθ+sin2θ)=cotθ (1+cosθ+cos2θ)/(sinθ+2sinθcosθ) (cosθ+cos θ )/(sinθ+sinθ) cos2θ/sin2θ (2〖cos〗^2 θ1)/2cosθsinθ (cosθ1)/sinθ not sure where i went wrong... :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Taking the expression in the left hand side \[\frac{1+\cos\theta+\cos2\theta}{\sin\theta+\sin2\theta}\] \[=\frac{1+\cos\theta+2\cos^2\theta1}{\sin\theta+2\sin\theta\cos\theta}\] factor out \(\cos\theta\) from numerator and \(\sin\theta\) from denominator \[=\frac{\cos\theta+2\cos^2\theta}{\sin\theta+2\sin\theta\cos\theta}\] \[=\frac{\cos\theta(1+2\cos\theta)}{\sin\theta(1+2\cos\theta)}\] cancelling the common factor \((1+2\cos\theta)\) \[=\frac{\cos\theta}{\sin\theta}\] \[=\cot\theta\] nw we have shown that lhs=rhs hence proved

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cos3θ=4cos^3θ3cosθ (I am trying to prove this identity) cos3θ = cos(θ+2θ) = cosθ cos2θ  sinθ sin2θ = cosθ (2cos^2θ  1)  2sin^2θ cosθ (basically here can you please explain how to go from sinθ sin2θ >2sin^2θ cosθ ) = 2cos^3θ  cosθ  2(1cos^2θ) cosθ = 4cos^3θ  3cosθ thanks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\sin2\theta=2\sin\theta\cos\theta\] \[\sin2\theta*\sin\theta=2\sin\theta\cos\theta*\sin\theta\] \[=2\sin\theta*\sin\theta*cos\theta\] \[=2\sin^2\theta\cos\theta\] Is that clear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\sin2\theta=\sin(\theta+\theta)\] \[=\sin\theta\cos\theta+\cos\theta\sin\theta\] \[=2\sin\theta\cos\theta\]
