Is there a typo? -1 - 1 = -2, not -1. And if you can't factor a 2 out of everything, then you can't cancel the 2, so the last line here is wrong. The same goes for sin(x). You had the right idea, but you didn't have the details right. -Dan
Thanks I see where I went wrong now, can you also please help with the rest? Edit: I don't know how to use the parenthesis?

Originally Posted by Macleef wow, you lost me -_- from the beginning when you wrote, "we'll use this identity" There are two ways to get at this identity. I'll use the one you will have been likely to see: (The quick way to do this is using a half-angle identity.) -Dan
