    ex if it is sin ^4 u do sin2)^2 and then you put the identitiy for sin^2 and then solve

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

    well start with \[\cos(\theta) (\cos^2(\theta)) = \cos(\theta)(1 - \sin^2(\theta))\]

    Oh I guess we could use the Half-Angle Formulas to decrease power. I somehow forgot about those when I made my last comment :) lol

    Here's a helpful identity we can use. \[\large \color{royalblue}{\cos^2x=\frac{1+\cos2x}{2}}\]

    yeah u are right i will have to use the power reducing identities

    \[\large \cos^3x\quad =\quad \cos x \color{royalblue}{\cos^2 x} \quad = \quad \cos x \color{royalblue}{\frac{1+\cos2x}{2}}\]

    Im 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.
