Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok u can put 3sinx4sin^3x rather than sin3x (3sinx4sin^3x)/(sinx)(cosx) now take sinx common from above equation sinx(34sin^2x)/sinx cosx =(34sin^2x)/cosx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you can put sin^2x=1cos^2x (34(1cos^2x)/cosx (34+4cos^2x)/cosx 1+4cos^2x/cosx 1(14cos^2x)/cosx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as u know cos2x=12cos^2x and cos4x=14cos^2x now put 14cos^2x as cos4x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you for pointing it out step by step! I have a really hard time figuring out which identities to use and how to simplify them. I hope you don't mind me asking, what step was secant changed?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok sin3x=3sinx4cos^3x cos3x=4cos^3x3cosx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we will solve both separately first then we'll multiply them ok u can put 3sinx4sin^3x rather than sin3x (3sinx4sin^3xsinx) now take sinx common from above equation sinx(34sin^2x1) =sinx(24sin^2x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and for cos3x+cosx as cos3x=4cos^3x3cosx so 4cos^3x3cosx+cosx now take cosx common cosx(4cos^2x3+1)=cosx(4cos^2x2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now combine both equations sinx(24sin^2x)/cosx(4cosx^22)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0take 2 from above and 2 from below 2(sinx)(12sin^2x)/2(cosx)(2cos^21) =sinx/cosx=tanx and yes it is true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you! The second one was true but apparently the first one was also true, not false. I appreciate the time it took to go through all the steps, though! It makes understanding the concept a lot easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0may be first one can true .. perhaps i did some mistake in solving this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It might be the secant part in (sin3x/sin x cos x)=4 cos xsec x ? I'm not very good at trig identities, though....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok try this urself by using the formulas which i told u . u can do this now just don't skip any step ok

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[3sinx4\sin^3/\sin x \cos x =4 \cos x\sec x\] \[(34\sin^2x)/cosx=4 \cos x  \sec x\] \[(34(1\cos^2x)/cosx=4\cos x\sec x\] \[1+4\cos^2x/cosx\] \[ 14\cos^2x/\cos=4\cos x\sec x\] \[4\cos^2x1/\cos=4\cos^2x1/\cos\] I tried my best c': it's just my best is sub par....
