    Just thought Maybe you can take the right hand side and show the left hand side Try to play with this thought: sin(3x) is sin(2x+x)

    That should be a hint to use the sum identity for sin

    Though I could be wrong but I don't think this is an identity.

    One way to find out is to find a counterexample

    cos(2x)=2cos^2 (x)-1

    Maybe the problem has been written incorrectly.

    Unless the instructions say to: Prove if true and give a counterexample if false. If so then I have accidentally given you the answer.

    cos(2x)=1-2sin^2 (x) so what's sin(x)*cos(2x)?
