Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is simply \[\cos(\theta)\cos(\theta)\cos(\theta)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ex if it is sin ^4 u do sin2)^2 and then you put the identitiy for sin^2 and then solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm I'm not familiar with any identities that decrease the power on trig functions. Are you sure it wasn't suppose to be \(cos (3\theta)\) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well start with \[\cos(\theta) (\cos^2(\theta)) = \cos(\theta)(1  \sin^2(\theta))\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh I guess we could use the HalfAngle Formulas to decrease power. I somehow forgot about those when I made my last comment :) lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here's a helpful identity we can use. \[\large \color{royalblue}{\cos^2x=\frac{1+\cos2x}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah u are right i will have to use the power reducing identities

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i started by using that but i don't know what to do after that step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large \cos^3x\quad =\quad \cos x \color{royalblue}{\cos^2 x} \quad = \quad \cos x \color{royalblue}{\frac{1+\cos2x}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Im not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for. But something to notice here is that we no longer even have a squared cosine, since the two cosines we're left with have different INSIDES, we can't combine them that way.
