[1-tan^2(x/2)] / [1+tan^2(x/2)] = cosx

I don't want to bother you, but do you know of any trig identity site that discusses the rules of sin or cos or tan of (x/2)?

thanks

don't you want to change the more complex side into a simplified state? is there a specific rule or is that jsut my teacher's preference?
