Hey TrimHonduras.

Hint: Try using the sum of angles of formula to get cos(3t) down to cos(2t), cos(t), sin(2t) and sin(t) and then use it again to get sin(2t) in terms of sin(t) and cos(t) and also cos(2t) in terms of sin(t) and cos(t) and then collect everything together. - Jul 19th 2013, 08:25 PMTrimHondurasRe: Please help me on my Homework.
