    and you should convince yourself why it is fine to divide by cos2x . ( it is fine. )

    so the general solution for tan(x) = tan(y) x = y + pi*k so in our case: tan(2x) = tan(pi/4) 2x = pi/4 + pi*k x = pi/8 + (pi/2) * k

    cause if the question was : sin^2(x) - cos^2(x) = 0 then we get tan^2(x) = 1 tan(x) = +/-1 so 1. tan(x) = 1 tan(x) = tan(pi/4) x = pi/4 + pi * k x = pi/4 , 5pi/4 2.tan(x) = -1 tan(x) = tan(-pi/4) x = -pi/4 + pi*k x = 3pi/4 , 7pi/4 so : x = pi/4, 3pi/4, 5pi/4, 7pi/4

    and i thought it was sin(2x) - cos(2x) = 0
