This is still vague... but:$$P(x)=\frac12\left(3x^21\right)\\P(\cos \theta)=\frac12\left(3\cos^2 \theta1\right)$$We use a few trigonometric identities to rewrite our \(\cos^2\theta\):$$\cos(\alpha+\beta)=\cos\alpha\cos\beta\sin\alpha\sin\beta\\\cos2\theta=\cos(\theta+\theta)=\cos^2\theta\sin^2\theta\\\cos^2\theta+\sin^2\theta=1\implies\sin^2\theta=1\cos^2\theta\\\text{so }\cos2\theta=\cos^2\theta1+\cos^2\theta=2\cos^2\theta1\\\text{so }\cos^2\theta=\frac{\cos2\theta+1}{2}$$Now actually use these:$$P(\cos\theta)=\frac12\left(\frac{3\cos2\theta+3}{2}1\right)=\frac14\left(3\cos2\theta+1\right)$$
