    Remember that \sin 2x = 2\sin x \cos x.

    What? 2sin(x) does not equal 2sin(x)cos(x)

    From trig, \sin(2x)=2\sin x\cos x

    This is not the same as saying 2\sin x.

    Ok wow, am I just supposed to know that? It seems to me like Calc II is just getting out of hand, like there's all these things we're just expected to know already that I've never even heard of, and I got an A+ in calc I.

    it's a trig identity...you should know more of them to become better with more problems. good luck in Calc II
