Hey guys can you prove this identity for me and please tell me how you do it. Since its my first time proving identites, I have no idea what to do. Sin theta + Sin 2 theta ________________________ = Tan theta 1 + Cos theta + Cos 2 theta Thanks

Where are the formula's from?

Ok, but how do you put the formula's into place? Like do you subtitute them into the equation. But how?
