Hey, I have a few questions I just can't seem to get down, looking for some help here...

1)sin2x= 2csc2x-tanx

1-cos2x

2) cos(x+y)cos(x-y)=(cosx)^2 +(cosy)^2 -1

3) (cosx)^6 + (sinx)^6 = 1-3(sinx)^2 + 3(sinx)^4

Thanks in advance! :D

for (3)

since , you can write:

convert all cosines into sines and your proof will be complete. - May 27th 2010, 03:13 PMorca432

Here's a little more.

Now expand this.
