2sin2 x

2(1 - cos2 x) = 2 + cos x

2 - 2cos2 x = 2 + cos x

- 2cos2 x - cos x = 0

cos x(-cos x - 1) = 0

cos x = 0 or -cos x - 1 = 0

cos x = -1

Since the cosine has a period of 2pi, in the interval 0 â‰¤ x â‰¤ 2pi

when cos x = 0, x = pi/2 and x = 3pi/2, and

when cos x = -1, x = pi.

All values of x that satisfy the given equation are:

x = pi/2 + 2npi, x = pi +2npi, and x = 3pi/2+ 2npi where n is any integer.

sin cubed + cos cubed (sin + cos)( sin squared - sin.cos + cos squared) (sin + cos)(1 + sin.cos)

### How do you prove that the sin over one minus the cosine minus one plus the cosine over the sine equals zero?

Multiply both sides by sin(1-cos) and you lose the denominators and get (sin squared) minus 1+cos times 1-cos. Then multiply out (i.e. expand) 1+cos times 1-cos, which will of course give the difference of two squares: 1 - (cos squared). (because the cross terms cancel out.) (This is diff of 2 squares because 1 is the square of 1.) And so you get (sin squared) - (1 - (cos squared)) = (sin squared) + (cos squared) - 1. Then from basic trig we know that (sin squared) + (cos squared) = 1, so this is 0.

### Is cos squared x the same as cos x squared?

No. Cos squared x is not the same as cos x squared. Cos squared x means cos (x) times cos (x) Cos x squared means cos (x squared)

### If a cos theta plus b sin theta equals 8 and a sin theta - b cos theta equals 5 show that a squared plus b squared equals 89?

There is a hint to how to solve this in what is required to be shown: a and b are both squared.Ifa cos &theta; + b sin &theta; = 8a sin &theta; - b cos &theta; = 5then square both sides of each to get:a&sup2; cos&sup2; &theta; + 2ab cos &theta; sin &theta; + b&sup2; sin&sup2; &theta; = 64a&sup2; sin&sup2; &theta; - 2ab sin &theta; cos &theta; + b&sup2; cos&sup2; &theta; = 25Now add the two together:a&sup2; cos&sup2; &theta; + a&sup2; sin&sup2; &theta; + b&sup2; sin&sup2; &theta; + b&sup2; cos&sup2; &theta; = 89&rarr; a&sup2;(cos&sup2; &theta; + sin&sup2; &theta;) + b&sup2; (sin&sup2; &theta; + cos&sup2; &theta;) = 89using cos&sup2; &theta; + sin&sup2; &theta; = 1&rarr; a&sup2; + b&sup2; = 89
