Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, remember that cos(2x) = cos^2 x  sin^2 x So if cos^2 x = sin^2 x then cos^2 x  sin^2 x = 0 or cos(2x) = 0 Can you take it from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to make a substitution. Replace sin^2 theta with 1  cos^2 theta or replace cos^2 theta with 1sin^2 theta.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If cos(2x) = 0 then 2x = pi/2 + k.pi, for any integer k. Hence x = pi/4 + k.pi/2, for any integer k.
