4cos2x = - √8 cos(3x + 180º) = √3/2 cos2x-sin2xsecx = 1 Thanks in advance.

What have you tried with these?
Well we're either factoring or using the trig identities (along with addition/half/double angle formulas)
Some identities could be helpful here, but maybe you don't need them at all. Take #1 for example

for 4cos2x = -√8 I got 67.5 degrees and 112.5 degrees. I'm still trying to find cos(3x + 180 deg) = √3/2 and the other one. Thanks for your help
