# Thread: Cosines of multiples of x

1. ## Cosines of multiples of x

Express cos^4x and sin^4x cos^2x in terms of cosines of multiples of x

How would you approach this question?

2. ## Re: Cosines of multiples of x

Start with one of the well-known trig identities: cos(2x) = 2cos^2x - 1, so cos^2x = 1/2(1+cos(2x). Also use sin^4x = (sin^2x)^2 = (1 - cos^2x)^2.
